    New to site

    As noted, I am new to the site and wanted to say Hello from the great white north (Ottawa Canada)
    Have had my skis and 18 footer winterized and stored for at least two months now. Just noticed last week that one ski had a puddle of antifreeze and oil under it. Not much but wasn't there before. Think maybe an oil line cracked?
    Any ideas? May also be bilge from late summer.

    Hey, thanks for the welcome. Sorry for not posting the year, make and model, but I thought it came up automatically with your username.
    I have two 99' GTX RFIs and a 99' Challenger 1800.
    The one that sprung the leak was a GTX. The more I think about it, I am pretty sure it is just bilge, because as a precaution I always put some anti freeze in the bottom hull. Must have slanted trailer too high back. As mentioned, the amount was negligeable.
    Don't plan on making much use of this site during the deep freeze but definitely in spring.
    It's time for my new toy......... 2005 Yamaha Grizzly 660. Diffrent kind of fun.
    Thanks again and happy hollidays to all.
