I posted this on a another thread I think that I should have been posted here.

I just attempted to winterize my boat and wanted to run it by you guys to make sure that I did it correctly. It is an 83 Bayliner 19' cuddy with a 4 cylinder Volvo engine IO. Let me know if I covered all bases. I did not take the impeller completely out as I was not sure how to do it without damaging it. This is what I did today:

What I did on 10-07-07

1. Remove drain plug from manifold.

2. Remove drain plug from copper pipe under

manifold. Probably did not need to be done.

3. Remove boat drain plug from back of boat.

4. Take off impeller cover and crank engine.

over to remove water. (larger bolts go on top

and bottom, smaller ones go on the side). Left cover off.

5. Lower outdrive.

6. Remove battery.

7. Put stable in gas tank.

8. Cover boat.

I hope that I did not miss anything. Please let me know and thanks.

Ken wrong forum

From Stratocaster.:) ..Read the instructions, people. On the Main Page, under "Projects", it clearly says:
If you have COMPLETED a project, major or minor, please post the details here. Please don't ask questions about "potential" projects in this forum.

DO NOT ask if anybody has done such-and-such, or how do I do so-and-so here.

This forum is ONLY for projects that you have completed and want to share with others.

Is it a closed cooling system? If so, my '85 has a plug on the bottom of the heat exchanger.
