If you leave it in the water, idling, you don't need to winterize it.

There are a couple of good threads that you will find with complete lists and variations for different engine and drive combos.

Most important part is to get the water out of everywhere, hoses, manifolds, jackets, drives.

Go to Walmart. Buy the "pink stuff". You will find it in the auto dept. It will say "Boat and RV" winterizing, or something like that.

Somehow run two to three gallons of the "pink stuff" through each engine. I use the fresh water flush-outs, but you have may to use your "earmuffs".

Good luck.
