    nope , never done it, have just spent a bunch of time looking at that little blue hose........but i winterize my seadoos and you have to clamp a pile of hoses during antifreeze winterization.....and it seemed like a simple solution to a problem....almost too simple at first... and if you come up with enough ideas eventually one is going to make alot of sense....... remember my cork idea that i think has been my simplest idea to date....maybe i will show you guys how I overwinterize my boat someday

    I didn't knew the raw water pump was strong enought to pump liquid from the ground up to the freeboard... I would have been afraid of toasting the rubber impeller.

    Its a positive displacement pump so it generates vacuum.

    I almost fried an impeller trying to sip water from a bassin on the ground to the water intake... It did not come close to succeed.

    I ended up running the motor with the fake-a-lake for 15 minutes then drop the bypass hose from the pump to a tank (inside the boat..) filled with 8 gallons of -50 anti-freeze.
    I drained the 2 sides of the block + the 2 manifolds and I'm now 110% sure the thermostat did open as it took a good 5 minute to sip the 8 gallons of anti freese an the motor became realy hot because the antifreeze was at room teperature.

    That's similar to how I have always done it. I always drain a little from each side of the block to make sure the antifreeze circulated through the block.

    sometimes temperature drop to minus 30 in my part of the country, so winterizing is taken seriously
