When to change volvo penta saildrive seal

I have a Volvo Penta Saildrive on my sailboat. I had a new saildrive seal put on 5 years ago, and the engineer who changed it suggested that the old one was in perfect condition. I dont know weather this was due to the fact that the boat was on a fresh water lake at the time. However the boat is now in the Mediterranean and I want to know at what stage should I replace it again. It was a big job and expensive last time, so I dont want to do it if its not needed.
Someone also pointed out that if its not replaced within a certain period, the insurance is not covered. Is this true?
Any advice would be appreciated.
