Re: Modified strainer lid for flushing and winterizing

Looking good. I've wondered if the folks from Vetus are curious as to the spike in strainer basket lid sales. I bought two myself.

Re: Modified strainer lid for flushing and winterizing

As far as my engine goes, all I do is open up the strainer (after closing the thru hull) and just pour fresh water or AF into the strainer while the engine is running. No need to have a special cap on the strainer.
