Should the lower unit be left in the water?

O.K. I have heard different views on this so I am bringing it uo to the board.

When the air is colder than the water, should we leave outboard engines tilted down to prevent freezing.

Some peole say yes...some no. If freezing does occur, where does it happen and what gets damaged?

Sorry I can't help you guys, we keep the boat on a trailer and just drain it out every time.

One thing to consider, is that the lower units are aluminum and there for transfer heat and cold very well.
