Hey guys, I'm new to the world of v drive boats and am wondering if someone could help me with a few questions. I recently purchased a 2007 Chopper CH-428, unfortunately there isn't a lot of information available on these boats except that they are out of business and were built in Madera, California. I have had it out a few times and love it. It isn't as luxurious as a top of the line Malibu, but from what I can tell is it just doesn't have the features. Rumour has it that it is even a Malibu hull, depending who you talk to....

So first off, any info that anyone has on these boats would be greatly appreciated, good or bad.

My main questions are about winterizing. The boat has a scorpion 350, and a Walter V drive in it, and was winterized two weeks ago. Then I bought it, and well there was no way I was waiting till next spring to run it. ha ha

I have had a few boats in the past, although both of them were Sea doo jet boats. One I had to run antifreeze through the system and the other was basically an oil change since it was a closed loop cooling system. So I am just wondering what steps I need to take to winterize this new one. I live in Saskatchewan, Canada, and it is going to get down to -40 Celcius soon enough. I would love to say I have a heated garage to store it in but, I don't. Although I am in the process of insulating mine to help.

Thanks for any help, I really appreciate it!
