I feel you are far from alone on this issue - then there are those of us with boats on the other side of the world that we still cannot get to.
My thoughts - as long as you used plenty of biocide/stabiliser in the diesel
(I always overdose), it should be adequate.
Anything you have put water through should be flushed with antifreeze/disinfectant, and drained. With the holding tank
, add plenty more antifreeze then if you can't drain (not even into a disposable 20 litre container?).
is a question I am pondering for ourselves (4JH4TCE winterised in 2019 including oil change
and running for a minute or so flushing
antifreeze through the raw water
intake) as it will not be until 2023 that we can escape 'cage Australia' to return to our boat. That will make it four winters before we return in the following Spring.
thought is that with the impellor still in there (yes - forgot ....), there could be issues asking someone to run the engine for me (boat is on hard-stand), but then there's the fact I didn't fog
the inlet (never have for just one winter - who would have guessed .....).
