Question First Time Winterizing 82' S&S.

Apologies up front: new to TT

I have read all of the threads in this forum and got a little , so I need some specific (82' 351w, PowerSlot) winterizing tips/how to's. I am new to the maintenance on her. A family friend (boat shop owner) would have helped/guided me this, but he has moved on to a better place...it's all on me now All help will be greatly appreciated!

JJ

For one, how do I change the oil (42 hrs this summer)? There's only one "boat shop" in my town that quoted me $190+tax to change the oil/winterize an inboard. There is a certified MC shop about 50 miles away that quoted me $140+tax plus add in gas there and back twice = $220. Dang rapist...I would much rather learn to do it myself the first time, so I know TLC was given.

Easy, look in Overtons, West Marine, Barts, etc for an oil pump. I like the drill pumps. They are cheap, quick, and easy. Stick the tube down the dip stick tube, suck the oil out, change the filter, put new in, drink another beer

This is the one I have. Napa has them too, and most other auto parts stores

Does your boat not have an oil drain plug at the center bottom of the transom?
