Winterize PS 190 1990. NO Antifreeze.

Ford 351. To winterize this year I Plan to - First, Run Fuel Stabil, Change Engine and Tranny Oil and filter, Add Fogging Oil Direct into Carb, Drain Both Blocks, Uncouple the hose in between Exhaust Manifolds, Take out impeller and open up all hoses that hold water. WD 40 All over the Engine Area, Grease anywhere necessary. Take out all seats and hoover the carpet. Then check The Trailer, Brakes, Tyres, Grease all Nipples and Wheel Bearings. Then Cover.
This is My second Year Owning This Boat, The Engine is as new- under 50 hours. (new Engine last Yr). I Live in Scotland UK -Cold Winter, Anything else You guys can recommend to me will be Well appreciated. Thanks.

The only things that I do different is, I also spray fogging oil in each spark plug hole, wash and wax my boat one last time.

Thanks for The Reminders Guys, First The Battery comes out and into the garage and gets a trickle charge once a month. Of course Boats washed and Waxed. The Fogging oil goes into The carb only, Whats The difference with The Fogging Oil to each spark plug hole, other than direct to the carb Throat, It does The same Job or ?. Thanks.

Use the BatteryTender. A trickle will do your battery in sooner than later. There is a good factiod article on the web site that I linked.

Agreed, the best thing you can use to keep it charged, set it up and forget about it till next spring.
