OK. The deed is done. The winterizing is complete, and I'll sleep much better... largely because I didn't do a band-aid fix, but I also didn't have to resort to a haul-out.
It was a bit of work,...

The short plugged hose as a temporary place holder is another great idea that will fit into my "current plan". But I still face the chore of disassembling the area to get adequate access.

I thought of using "heat tape" as an approach, but it is inevitable that the dock power will go out during the height of the longest, coldest snow fall of the coming winter, so relying on shore power...

Valve partially closed? I had the same thought. I figured that maybe the handle was loose on the stem, so I managed to get a wrench down there to tighten the "nut" holding the handle in place. ...

The threaded plug is a good idea... elegantly simple.
The difficulty is lack of access: getting a wrench on the hose barb, and a counter-wrench on the ball valve will require removing the AC unit,...

The tarp idea is a good one. As for careening the boat: one of my hopes here is that my solution doesn't entail moving the boat. She is otherwise fully winterized, and in her winter slip. (Did I...

Thanks for the replies... if it were August, I'd not hesitate to do the in-the-water-plug-it routine, and proceed from there. But the water temperature is in the low 40 degrees F, too cold for me....

Can't close ball valve on thru-hull

Winterizing nightmare: the lever on the ball valve operates freely, but it doesn't feel like anything is moving, and the water flow to the strainer doesn't stop completely. Tightening the nut at the...

Thanks for the info... I knew that there had to be someone out there that had a successful experience with sandblasting.

Sandblasting vs. Soda blasting
