    Winterization question...

    I leave my 21 PX and 09 PX in one of those tarp tents from harbor freight, I also obviously keep the covers on the skis After fogging both engines I decided to keep the seats in the house and not put the 21 PX deck back on the ski. Wouldn't it make sense to leave the deck off for more air flow to alleviate any condensation in the engine bay through out the winter? I'm anal in keeping the skis clean and lube'd up as it kills me to leave the skis outside in the freezing cold for 4 months...

    Did you at least flush the lines out and treat the fuel ?? It sounds like you are in my neck of the woods also .

    Oh yes, full tank with stabilizer, flushed out with earth friendly coolant, batteries on tenders and fogged with new plugs…. I know the worst thing to do is keep your skis seat on all summer because it causes a lot of condensation in the engine bay which causes rust and bad for electrical connections. Anyways just thought if I’m removing the the deck on the 21 PX I might as well keep it off all winter to keep the engine bay open with air under the cover.

    Sounds like you covered all your bases , I would had put the new plugs in the spring after it had burned up the fogging oil but no worries if itís in a shed leave the seat loose air will circulate or put a moisture box in the engine bay .

    As long as there is no possible way that water can get in the hull and freeze. You should be good unless your tarp leaks.

    If you're leaving them outside I would put some rodent repellent in the bilge. Mice love to chew on plastic and rubber (think electrical wiring).

    I usually leave some moth balls in there (in a container)
