I/O first start up

I run non-toxic antifreeze thru engine after each usage the first couple of trips fishing in early season for peace-of-mind.  It is a three-thousand dollar mistake if you don't spend the $15.00 on antifreeze.  Since I run a trolling motor, my gas cost is only around $15.00 so the added cost and time of re-winterizing is a small price to pay.

I have a Trophy with an I/O and last year I put her in on 3/17. There were days when I went fishing and had frost on the windshield. I was told as long as the water temp was 40 or above that that would help keep the water from freezing and my boat has a doghouse that insulates the motor as well, didn't have a problem last year

Ya but I was also out fishing on 3/17 and was in a Tee shirt for the 2nd half of the day.  That isn't the case this year.  Where I live we are still dipping into the teens so its your call.  I would another week or 2.
