winterizing

Hey...we are new to the mastercraft boating world. Would like to winterize our boat ourselves if possible. What all do we need to do? Any help is greatly appreciated.

This should help get you started.

Since you probably have a PCM engine, I'd add loosening your belts to the winterization list.

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.

What is the recommendation for winterizing in South Texas? Almost no chance of freeze. We will use the boat into October and then again late Feb to March 1st

If it were my boat, I'd winterize and perform annual maintenance when you were ready to quit using it in November.

/garaged boat in Texas with little likelihood of it getting below freezing in the attached garage.
