BOBBY, put an electric heater in with your engine and close the hatch. Thats what i do on the cold nights until im ready to winterize. You know its going to get a little warmer before it starts to get really cold, possible 60s next week. I love boating this time of year, alot less boats and prime docking spots. Last year we went to the parade of lights in Baltimore by boat had a great time. I was amazed at all the boats that were still in the water that time of year.
