( raw water engines - with engines warm and OFF...) - pull drain plugs on engines (inboard side) and drain. Replace plugs. They're brass and haven't teflon coated since 2010. No leaks no...

Re: Over-wintering boat - in water???

Joel, Some do pull their boats. Others leave them in. Joe, In the true sense of a "marina" definition, no. This is a backwater of the Ohio (ie, when the Ohio was dammed by the big dams in place of the multiple weir dams that dotted the Ohio, creeks backed up forming a lot of navigable area...

Re: Over-wintering boat - in water???

Jeff, Agreed. We live 40 minutes away from the new marina (50 mins to the current one), so it's been easy (?) to go to the boat. The placement of the Kasco unit (ordered last night with the optional timer/thermometer) is somewhat in question: - Option 1: With only 1 finger in position, I can positio...

Over-wintering boat - in water???

Folks, We normally pull our boat at the end of each season (which allows me to work on her exterior at my leisure (of which there never seems to be much of ... ;) ).

Re: Boat in the wet, but shafts won't drip

Just in case you weren't aware (and if you are, my apologies), the mating flange surfaces between the shaft and the engine should not be off by more that .003 of an inch. Ie. if you can get a .003" feeler gauge to slide between the flanges easily, there's a misalignment.
