maybe i am wrong but its best to have the engine vertical in winter storage. as any water trapped in the leg will freeze and blow a hole through the casings. only ali after all.
i bought an engine years ago which had the gear box casing with a hole in it where water was s itting and frozed up

i could be wrong though, over to the more experianced peeps

Thanks for the advice..... but..... WINTER STORAGE - Is that a joke

Just because I wont be donning a wetsuit and going under the water anymore till the sunny side of easter doesnt mean the boat will be getting any rest - I plan to be out on sunday - may make it a trip to Fowey (So come on guys, who fancies some coastal touring)

Not to mention my plans for a Scillies trip during the week after Christmas (weather permitting) just my self and a couple of "adventurous" mates are going to nip over to St Marys for a pint and lunch

good on ya roy, good to see you are out in all weathers. unlike some softies down your neck of the woods like mollers..dig dig, haha

must admit i have kept my engine upright and never have any issues, however when i kept it on the water for 2 weeks uptil last weekend it was tilted like yours and it coughed and spluttered when starting which it doesnt normally do.

will send you a pic when i have fitted your stereo cover on the boat

Looks like those pikeys have been back and put a coat of emulsion over your drive Roy. I'm only 12 miles away (£40 taxi ride) and not a speck of snow. As for Softies? I'll be hammerin' down a mountain in the Dolamites whils't Roy and his mates are wet and freezin' Scillonian chasing!

What? The old flat bottomed Scillonian? Is she still running to St Mary's? Blimey. Used to run the Barn Club in Eastern Green back in the early '70's and used to know several of the crew. They would get right huffy if emmetts referred to her as a "Ferry". As haughtily as anyone with a tractor seat shaped arse could, they'd inevitably reply "Are you possibly referring to the Royal Mail Ship Scillonian"?

Great days.....

but not brave enough to get in it like Roy was!!!!
