View Full Version : To winterize or not?

So it is supposed to get in the lower 30's this weekend 34 is the low, my boat is in a storage barn. Will it be safe? I went out tonight would like to hit it a few more times before the winter, any suggestions? The block is not drained.

I'd drain the block for a little CYA. Takes all of 45 seconds to do that.

34 is the LOW.....I wouldn't worry about it.

Was 29 here in Indy last week and I'm sure no problem.

DISCLAIMER, I"M NOT BUYING YOU A NEW ENGINE IF YOUR BLOCK FREEZES AS JR SAYS IT"S EASY TO DRAIN: Imagine a jar of water sitting where you boat is, would it freeze the water solid and break the glass?

Dude, I'd just drain it. I'd much rather spend the 45 seconds to do that then loose sleep at night.
