    -15F here right now with a -34 Wind Chill!! Dreaming of picking up our boat in April. At least we can tell the kids about it in 18 days!

    David,

    Do you have a heater or shower in the boat? I have been told these are the first things to go and need a 4 to 8 hour hard freeze. The engine block needs a much longer hard freeze. If you have someone that can get to your boat I would have them just bump the engine a few times to get the water out of the impeller, blow out the heater or shower and pull the engine block plugs. Then suck all the water out of the bottom of the boat. Opening up these things will give some room in the engine that if the remaining water does freeze it has open space air to expand into and not push out on the heater core or engine block.

    I forgot to say if you do not have anyone that can get there and put a lamp in the boat or do the above steps do not worry since there is nothing that you can do and what happens happens. Hope everything ends up alright for you.
