    Default Two cold nights comin..............So,

    Should I be worried about my engine block for the next two night or should it be ok???? No water in or running out of drive. So should be empty. Asking because my boat is stored outdoors.

    Your drive will still have water in it. The waterpump in most is in the top of the lower unit. I have seen them freeze and crack the upper housing close to the Gimbel. If you can run it on the hose and shut it off. Then put the hose in a bucket of anti-freeze higher then the motor and run it till anti-freeze come out and is in the whole system. I usually run abought 6 gallons total. That is 3 gallons mixed 50/50. Good luck. Some of us will need it.

    Boat is covered, put a drop light under the bow and one under the engine hatch, put the batteries on charge. The jet doesn't need anything.

    AB1, lower the drive to remove water trapped in the exhaust area of the bearing carrier.
