Winterization Process/What is this?

I'll be winterizing my 2004 Mastercraft X10 boat myself this year and I have a quick question as to what exactly this valve and hose runs to. Looks like it runs to the front of the boat... Just want to make sure I'm not missing anything in the winterization process.

Thanks in advance!

Yep, heater supply hose. Be sure you get the water blown out of the heater and push some antifreeze through it.

The one on my 07 looked just like that and supposedly was order from the factory with the option. I always thought it looked out of place but I also worked on an 06 X2 that had the same valve.

One other observation, don't know if you removed it but it looks like the hose clamp is missing from the hose on the valve. If so I'd make sure one gets installed on that line.

Also check to see where the return line from the heater attaches to the system. You may need to remove that also. Mine is plumbed into the raw water intake at the bottom of the bilge. Sometimes they come back into the return side of the water pump.

Also your Cylinder #4 injector looks cockeyed. Maybe it's OK that way?

Same here and I've seen several of these.
