Sodar, great idea and funny story!

I just picked mine up from being pickled. I was so excited that is was raining the best part was the farm down the road just got done throwing manure on the fields and the tractors have to drive a 1/4 mile stretch to re fill. So you guessed it I was lucky enough to drive the rain drenched manure soaked portion of the road. It just took me an hour hosing her down and getting all the residual s!#t off! Next nice day Ill pull it from garage winter wash and wax and put her up on blocks!!!

Did a complete service (oil, oil filter, fuel filter, spark plugs).
Waxed complete boat, including bottom and trailor.
Filled block with antifreeze.
Greased wheel bearings.
303'd the interior.
Shampooed the carpet.
Covered it and put it back in the garage until spring. Will replace the raw pick-up impeller at that time.

Always the worst day of the year. Winterized. On top of that it's 80 degrees out (not able to get out on the water anywhere) but calling for 34 tonight and highs in the 40-50's, lows in the lower 30's for the next few days. Heated storage which is nice but it looks like we're done for the year.

Is there an incentive to doing this just prior to putting boat into storage for the winter?

I'll be pulling mine out in about a month or so to get the interior redone. Hoping to get on the water a few more times before that day.

Not really. Just like putting it up nice and clean. We try to keep the interior clean throughout the summer, but sometimes spills happen we don't catch. My goal, like all of yours, is come spring to be able to get the boat water ready with as little effort as possible. I believe 303 has a mosturizer that my keep the interior from drying out through the winter months.

How do you like how they work, do they really help is what I mean? I've always considered doing mine.

Pulled the drain plugs in anticipation of colder weather coming, but left the boat on the lift.
I still hope to get out a few more times before winterizing.
