Re: Winterizing on the hard
You really should drain the raw water OUT of the block from the tube on the starboard side of the motor
AND THEN run antifreeze through it as the several gallons of water in the block may dilute the antifreeze to much to work
Or just spend another $9.00 and suck a few more gallons through so you're not diluted...
I know sailors are cheap, I mean "frugal", and would rather spend their time draining the system than paying the $9.00 for three more gallons of AF.......
Still Tom's point is very valid and that is that you DO NOT want diluted PG antifreeze, especially if you started with -50.....
