Re: extending the season a bit

I use my boat every winter. I winterize the fresh water system and head when temps drop consistently below freezing. The engine not until water temps are in the low thirties and the air is below freezing day and night. If you fear cold snaps at night before winterizing, start and warm the engine in the evening. Heating the block to 190 will keep it from freezing before morning.
