If your worried

If your worried just run a long extension cord out to the boat and hook up a 100 watt light bulb in the engine compartment and close it. One little ole light bulb and your compartment will stay above freezing. Ed

Here in Texas it really doesn't get cold enough for long enough to winterize. When I had a boat I bought two of those flameless propane camp heaters. My boat was stored two miles from me so I would go and fire them up when the forecast was below 30* or so...

That is great advice. We did this all the time in Minnesota to extend the boat season in the fall/winter.
