    So I opened the engine bay on my Glastron GTS 187 this spring and found coolant had been leaking out. It looked like a mix of coolant and water, as my tarp had likely leaked a little over the winter as well. My reservoir was full when I winterized it but is almost empty now. I followed the proper method for winterization. I spoke to a BRP dealer and the manager said the connector on the reservoir tank is notorious for expanding and contracting over the winter, causing leaking. I just wanted to see if anyone else has this issue. It gets super cold here over the winter, about -35 Celsius, so what he is saying is plausible.

    My boat has seen 2 relatively mild Chicago winters. Have not experienced any leaking of the coolant.

    My scarab did that over the past winter. Replace the factory hose clamp with something better on the bottom of the coolant Reservoir. This is fairly common from my knowledge anyway.
