    I believe he is out of the water which makes a difference but still nothing to worry about just yet.

    And they all booked til February. If you know one let me know. My mistake was not booking and giving a retainer like a lawyer back in august.

    PS. Fresh water systems all done. Called boat/us about freeze coverage they said I don’t have it and had to get by 10/31. no I didn’t read the whole 39 page legalize policy. My bad.

    Instead of draining the hoses and block you can always use a winterization kit to fill the hoses and block with pink antifreeze ( https://www.westmarine.com/buy/camco--inboard-outboard-winterizing-kit--4754859?recordNum=17 ). The empty container is not heavy and can be placed on your swim platform. The 1 gallon jugs of pink antifreeze are about 8 pounds and can be lifted to the swim platform individually. I winterized my last two boats using this type of kit for 22 years and never had a problem with freezing. Just make sure you buy the good pink antifreeze that contains propylene glycol. Do not buy the cheap Wally World pink antifreeze that contains alcohol. It makes a difference.

    Great news. My mechanic just called me, he winterized the boat this week! Been so busy he just now letting folks their boats are done. Oh, and I need manifolds and risers, but I suspected that. Made my day! Thx for all offered help and advice!
