No Rick it is not allowed by either the marina or RI Dept of Evironmental Mgmt. I stand corrected, per my reply to sd's post above. I was relating my out-of-water winterizing process incorrectly to the OP's in-water thread.

Sorry for the confusion.

TB, So you don't feel that the Purlple -60 stuff that I've only seen for a few years now (in addition to the Pink-50 and Blue-100) specially made for engines with rust inhibitors etc... is good enough for 6 months storage ?

Crap, guess it's jump on TB day!

OK - I'll be green, (or purple) and switch to propylene glycol.

No need to switch TB, I already reported you to RIDEM, they'll be in contact!!!! No need to thank me, I am sure they can educate you on handling toxic materials.

Why thank you max, what a kind gesture. Know any good lawyers?

Wait a second . . . aren't you one of those RI bottom-feeders?

It's funny.... Although I consider myself a sailor first, I split my time between Sail and Power. Almost all of the powerboaters I've met who have inboards have some kind of setup that lets them flush with freshwater after each use, but none of my sailing friends ever do that. With a flushing setup handy, it's a simple matter to let the motor suck up a bunch of pink stuff and be ready for a freeze if it happens. It adds the cost of the antifreeze to each trip, but in powerboating, that's nothing compared to the cost of gas.

Quickstep, I also have had powerboats in the past, which I used for scuba diving all year round - did the same thing with my engines during winters. (using propylene glycol )

Funny thing about the sailors I mentioned with the self-installed raw water divertor valve, they're also cold water divers and learned the trick from local, winter charterdiving boats.

Just joking - your boat dosen't fit that profile, compared to a few unmentionables on the Bay.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
