    Winterize Quicksilver conversion kit-gctid811533

    First time poster - I hope I am not offside

    I have a 2014 Bayliner Flight 185 with a 2014 Mercruiser 4.3L 190HP engine.

    Winterizing has proven difficult to easily access the drain plugs. I saw a Quicksilver tube drainage system installed on a new Bayliner 175 where you simply lower and raise drainage tubes for the winterization process. Is anyone aware of a similar such kit to convert my 185?

    Thank you in advance.


    Your 2014 I would think has a Single point drain were you Turn a blue knob to drain the block. Was the drain tube installed on a 3.0? If so I had that on my 2003 Sea Ray. It did not work to well. I still had to remove the lower hose from the water pump to completely drain the block.

      Unfortunately mine does not have the single port rather the multiple blue plastic plugs that each need to come out.

      Two on each side of the block, one in the front of the block and a single black metal plug also from in front


        And the manifolds ?
