So... am I good???

So I winterized the X2 a couple of weeks ago but tonight is the first freeze so I'm a bit anxious. I ran the boat using the bucket method until warmed up to operating temp, then switched over to the marine antifreeze. Ran for a couple of minutes until the water from the exhaust appeared to be all antifreeze. My question is am I safe??

Ballast was done using bucket method as well...

Supposed to be in the mid twenties for about 6-8 hrs. Should be fine just wanted another OCD owner to confirm what I was thinking.

You're probably gonna be a bit cooler than me. I'm in Austin.

That's not a bad idea on the thermostat.
