How much winterizing do I need?

I keep my boat in the Chesapeake Bay near the Rt 50 Bay Bridge. For the first time this winter, I am leaving the boat in the water. My marina has a bubble system and most of the boats never haul out for winter.

Do I need to winterize the engine? It''s the raw water type. What about the water tanks? They live below the water line under the settees. Should I empty them, antifreeze them? I don''t live aboard and would rather not leave a heater or any other appliance running while I''m gone. Any thoughts appreciated.
