I saw on a different forum a guy took two Rubbermaid storage containers, cut the bottom 3/4 off one, then stacked them together for a cover. He then cut out holes for intake and exhaust.

This will be my fifth season running my Honda 2000 on Mille Lacs. I lust leave it on the tailgate of my truck. It has been covered with snow, sat is -20 temps and just keeps running. My wheel house is in use every weekend of fishable ice on Mille Lacs and I've never had a problem leaving it in the elements.

One note, I do change the oil every 80 hours. During the winter this ends up being about twice per month.

I built a wood box for it and cut exhaust holes in back. Made it nice but I have never used it yet. Maybe on day if I am on the lake and it snows heavy.

I have the honda 1000 but I made a extended tank gas line to run off my 6 gallon boat gas tank. I've got a 40hp 4 stroke and don't get out much in the summer and when I do it's usually in a buddy's boat so it's nice to use up that gas before it goes bad. It's also nice to run all weekend without refueling, the 1000 only has a .6 gallon tank.

A good friend of mine that I work with took his Honda in to get it tuned up for the season. The dealer is installing cold weather kit which consist of device that warms up the air intake. I don't know how this exactly works but I guess it helps prevent it from freezing up.
