Even if the boat is kept in your driveway, consider taking the outdrive off and storing it in your garage or basement for the winter. Changing the lower unit oil will help protect your boat from worn out lube over the winter. (Photo: John Tiger) Outboards. Consult your engine's owner's manual or service manual before you begin.
