Re: Yamar 2gm not winterize
I would not panic until you talk to the boat yard. There are a number of possible explanations on why you don't see pink, which result from the different ways that your engine could be winterized. For example I personally do not use 'pink' antifreeze in the engine, using the yellow-green type since it is intended for dissimilar metals. Also I have had boats on which I would drain the strainer and intake hose after winterizing the engine itself since you could not reliably get antifreeze into them, and they would drain when you disconnected the downstream hose at the strainer.
I also completely agree with aa3jy that before you make any attempt to do anything, that you talk to the marina and have a marina rep present before starting so they are aware of the situation.
