winter running of outboards

A question for all those of who do not winterise your outboards. How often do you run them through out the winter season? one a week, once every two weeks, monthly?

Try to run mine up to operating temperature in a large bin every fortnight. Unless I can get her out that is!

Should've added we plan to keep Merlin in the water () so can easily run the engine on a reg. basis.
