My boat is always last in the marina still sitting in the water. You know my season isn't over.

You in Bemidji?

Mid 80's here all next week, though I will be in Tomahawk where it will be just breaking 80. No complaints here.

Well, there aren't any big towns near Tomahawk, but you weren't even close.

I think "winterization" needs to be defined.

There are various levels of Winterization and the time to perform and price will vary. Winterizing in the south can be different than those who live in Yankeeville.

If you are cheap and live in the south, then draining the block and trans-cooler is all that may be necessary (and this is quick and can be done in minimal time with only a screw driver and wrench).

If you have a heater then your time/price goes up
If you add anti-freeze (or equivalent) to your ballast/heater then your time/price goes up
If you pull the plugs and spray with fogging oil then your time/price goes up
If you remove then replace the impellor (in the spring) then your time/price goes up
If you change your oil then your time/price goes up
If you shrink wrap then your time/price goes up
Some dealers have a winter storage option
Some dealers have a "start-up" in the spring option included in their price

Different levels different prices. Do it all at once yourself or have it done! Try dryer sheets in and around the boat. We have used them for over 25 yrs and never had a critter problem. Especially mice. An the storage unit, garage, barn smells great in the spring time.
