    Default Cold weather strikes again

    After our Thanksgiving ride day I put my boat in my friends garage while he was down in Tampa at dealer meeting last week. I get a call on Sunday that the garage door was open. Temps were in teens and 20s during the day and dipping down to single digits at night. The freezing temps are gone and we put the boat in the water today and sure enough have water in the oil. Sick to my stomach. Guess I'm gonna be replacing an engine that has 100hrs on it with a new one.

    Oh man, that is so sad!!! I don't even know what to say except I am so sorry. Will you rebuild the engine or drop a new one in? If so where will get a new engine? just curious. Sorry again.

    Had a thought - see if you can be the guy that tests out the new Ford-based motor.

    Wow, that's crazy. You'd think a person could catch a break and get away with a night of cold temps. Wonder what busted. What the heck? Geeeez!!

    Even though in a garage It looks like the boat was in 20deg temps for about 2.5 days. The boat is at Crosstimbers now and we'll get intouch with Indmar check on options and to get a new one put in. Im not opposed to going the 6.2L Ford just not sure I can swing it $$$ since insurance is not an option.
