I am sure Dean means by "running dry", to disconnect the fuel hose and run the motor until it stops before taking the boat out of water. This empties most of the fuel from the carb, leaving it less likely to gunk from sitting.
I always employed that procedure with my small trolling motors, though have never done it with the large ones.
