Thanks for chiming in. I am just going to use it to warm up the engine for oil change and winterizing it. No revving. Going to get all the supplies tomorrow and give it a shot this weekend.
Thanks for all the help.

Did the Plunger style yesterday, and it worked like a charm. Only thing is that it was a two person job. Had the wife turn the water on while i was in the boat. She watched the fake a lake under the boat and the water out of the mufflers. I sat in the boat so that if I had to shut off, I was close. Took about 12 minutes to get it warm, just under idle. Longest part of the job was extracting the oil!!! about an hour and half to get it out of oil drain hose. Yikes, forgot it took that long.
Anyway, long story short, The boat is winterized and waiting for storage. My Dad and I are going to make a fake a lake to attach to the raw water pump with valve. Just like Scott above. This way, the wife doesn't have to be on hook for helping me. I can also run RV antifreeze through it, rather tough to do from under the boat.
Thanks for all the advice, makes doing it for the first time much easier with everyone's knowledge.
