    Put some dawn dish soup in the hull and spray it around. It does a good job.

    Flushing the motor for about five minute is good, rinse the hull and everything down, dont really need to rinse the inside unless saltwater got in there, I ride in the ocean 95 percent of the time.... Have no problem yet...

    salt away works great too.
    I have not tried it yet(thanks for sample) but have heard Fluid Film works great before you hit the water.

    I always spray my engines down with freshwater after riding in salt. Even though I really don't get much water at all inside the ski from riding, I know that some gets in and that salt will start corroding things. I rinse the entire insides of my skis after a day of riding and the engines still look very good. I've seen some much newer skis that look really bad from their owners not removing saltwater after riding. Really bad!
