If you aren't sure about doing the work yourself everyone has recommended, for what you have in your boat, you could afford to take it to a Yamaha mechanic. By all means, drain the tank, change all fuel filters, fuel lines, VST filter, water pump, and lower unit gear lube. Also, grease all the fittings, especially the steering. Not sure if you have hydraulic or mechanical steering, but I would completely disassemble the steering at the back, clean, and grease. It is not a whole lot of fun to hit the water and have your steering freeze up.
