I put my ProStar away when it's warm and take it out when it's warm. Seven month layup unfortunately.

Ugh, amazes me that you guys can man up even for that long. Seems like the water up there would never reach what I would think a reasonable temp. Spoiled here in the south. Water temp still close to 80. Air today 87. Still should be able to squeeze out a few more weeks.

I can usually get to mid October... but its sunset times and weather/wind-rain that shuts me down

The oil shelves are Wal-Mart near me were pretty empty when I stopped by this weekend. Only 1 jug of 15W-40 left.

People are scared there is going to be an oil shortage and are stocking up. My dad works with heavy equipment, and he was told by the oil distributors that they should order all the oil they need for the year (this was at the beginning of 2020).

I wrote it off at the time, but then I went to go change the oil in my truck and had a hard time finding it.

The last several years I have found the lowest price for Rotella at Home Depot.

I would have no issues winterizing a boat with whatever oil product I could find. Heck if you were really hard up you could fill the crankcase with kerosene and drain that come spring if you had to.
