4 days in salt water
Hey guys. I am heading out to a friend's waterfront cabin for 4 days. Its saltwater and we hope to do a lot of riding. It will be difficult to flush and wash my ski (2011 gti 155 ltd) everyday. Will it be a problem if it is not flushed or washed until after I get home?
It will likely be 4 or 5 days of salty ocean riding before it can be washed/flushed or even see freshwater. Will there be any problems not washed/flushed for that long?

It will be fine mate, just give it a good wash and flush as soon as you get home! Just enjoy your ski!!

Spray the metal components with a rust inhibiting oil before you get there.
Wash the whole ski inside and out when u get back.
Ride it like you stole it....

I am in the same boat. We have a boat slip at our condo. I have a bilge pump I installed prior to the trip. Just do not want to ruin my ski by leaving in the salt water tied up for 2 weeks. I can always pull it out of the water and wash and flush the engine every 5 days. I have several cans of fluid film and running water with dawn dish soap at my disposal.

Thanks. I'll give it a good wash when I get home. Thanks!
PS While I've been here on the salt water I see lots of houses and cabins with Sea-Doos moored-off from their private docks in the salt water next to or out from the docks.

All washed inside and out and a little more anti-corrosive spray applied.
