    Me personally I pull my ICer and store it indoors,then i fill the rest of the cooling system and exhaust with RV antifreeze,Pull the injectors and spray/coat the valves and cylinders with fogging oil,pull the Scer and take the tension off the clutches by backing off the locking nut,stabil the gas,make sure all the water is out of the bottom of the hull,then i like to spray the entire engine down with WD-40,charge the battery up OR put a battery tender on it.Also put a rag in the exhaust port to keep mice or critters from making home in your ski...clean the outside and you should be good...

    Fog it, clean it, Stabil in the gas, thenI put a 60 watt bulb down in the hull and cover it with a couple old qulilts. The garage rarely gets below freezing though.

    when you guys are talking about putting anti-freeze in your ski are you using the fire extinguisher method as described in the how to section?
