Guys,
While winterizing my boat this season, I thought it would be nice to document the process with some photos. There always seem to be tons of questions about winterizing every year. With a little free time at work, I put the photos together into a powerpoint presentation and uploaded it to that thar inteweb. Obviously there will be variations in how the engine looks and where things are located, depending on your brand and model of boat, but this should give you a pretty good idea.

Check it out!

Good Job...I'm going to use it next weekend when I winterize my mastercraft for the first time. I guess I'll have to stop by the liquor store first. Thanks.

I dunno, but I did it for the first time ever! Not because I am worried about it freezing, but because I have plans to not touch the boat until March of next year. These next few months are reserved for snowboarding and dirt biking!

Should you use KY or Astroglide to get the impeller in?

I viewed the powerpoint on winterizing, but now cannot re-open it. I have tried downloading it in two different computers but still cannot view it. Can you tell me how I can view, or could you email me the powerpoint file?

Thanks,

Wow, thanks very much! I really appreciate you sharing this. It's great. I've always paid a shop to do my winterizing, but this makes me think I might take it on myself next season.
Either that, or move to Texas and not bother! :rolleyes:

P.S. couldn't you have worked in some scantily clad women somehow? Would have spiffed it up a bit. :)

Nice job and thanks for doing that for those who aren't used to doing it or have had someone do it for them in the past. It will be a great help and save some persons some $$$$!

Good job.....but that doesn't help the old boat owners. Maybe I should do one for the guys with the old boats!! Too late this year.

Not too much would change for an old boat. In fact, a direct drive is much easier to work on. My boat is a V-drive.

The main differences would be the lack of a knock sensor, and where you spray the fogging oil. In a carbed engine, you just spray directly into the carb.

Great work on the powerpoint. However, since you showed a Supra in the water at the end, perhaps you should clarify that he boat should be removed from the water for the winter. Remember that Supra that was frozen into the lake a few winters ago, the pictures circulated on the net and were even in Waterski Magazine.

Heh. Good point.
If I was posting this on a Supra forum, I would have mentioned it. Mastercraft owners would never do something like that. They limit boat rescues to sandbars and helicopters, not ice.
