How much winterizing do I need?

I live in Annapolis just a few miles south of the Bridge. While our winters vary from year to year, but I typically winterize my engine and water systems and drain the water tanks. I, lik emany Chesapeake frost biters, have a Y valve on my engine cooling water that allows a quick winterization of the system when I get back from a sail. There is often great sailing all year round. Last year I was frozen in for 5 weeks which was a record long freeze.
