The first time it drops below freezing won't crack your block will it? What's the most days below freezing you would go without having your boat winterized?

Chris do not fall for it. I just bought my first inboard, but have been around boats all my life. I have seen blocks crack the first winter freeze at 31 degrees. I always hear people say oh it will be alright. To me its not worth the risk of cracking a block. If that happens BIG $$$$$

get a magnetic engine block heater and keep boat in the garage, and STILL drain the water out. it takes about 10 minutes to do it all, or do like me and move south.

Used to live in Michigan. Saw ed blocks after the first very minor freeze. Cast iron gets cold real quick. Keep a magnetic heater on it until your season is over then fill it with anti-freeze and then completely drain it...Don't wait too long!!!
