The West Advisor articles have answered boaters' questions and provided solutions to boating problems for more than 20 years. Preparing bare wooden hull and topsides for winter storage I have just sanded all the paint off the bottom and topsides of my wooden catboat. Winter Lift Out Is there a generally accepted minimum amount of time that a 1960's classic wooden yacht should be lifted out of the water to dry out? Wood Boat Winterizing Does anyone know where I could find some informative material on how to winterize my 1962 30 foot Owens Empress Cruiser? Save money by bypassing your water heater when winterizing your fresh water systemSave time and money by bypassing your water heater when winterizing your freshwater system. Uses your existing flusher and a garden hose to winterize your outboard or sterndrive engine, even while it is on the trailer. West Marine has compiled one of the Web's most comprehensive collections of technical boating information articles.
Do-It-Yourself Winterizer allows flushing and preparation of boat engine for winter storage with just five gallons of antifreeze and your flusher.


The most common mistake made by many boaters is just incorrect custom of abandoning the outboard motor to itself, After using it during the summer season. Instead of filling your water heater with expensive antifreeze, simply isolate the heater from the rest of the system, then drain it completely of water. To avoid unpleasant surprises for the next summer season You must make a proper winter storage, the resulting, in a few steps but of fundamental importance:1.
Quick-Turn model is permanently attached to the water heater and requires only the turn of a valve to engage. Remember its not pressurized like you water hose from the house so don't expect the anti freeze to rush through the engine quickly. There was barely room to connect the bypass tubing to the valve due to tight clearances and the short length of the bypass tubing. The length of the bypass tubing kept me from orienting the valve so that the labels could be viewed when changing the valves position. A mechanical flaw like the one you describe would have resulted in a flood of complaints; this has not happened.


We hope you will contact our Customer Care Department at 1-800-262-8464 to see if we can assist you with your issue. The problem I had is the brass fitting would not screw onto the plastic shut off valve tight enough to stop it from leaking. I found a way to fix the problem by adding an additional plastic shut off valve between the original shut off valve and the brass fitting. Outboards self-drain and do not need antifreeze if stored upright; if you do use antifreeze, it will drain itself out anyway.
