Look at boaters world or any marina they have kits to winterize, you need to warm up the engine and run antifreeze thru the system 5-6 gal of the pink anti freeze per engine.

make sure the anti freeze runs thru the block not just the exaust. some times you will have to use a pump to prime the anti freeze going thru, you dont want to spin an impeller
