Default Winter!

Garage is not large enough and boat will sit under tarp - canopy until put into unheated storage barn for the winter. I have reviewed a lot of winterization threads.

Hi Dave,

I just lower my motor down vertical and keep all the live well drains open. This will be winter 10 with no problems. Latest I fished was Lake Erie in December, and the earliest was Lake Michigan in March.

So far so good.
