    Default Unexpected cold snap!

    So I went to the lake last Monday and summarized the boat, ran it, changed some fluids ect. I knew a cold was on its way this week but the low was stated to be 35 so I figured I would be safe and I wanted to get it done so when I get home from work in 2 weeks I can just use it and not look back.

    Well I get on weather.com today and check the weather where the boat is stored and it is currently 29 degrees! If it or below 29 or how long it has been 29 I do not know but now I'm worried I may suffer freeze damage. Ugh

    Your risk level is pretty low at 29. Is it in the water? That would give it a heat buffer as well.

    I think if you have the boat covered up plus the engine is covered it should be alright. I think it would have to stay 29 for a while

    Dude you're fine. You know where I live and my neighbor has had his x2 since 06 and has never winterized it one time.

    Ok ok. I just get paranoid.

    Brad, I need to go check out the USJ at some point this summer. I've never been out there

    You and Heidi should come down sometime. I'll take ya for a ride and maybe it'll show you the lay of the land. Yeah don't worry about your boat I'm sure its fine. My boat has 6 hours on the motor. Didn't even consider winterizing.
