I don't know about your boat, but my old one would trap water. Draining it would still result in freeze damage. And $300 for some hoses and fittings?

I have to agree with Cord there.Notice the warranty doesn't say it guarantees your block or exhaust won't freeze anyway.Unless it sucks antifreeze back in all those little hoses all by itself (notlikely),its still gonna freeze.
Besides,I have used remote water drains on my boats for years and I bet I never spent more than 30 bucks on hardware.

I'd be interested to know where this product is being shipped from.

A local Marina is advertising a product just like this (might have the same name? ). Anyway, they said they have been working on it for a couple of years and finally perfected it. They are offering it on special right now. Seems like it was $799 installed. They're REALLY trying to get me to buy one.


I wonder it it's them?

Barry,

You Lake Slut! How in the hell are you doing?

I gotta tell you that I am still impressed with that 115 MPH pass you did Sunday before last.

Wish I could have made the party, but we were getting the boat ready to head to Florida this weekend for the Firefighters Poker Run in Jacksonville. Why don't you ride down with us? Leaving early Friday, hooking up with some guys in Savanna and returning Sunday.

I know that would take you away from your slut duties on Norman for a weekend though.

Are you going to do the Poker Run on Norman that Mike Nichols is putting on the 21st?

Mark
