Winterization Checklist for 2004 Centurion Enzo SV230 

 

Prior to this boat, I had a direct drive. I winterized each year on my own.

Could anyone share their winterization checklists for a V-Drive? Also any information for draining/winterizing ballast.

I have been reading some posts about draining the heater as well, but I wasn't sure if my 2004 model had that.

 

Any information would great! 

Thanks

Someone just posted a detailed write up on the FaceBook group. Winterize the engine just like you would on the Direct drive. IF you have a heater blow the water out of it, add some anti-freeze. Add some anti-freeze to the ballast bags and then hit empty on the pump for a bit to put anti-freeze in the pump. Hard tank? use the "in" pump to pull anti-freeze into the tank. 

That is all if you live somewhere it gets real cold for a long time. 

For me in TX and my boat stays in my insulated shop. I pull the plugs to the engine to let water out of it. Remove the ballast strainer and empty the water out of it. and Change oils. I don't have a in boat heater and I don't worry about my ballast pumps, bags or tanks. It doesn't get real cold and when I'm out in the shop I turn on a heater, so rarely does the shop ever get cold.

I have an 04. How do I tell if it has a heater?

Do you heater hoses up by the driver and observers seat? Usually the boats that had a heater installed had pull out hoses or outlets up by the driver and observer. 131613802.jpg.3f3c0b3747b268fa9a5daa9a30297483.jpg

See the black circles under the observer seat and by the walkthru? Heater outlets. Just a quick example.

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
