If your operating in freezing conditions at night, we usually run the Moter out of the water for a minuet to drain it. Freezing the water jacket can crack it. Also frozen impeller so not going to get water and overheat.

It can be a pita, but in real cold weather I take small outboards inside over night.

Many thanks for the thoughtful ideas you guys came up with. Really appreciate it.


Good job! Now go find another one. Then you will have two. I won't explain why you should have two.

I think you will like the Zuke . I bought a new 15 hp short shaft in 2015 . I have run it hard in these swamps and rivers without any issues . And it sips the gas .
Nothing against Yami`s at all , but this little Zuke has impressed me .

Dirt, I try to trap beavers for a profit. I'm already doing good if my haul of flat tails this season pays for all the breakdowns. Didn't mention my boat trailer lost bearings on one side a week ago. LOL
My back up motor as it stands is a 9.8 Sea King. That's what i ran the river with yesterday afternoon. Purty slow go upstream with a boat full of beaver.

Didn't know you had backup. Never mind. I have a land boat (trailer) for my ocean boat. Bearing went out last year and the brakes started on fire. Those are hard to put out. Almost burned up the whole works . Too bad, it would probably would have been cheaper than continuing to own the boat and land boat.
