Re: Winterizing on the hard
Perhaps I am a little confused. Correct me if I am wrong.
- Your boat is still in the water and you are considering having it hauled out?
- If your boat is still in the water you could run the engine as per normal, no?
- Closing your raw water valve seacock and removing the hose to stick into a bottle of anti-freeze is not your idea of fun?
- If you are already hauled and on the hard cooling water may be a bigger deal. You can still get away with running the engine for short periods without any cooling water. By short periods I mean a minute or two, perhaps 5, but don't take my word for it because I run my engine on land with a 5 gal. bucket fed by a hose for cooling water. I can run it almost as long as I like.
