KID ARE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL
HOW MUCH WILL YOU REALLY GET TO USE THE BOAT THE REST OF THE YEAR ?
Time to winterize?
NOW may be it don't seem like this today but the months of September and October are rite around the corner and often have freezing conditions capable of messing up some expensive stuff in a boat live wells wash down water systems need a little anti freeze put in them
engines out drives need oils changed and water drained out
lets say the weather man say freeze warning tonight
WHAT YOU GOING TO DO?
This can get you by a day or two
Tape motor well vents closed with masking tape or duct tape
then set a 75-100 watt drop light on top of the motor metal surfaces ONLY
close the cover try to block off any wind or vents the heat from the light bulb will give you a extra day or two to get it winterized correctly
actually more blocks are cracked in September October and Novembers than January and February because people are caught off guard
do let it be you this year!
