I have a newer Honda 8hp 4stroke on my Pearson 26 and I don't know if I need to winterize or not. I am located in east TN on the TN river, and the river never freezes, but the outside temperature does get bellow freezing quite often. Also the way it is mounted I have no way to get it out of the water without it being tilted at an angle. Do I need to winterize it or should it be fine? Thanks in Advance.
By winterize do you mean ensure there is no water anywhere in the motor? If so yes, or leave it in the water, I'm not a proponent of leaving it in the water, but if you do, it won't freeze and bust anything.
