tommays will become famous soon enough
It KILLS the water pump in about 11 seconds more or less

MUCH better to use a tall 5 gallon bucket or the correct ear muffs to keep the pump wet as it will self drain if the motor is level

IF you winterize it and drain the fuel bowl there is no need to do anything over the winter BUT the motor would like a cover as it helps a lot with the UV also

Most do have a drain screw for this reason

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
