    Flushing after saltwater use??

    Just got back from the beach, washed the ski and hooked the hose up to it and flushed it! Now how about the engine can I just hose it all down and once it dries lubricate??

    Yes you can "wash the engine" after it cools down but try not to soak the eletcronics like the ECU etc... Blow it dry using compressed air. The next day spray lubricant like C656..

    its all pretty water proof, dont stress when you wash off the salt water!
    i usually sit their with the hose on mist for a couple of minutes just hosing off the engine and inside the hull, the more fresh water you spray the better !

    I have never had a problem washing the complete ski. I use a pressure washer to rinse everything after spraying Salt Terminator. After the ski dries I use BRP spray oil (expensive) and the ski's I own still look showroom.
