Re: Winterizing on the hard
Caleb, I've already hauled the boat. After it was blocked, I started looking at the winterizing procedures. A mistake that I won't repeat next year! As far as using a bucket of antifreeze, no problem. But I read a while back about rigging a substitute water source for running an engine out of the water, and that is what I was trying to avoid (unless absolutely necessary...I don't mind the work if required!) But it sounds like it's not required after all.
Minnewaska, thanks for the information. I'm thinking I'll go ahead and do the normal run-and-drain as you described, taking extra precautions with the stands if required.
