You da man,

Do you keep your boat in heated storage or did you winterize it again after your runs last weekend. This weather is nuts......

The storage unit I use is awesome. Even with the temps this week in the teens, the inside of my unit has not got below freezing (not even the bottles of water I have on a shelf have frozen). I do a basic winterization. Drain the motor, drain the water pump (disconnect both hoses and drain), empty the strainers, and blow out my ballast. I dont fog the motor, no need to when you can run the boat once a month at least still during our Texas "winters".
