Winterizing is really not a problem. However he first issue is to avoid any product containing "ethanol". If your engines and generator are closed or raw cooling all you have to do is, first drain the water, then start and pump in the pink goop until it flows
The boats a hit and so good to hang on...even the dogs love it!!!
Had a little problem starting our engines but called seatow and they towed us from Bristol RI south to Newport on a beautiful day. The boat is really nice and we are so excited spending the day on her.
I'm going to attempt to post pic's but they post upside down but I think I have figured a way to prevent that. After the motor ride we had few branches and leaves on the flying bridge but so grateful for the Casey haulers doing a great job moving our boat.
Does anyone know if there are drains from the shaft stuffing box area into the central bilge where the pumps operate. I have had some problems with the packing leaking and I noticed that the water stays in the area around both shafts but does not drain into the center bilge where it will be pumped out. I have checked as far as I can see and reach to see if anything is clogged but cannot find anything.

I would love to know if anyone has , know where to get ,or wants to sell log style 307-350 end caps for the front of the exhaust manifolds log style.
If I can't find these, can I replace my 73 25 catalina with center risers without hitting the hatch.
Any help is greatly appreciated
