  1. 1. What do people do to winterize their boat? Multiple selections are ok.

    • Take it to the dealer.
    • Do it themselves.
    • I don't have to winterize because where I live we surf all year.
    • Blow the coolant system out.
    • Add antifreeze to the cooling system.
    • Heated garage, leaving no need to winterize.
    • Boat is outside.
