    My 2016 Mojo doesn't have a strainer for the ballast intakes, so you are probably good.

    As I was searching around my boat last weekend I was looking for a water strainer for the ballast and couldnít find it. May it be hiding behind a panel?

    Lastly I found all my ballast pumps and they are mounted horizontally. Can I still push air the rough them to expel any water that may be left in the lines?

    Advice is always appreciated.

    Each year raptor is a little different, there should be a crossover hose with a brass fitting, be sure to disconnect and let drain.

    You might also have a transmission drain hose with a blue plug. My 2018 had one, but my 2021 does not.

    There isnít a strainer for the ballast.

    Heater is on the closed loop cooling system.

    Ballast pumps will drain automatically....they are higher than the bags and in floor tank. I remove my rear bags just to be safe. I also disconnect the hose for my bow bag once I use the pumps to drain as much as possible.

    2016
    2 blue plugs
    V-drive plug directly under the prop coupler
    Heat exchanger plug behind the oil filter
    Open the raw water pump cover - leave open until spring and change impeller then
    Manifold crossover hose OR brass plugs - one on the bottom of each exhaust manifold close to the v-drive (my 2015 has plugs not a hose)

    Heater loop is closed loop don't need to worry about it.
    Fuel stabilizer and fill the tank to avoid condensation

    I leave the center drain open after every trip to the lake and all winter. Allows any liquid that drains to exit the hull.

    Last year it took about 35 minutes to winterize. The other 2.5hrs were fluids/filter and spark plugs.

    Default Raptor Winterization

    Awesome. Thanks.

    My manifold cross over hose has a blue plug.
    That and the blue plug on the raw water/transmission cooler is blue.

    2 plugs. One on vdrive and one on heat exchanger.

    So I only have 2 blue plugs and 2 threaded plugs.

    Am I missing another blue plug? My owners manual shows 4 drain points. If this is the case, it is the easiest winterization I have had in 10 years!!!

    Your diagram....
    A is a blue plug
    B is a metal plug/anode combo
    C is a blue plug OR separate brass plugs OR a garden hose connection you open

    V-drive is a large 1" socket brass plug/anode combo

    Again, I remove the cover on my raw water pump.
    Done. You can use an air compressor to lightly blow out water but they all drain pretty good.

    Ok. Well the Craz is all winterized. I made a spreadsheet and check list to follow for this new to me process but I feel like it went pretty good.

    Fuel stabilizer.
    Full tank of premium
    New Wix oil filter
    5W-30 Mobil 1 full synthetic.
    Removed vdrive plug/anode
    Removed removed blue manifold plug
    Removed heat exchanger blue plug
    Removed transmission cooler plug/anode
    Removed impeller housing plate
    Removed batteries and put on battery tenders.
    Removed rear bags
    Blew air through ballast hoses
    Removed both boat drain plugs.

    All in about 3 hours but removing plugs was 30 minutes.

    If I can find a way to share the checklist Iíll post it.

    Now the hard part is not stressing over a Canadian winter that I did it right!!!

    Can someone let me know the part number for the raw water impeller. I have 2 new ones that were for the LSV. Looks the same but just wondering.

    Thanks.
