From what I have been reading about diesels, the engine preparation is the most involved. The oil on mine looks like it could be changed soon along with the antifreeze. Need to get my Yanmar book and read it this weekend. How often does the diesel filter need to be cleaned?
for dingy sailing outside of the normal season. It does not - directly, anyway - imply actual frostbite. Just a figure of speech.

Frostbite is not unheard of, though....
