Default How cold has it been in florida last 3 weeks?

Has it been cold enough to freeze a boat in pensacola the last two to three weeks? Or in Tallahassee ? Looking at a boat to buy that has been in both places. I know a cold snap went through, but was it cold enough to freeze a Volvo block? Are Volvo's closed cooling like merc's? 8.1?

Thanks Derek

Thanks, I did find out that it was plenty cold to freeze a motor. I found 20 for a low in pensacola and 13 for a low in tallahassee.

Not cold enough to freeze any engine here in Tallahassee... the temp might drop for a bit, but un-exposed areas, like engine compartments are pretty safe here. Which boat are you looking at?

Ya I went on a cruise from jan 3 - jan 10. When we came back into port in FTL we had left the patio door to our room cracked the night before and we were freezing when we woke up. It was in the low 30's.

Hey donz what's the about?? Miami is like 500 miles from Tallahassee and maybe 700 from Pensacola.... Maybe cause it didn't freeze there it didn't anywhere.. LOL

MidOcean, Was it cold for an hour or 8? I bought a Cobalt that we think is froze broke. I will know tomm for sure. Thanks for the help, I hope your right and it is OK
