hi there tommays and crazyru
thanks for the info -- this is a boat i am wanting to buy and she needs to be brought down....it won't be happening til mid or 3rd week of the month of nov...its over near SAG harbor area........you think the boat would be safe? what about freezing of hardware and water and all that? coolant lines/blocks...any risk?? i presume the surf temp doesn't get all that low since its salt water... i don't know squat about the cold weather when it comes to boats (or much about living in cold weather though i've been north in the winter a few times)..so pardon my ignorance.....thanks again for the awesome photos and info from both!
