Dumb Tender outboard motor question (winterizing)

I do winterize mine with the fogging oil.
Haven't done as FF suggested with the antifreeze but I do fresh water flush with the ears and a hose.** I run it in gear and rev it a bit to get the water moving.
* Just be sure the prop can't catch anything.
I also spray the inside of the powerhead with WD-40 or similar. Keeps any moisture at bay and the rust down.
Wash the outside .
Grease the various points although that could be done later
