Red face 2014 seasons end

Here we are again, that time of year to put our boats to bed and winterize them properly. I hope everyone had a Safe, Breakdown Free year.
You may read up on a few ways to winterize but DO NOT USE THE MUFF METHOD unless you drain everything first.
Failure to drain first will result in a engine block cracking.
You can use the muffs to introduce the A/F after you drain everything first
You can pour in it thru the hoses to fill the engine block and manifolds.
You can leave drained with the drain plugs installed.
Fuel injected motors are fogged by plugging into the fuel line a 1Gal. container of gas, 2 stroke oil, sta-bil, and marvel mystery oil.
Have a Safe Holiday Season.

Thanks BT.
Mine is done. Dang it.
We squeezed the boats into a pole barn this past weekend. Not heated but out of the elements at least.
Have a good holiday season and winter ...then we'll be back to boating again.
