Recommended Posts

Hi all kind of a newbie and need some help

I have a 19.5 foot sea nymph with a brand new 90hp etc

I have never been out before april before so I am not sure what is involved with fishing in the cold weather as far as taking care of the boat... I always run anti freeze threw it when I close up shop in September.... What happens if I take it out in Feb if it is like a 40 degree day? Will I have to run Anti freeze threw it again when I get home while it sits till next trip? Wont it freeze up during the return trip home while on the tailor?

just need some general info

I use my 19' Lund with a 09' 150 HO Etec on it all year long. Why are you putting antifreeze in a motor it's not in the owners manual and you could be voiding your warranty ???? The winterizing function is pretty simple and it does it all by it's self ( with the right commands )

The block drains itself the minute you pull it from the water. Lower the motor then store it. Read the manual on winter or cold weather use

After you lower the motor to drain the hub, start the motor for no longer than a few seconds to clear any water from the impeller pump. Raise motor up and you are done. ONLY A FEW SECONDS!
