Well guys it's getting to be that time of year again. My season is coming to a close with fall activities looming it's time to get the boat winterized and put into storage. I've been doing a lot of reading on winterizing and am a little confused. Last year I stabilized the fuel, changed the oil/filter, fuel filter and lower unit oil as well as opened the blue drain valves and ran antifreeze through the engine. This is my first I/O boat as I have winterized outboards before and always fogged the carbs. With the Merc 5.0L MPI engines i'm seeing people mixing up a "Cocktail" and putting it in the fuel filter and letting that "fog" the engine. Is the correct procedure? Does anyone have a good mixture for a "Cocktail" i've never done that in the past and am a little worried I maybe hurting my boat by not doing this step in the winterizing process. Thanks in advance!!!
I have a 2001 Signature with twin Mercruiser 5.0L EFI engines. I have the Alpha 1 Gen 2 outdrives. I was wondering if anyone with the same set up could tell me what propellers they are running and what their results are as far as getting on plane and speed. Thank you in advance
