i was under the impression that all you had to do for an outboard was stand it up straight and change the gear oil. now i;m hearing the injectors (optimax) need some oil treatment ? if i added say a quart of 2cycle to the full 60 gal gas tank (for a rich mix) as well as stabilizer wouldn't that do it ? :confused: do you still need to fog a 2 cycle ?

i winterized my dads old outboard for about 5 years before he went to an inboard boat.....all i ever did was fog the motor till it choked and died.....i was told all outboard are self draining so putting any antifreeze is a waste....5yrs later and no problems with his motor....just change out the plugs in the spring and run it........oh i also did add stabil to a full tank of gas and ran it to make sure the treated gas was going through the carbs. :)

Well? What happened to lunch?

We had a couple fronts move through and the Gulf has been 4-6 for almost a week. I am going to Chicago (brrrr) this week for a few days then hopefully be back for some fishing.
We just made reservations at the Key Largo Marriot resort for Thanksgiving. Going to spend 3 days snorkeling and fishing.
