confirm

I want to confirm i winterized properly. I have to move the boat from indoor heated sstorage to an unheated location. Engine is an MCX i drained block and all hose, blew out the shower and got water out of heater. Once done reattached all hoses and ran 5all gallons of RV antifreeze through till it cameto out exhaust. Should i have any concerns or should i be fine.

i have never done it myself but what about your ballast system? don't forget to pull both drain plugs out too so rain-water can drain out of the hull.

Sounds like you did it right. I'm not a boat mechanic but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night....

Sounds good so far.

Fog cylinders thru spark plug holes, crank it over a couple times with lanyard pulled
I usually pour pink RV anti-freeze into the heater core after blowing all the water out.
Spray engine with WD-40

What lake in NH? Lake Winnie?
