Is that necessary - the boat has never gone longer than 6 days without use...

As I understand it the risk is that trapped water expands and breaks the casting.

So the time limit would be however long the water takes to freeze – which could be less than 6 days ?

might be better to drop the leg to ensure no water in there so you dont get any problems, i think the engines might prefer being left upright rather than at an angle but that is must my view

According to the forecast minimum temperature is 5 deg tonight so should not freeze - i expect the majority of snow to have melted by tomorrow. but why will any water be in the engine - when i recover the boat - i flushing the engine first on the slip for 5 mins with muffs - i then take a further 10 mins washing down the rest of the boat/trailer/hubs etc... surely during those 10 mins with the engine still vertical any water will have drained. I prefer to store like this as the engine hood is protected from the elements.
