If you're serious about this..it might be worth while to put a diverter valve into the raw water line on your boat, so that you can add antifreeze to it very easily, by sticking the hose from the diverter valve into a bucket or bottle of antifreeze, and then running the engine each time you come back to the dock. It'd be far less wear and tear on your boat than removing the hose each time IMHO, and less strain on the seacock fitting for the raw water intake.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
