If you kept your boat outside during the winter and it got down to 2 degrees on Thursday night, ya think it might be a good thing to do Friday but take your motor in to have it winterized? Engine block temp was in the teens and it was frozen SOLID. It had been stored outside with no cover and life jackets on both sides of the engine took hours to thaw enough to get them unstuck from the floor. It took until Saturday afternoon before it was started and running. I was in awe that not even the first freeze plug had popped! No water was noted in the oil at the shop, but without the back pressure created by having the drive underwater, you still can't be certain that any damage had occured. Towing a ski boat to the lake when it is below freezing had quite a few other drivers looking at me like I was crazy (the jury is still out on that one). Backed it in (No waiting in line this time), fired it up, brought it to temp, and powered it up. You see what I saw, oil slightly dirty, but I was expecting it to be milkshake! One lucky dude!!! I might have said that too quickly, just wait until he gets my winterization bill. Since you have read this far, might as well throw in a plug for our web site-- ShipShapeTn.Com Oh yes, that was ice on the ramp!
