Weather is suppose to be high 60s low 70s this weekend. I really want to take my boat out and try my new drysuit, the only problem is the low temperature for Monday is going to be in the low 20s. I keep my boat in a metal shed and worry that it will freeze up if I take it out. I don't have any electricity to put a heat lamp in. Should i take my boat out? If I do what can I do to prevent, it from freezing?

I have been thinking the same thing here in GA. I am about to buy a dry suit thanks to the wonderful advice on this website but still a little nervous it will get cold again and stay cold.

Is I take the drain plugs out of the engine and disconnect the hoses, will this prevent it?2010 Moomba LSV

Remove the J hose at your water pump and blow out the heater lines if you have them.1998 Mobius

What's more important? The drysuit working or the motor working? Save it for a day or two! The water isn't going to warm up as fast as the air is. If you have no means to put heat of some sort under the motor box to keep the temp above freezing you're playing with fire.
Of course you could also run 15 gallons of antifreeze through your motor via a fake lake too if you want?2004 Ski Nautique 196 LE
