Well I'll be. Learn something new every day. I was always afraid to try anything like that. Good on you!

I guess I need to check YouTube for winterizing a 205V ...

I talked to my friend that has the BU at lake LBJ, he came up over the weekend and took the boat back to San Antonio and will drop off at the BU dealer tomorrow to have it checked out.
its easy plug on port side, knock sensor on starboard... if you haven't done it forever then be careful the rust can be a bugger... take off the impeller cover, take out impeller, take off bottom port side 2" hose and disconnect the garden hose in the front... drive to storage... put it all back together in the spring... I use anti seize on the plug and knock sensor (just a dab)

I have a 205V:
1) Port side engine block drain (Knock Sensor)
2) Starboard side engine block drain
3) Hose connection in front/port of motor
4) Radiator hose, starboard/back of motor under tranny cooler

Get a small wire brush, the kind that comes with metal straws to rod out your block drains. I have pictures of #!-#4 if you'd like.

I got rid of the drain petcocks for that reason just use brass hex head plugs so I can pull em wiggle a screw driver in the hole and be done with it.

I'm headed over to the lake this weekend, let me get some better pictures. Looking at the ones I have, they aren't that great.
