Hey guys - Reasonably new boat owner here (2nd year). Last year the boat was in dry stack all winter. This year, I've upgraded to a covered wet slip on Lake Martin. I have power on the dock, etc. I drive a Chaparral 227SSX. I was considering a bilge heater, but not sure if I realllly needed it. Lake Martin water temp won't go below 32, and the boat is an I/O. So, that means it should have conductive heating of the engine from sitting in the water all the time. I am thinking that unless the Lake had a long stretch of sub-freezing weather, the boat should be ok? Should I drain whatever I can off the block into the bilge anyway after use? Is this something I even need to worry about? Last week, water temp on Martin was 65 degrees. Thanks! Jim
Alright! So who has done it? we have decided to put wood floors in our 350! My main concern is removing the carpet and galley floor and cleaning up any glue residues. Does anybody have had experience with that? as always, all my thanks for your advises. Chris.
