many thanks ME ME & Diesel
I leave the engine trimmed down as i was under the impression that the water drains out after flushing the fact that you use antifreeze to flush through MeMe now gives me doubts as to wether this is so!
and yes I like being a soft southern ba... the souther the warmer the better as far as im concerned but i do own and once wore a big coat .(with mittens)

Just get your drysuit on and get out there you bunch of southern softies! Then you don't need to winterise!

Find a friendly sailing club with a winter series and offer to do safety duty.

Oh and Wales won by three tries to one by the way - when did England last cross the line.....

Don't forget...

wheel clamp, engine lock and if you're as mad as me, take a wheel off and put the axle on bricks as having spent all that dosh on making sure it'll start next season, you want it to still be there !!!!

Winterize

Glad you brought some fuel treatment it saves running carbs dry, and will keep fuel stable if already mixed.

Stick it in the lawn mower, then if you break down half way down the garden you won't have to call the RNLI.
Not really worth risking it in something that is your only means of propulsion.
