Winterizing For Cold Weather

I would like to keep the record straight.My boat was less than an hour away and yes I watched the weather guessers pretty close.If we were getting a cold air mass like this weekend provided I would run down to winterize the engine. since I only day sailed it I almost never had water in the tanks,and used a portipotti for those moments of need.The Prudent thing to do would be winterize for the three months and sail from march to nov. the three years on the lake I enjoyed almost year round sailing and had uncommonly mild weather.The saying if in doubt don''t go out can be turned to if in doubt winterize 6 dollars is a bunch cheaper than a new engine.
