Winterizing Yanmar 2YM15 Sail Drive

We will soon be receiving our new to us J/100. Thinking ahead to winter I'm wondering about the correct way to winterize.

On our old Catalina 28 we had a T connector in fresh water intake hose. I would just attach a short piece of hose to that T connector and drop the other end into a bucket of anti freeze, start the engine and let it suck up the anti freeze.

From what I understand with the sail drive is that the fresh water comes in from the sail drive unit. So what is the correct way to winterize? Here is TN our boats normally stay in the water all winter.
