Re: question about winterizing water system
Ditto. All I use is -100 (in other systems). If it mixes with a little water, itís still amply potent. -50 actually freezes well above 0 F. Itís rated not to burst to -50F. Accidentally mix a bit of water and those temps rise dramatically. My engines only get -100.
Since I get mast water in the bilge, I also put -100 there. Although, I remove all float switches, as they somehow get ruined sitting in the slurry all winter. I also pull a low thru hull to drain, but it doesnít all get out.
I really need to sail south in the winter. I figure it takes us 6 days to winterize and 6 more to commission. I can get pretty far south in that amount of time. Bermuda for the winter? I wonder if thatís even possible. Ie dockage.
