    The engine water jacket is self draining. If you can, tip the front of the trailer way up, and while it is up there, flex the water hoses to allow as much water as possible to drain out.

    I shift the hull back on the bunks to make the trailer nose light, then latch the winch strap to hold it in place. Don't break the licence plate or trailer lights...

    Take the hull drain plugs out too

    If you can't get the engine running to blow out the exhaust, you may want to remove one of the big hoses to the water box, and siphon out excess water. A little water in the water box isn't a problem.

    Some guys go to the trouble of pumping anti-freeze through the system. It can be messy...

    If you go to that trouble, use the pink propylene glycol stuff (sold for RVs and household drain freeze protection), not the automotive anti-freeze.

    And do not use the inexpensive alcohol based anti-freeze, no matter what color it is.

    And don't fill up the exhaust manifold interior with any fluid. Clamp that water injection hose before hand.
