I'm still trying to determine if pulling plugs and fogging cylinders is overkill. I do pull the lanyard and crank it a few times.

Cranking it after using fogging oil defeats the purpose of fogging. The rings will wipe the cylinders clean with only one stroke. Fogging the cylinders should be done last, no more turning of the motor.

Larry, Congrats on the new boat- I'm same age and I started from the other end of the spectrum in that im in the middle of restoring a 98 205 that was really abused- so if there are any strange questions about the boat I might have (or will encounter it). Just yell. Welcome to the forum and congrats on the nice find. Dave

Larry, there is a winterization and de-winterization checklist on this site under the FAQ section thanks to EastTXSkier.There is a link up at the top left of the page. Nice boat.
