Re: Thug proofing

In my case, the police made some arrests and got the thief. The marine unit has managed to recover two of the stolen outboards but mine is gone. So whilst CCTV and cameras maybe helpful, I'd rather...

Re: Do I need to worry about my engine or batteries?

For winterizing, I would fush the engine first, either by running it a few minutes at idle in a bucket of clear water or with the proprietary flush muffs. Remove the prop before running ! Afterwards...
