Engine up or Engine down.


Recommended Posts


Going to leave  the boat in the water for 4 days up at Forster.Do you leave the engine down so its full of water and stoping the air getting in or do you lift it up so the water drains out but air gets in to help start the corrosion.

When I've Island hopped and camped in QLD I leave the engine down. I figure if I'm not travelling far around the islands trimming up and down and starting is just taking more out of my single battery. Before you all think I'm bonkers with a single I do carry one of those small high powered jump starters that I can assure you cranks over the boat. It's even been used on several 4x4's and far big outboards than mine.
