Yes. The standard line, true or not, is that most cracked engine blocks resulting from freezing occur in the south because more southerners decide not to winterize.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

According to weather.gov record low in Jan for Jacksonville FL was 7 degrees - 01/21/1985.

It only takes once. Nightmares might turn into horror stories.

At a minimum, dry block.
