RE: Winterize

We left our boat in South Myrtle Beach from November to mid January last year and were told to not bother with winterizing. Being from the cold northeast, we did it anyway. Just as well!!! There were a number of low teens nights during that period. Slept a lot better knowing that everything was taken care of!!
An alternative to full winterizing might be to put a small thermostatically controlled heater in the engine room, assuming that power supply is a pretty sure thing and have a dock hand check the power cord once in a while. Still need to consider any water outside of the engine room, like freshwater tanks and supply to sinks, toilets, windshield wipers, frig. etc.
