Winterization procedure for closed cooling system

Anyone out there know where I can find this, or know the basic procedure. Became the proud owner of a 2001 X-Star this year but unfortunately the time has come to winterize. Never had an MC with a closed cooling system so am a little confused.

It's the standard Indmar 310hp with an Orca (half system) closed cooling system. Any ideas much appreciated. thanks

Haven't ever done this personally, but the new owners manual has this in the winterization section. Most of the owners manuals are available for download under the "knowledge center" tab at www.mastercraft.com. Good luck.

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.

Thanks Eastie!! I was wondering about this too, as this is the first winter I am leaving my boat at my parents vacation house. It gets into the low 30's about 4 times a year. At least I have a little peice of mind now!
