Oh no, so Ohio didn't get hit by Ike this season, and thousands of Ohioians lose power? Sitting in the dark, getting ready to winterize your boat.....he he!

Hi All:
I planned to bring it to a local marina here in NJ for the winter. Should I expect the marina service to do everything mentioned here and also in Wally's post?

THANKS

My boat typically sits about three months (I try to get it out at least once in Dec or Jan. Do you think it's necessary to drain the blocks or fog the engines for this relatively short winter? I live in Phoenix so freezing isn't an issue. I subscribe to all the other advice.

No more than it cost, I would do it. Pay me now or pay me later.

Is everyone still filling their tanks for the winter? With the quality of fuel, I've not been putting as much in. Is this the correct thing to do?
