Not the time to Skimp
By Nick Fugate
If you live anywhere in the country where snow falls, then you know it is about time to take your boat out of the water. What does that mean? Well it means that it is time to protect your investment and WINTERIZE.
The most important thing to winterize on the boat is the engine. The last thing you want to happen is to have a cracked engine block. Think about it, it is much less expensive and less time consuming to winterize your engine now than to have to rebuild or replace a cracked block in the spring. You will want to use marine grade, -100, blue antifreeze to do the job correctly. Though the temperature may never go below -20 F you still want to use the -100 antifreeze.
