I went through a similar situation during my first winterizing. In order to save some money, I decided that I would winterize the engines myself, and I'm glad I did. First thing I learned was that all the threaded drain plugs, both the lower two in the block and all the ones in the exhaust manifolds...

Good looking boat, hope she finds a good home.
Hold on there !! You MUST use the marine specific ballast. The automotive version is not sealed and thus will cause an engine room fire. I think NAPA carries both auto and boat ballasts for close to the same price, but you MUST use the marine version.
Same here. My 37' had steel rudders, which ended up rotting away to the point of destroying the cutlass bearings and the packing glands. If the packing is still sealing good, you might be ok, but....If you have it on dry land, you might want to drop them out and look at the shafts. I know it's a pai...

I'm sure they may have, probably a pretty rare option. There is a Sportsman down on the Ohio River that was special built with twin 426 Max Wedge engines. Rumor has it that it flies. Believe it was built for an executive at Marinette.

Also note that some tachs have, depending on brand, have settings for 4, 6 and 8 cylinders, that may not have been set correctly when installed, and some have a tuning screw in the back that you can fine tune with a pocket screwdriver.
