I found this one in San Diego, we live in North Idaho, 2600 miles round trip. We trailered it home during a snow storm and freezing weather. I thought about draining the fresh water cooling system but was in a hurry and didn't. Temperatures were in the mid 20's to low 30's all the way home. I worried about cracking the block from the freezing. Put it in the heated garage and prayed for the best. As soon as I could, I took it out, hooked it up to a water source and started it up. Thank God it ran perfectly with no oil leaks, water leaks and no water in the oil. It finally got warm enough Saturday to go out on a lake that wasn't frozen over. It performed great except for the prop. Can't wait to get the new prop and go out again. On the way home from San Diego a man said to me that it was a little cold to be boating. I told him we were going ice fishing.
