Winterising my Rib

Just wintersed my Rib, cleaned it , flushed and drained the engine, disconnected and removed the battery, greased joints.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT I NEED TO DO ???

Is your Evinrude an Etec? If so, the fogging routine is apparently quite simple.

Mollers can advise better, as he has read the manual...

Rinse the powerhead off in fresh water, let it dry & spray with corrosion guard or silicone spray, not WD40 or similar.
