Normally drain the exhaust manifolds and heat exchanger before Thanksgiving. Looks like we skipped Fall and went straight into winter this year. Do you think we've had a hard freeze yet ? I need to go out and winterize my boat this weekend . Worried that its dipped well below frezing already in Portland Area ?

You should be okay. It usually needs to stay cold for quite some time. I don't think that has happened yet.

Be sure to stick a wire up the drain to make sure you knock any rust particles or other blockage out of the manifold so all the water can drain.

I put mine to bed last weekend. I'd rather work on it when the weather lets me than wait until its pounding freezing rain, snow, whatever. I have the alpha 1. You're still ok for now. Make sure you put the outdrive to the down position when you park it for the season. Take your battery inside too. Don't wait too long. The last few winters have made us complacent.
