    If the ski is in a heated garage just stabilize the fuel and change the oil, I know your going to go to the garage once a month and start it anyway

    Stabil Marine and start it once a month. If you can drain the waterbox or run a hose up the exhaust and vac it out.

    i always recommend draining muffler and rotating your motor to TDC...both work hand it hand.

    Stuff rags in your intake grate and water outlet, and also one in the exhaust exit port, drain ALL the fuel with a pump and change the oil before putting away. I would fog it as well. Spray motor with light coat of wd40 and stash her away with the seat cracked and disconnect the battery.

    When you store your battery, make sure its not sitting on the bare cement or dirt. It will ground out and slowly discharge, put it on the charger and leave it disconnected.

    Winterizing a four-stroke:
    1) change spark plugs (use anti-sieze)
    2) change oil
    3) change filter
    4) add fuel stabilizer/ fill tank
    5) lube everything (steering rods, intermediate housing, etc
    6) fog the engine
    7) wash, wax, etc

    Battery will 'not' ground out if kept on the ground...
