I have a 24-foot stern drive (I/O) that I keep on a trailer at my house. Lows for the coming nights at least are forecast to be in the 20s. I've never de-winterized this early in the season before but the weather this weekend looks too good for me to pass up for boating.
I'm looking for opinions on whether or not it's a bad idea to de-winterized this early. What I would do is keep light bulbs on in the bilge during the night (while on my trailer, not in the water) and I think that would keep temps warm enough that nothing will freeze and break.
