New Boat Service
 
I'm taking my new boat in for a 20 hour service.
Should I have them change the fluids while they have it or should I change
the fluids later per the manual?
How often do you change fluids?
Anything I should pay attention to at 20 hours?

Since it's a new boat, it has a warranty. I'd let the dealer do the service
while the warranty is in effect.
My dealer checked everything at 20 hours: their 100 hour/annual service
checklist is two pages long, including alignment.
You should have an Owner's Handbook - mine is generic for several models -
that lists recommended services and intervals.
Oil, filters, lubricants are cheap insurance. Don't forget to check you
wheel bearings, too.

Have them change the oil and lower unit oil. That way you know if there is
any problem w/ water/metal.
