    White looking powder near battery

    After some wot runs on two occasions I have seen this white substance in like a 1ft square near the battery, pump hump, and rear exhaust outlet. I don't know where or what it is. I need to get a picture next time. It looks like it gets sprayed from somewhere. No water in the hull either. Anyone else get this?

    Taste it? Is it salty?

    Won't kill you. But if it is salty then you are getting some spray from between the seats. If not, then I don't know what the hell it could be.

    Ur old school so if you don't know...nobody else around here will.

    Dried battery acid?

    What kind of battery are you using?

    Does it have a vent nipple with a clear tube attached, or a vent nipple with no vent tube?

    That's what I was thinking as well. Oem battery with vent tube hooked up. I didn't see any near the tube is what makes me think.

    Cracked battery around the top rim, or battery fluid getting past one of the cap seals?
