    Spray Lube

    Bombardier makes a Spray Can lube for this purpose, spray the
    motor in advance of any running in salt water is their recommendation.

    I would keep an eye on moving parts like steering, throttle cable, etc.
    If you see oxidation and/or rust then rinse and lubricate with a salt/water dispersant like the Bombardier product.

    I run in salt water also, but this seems to be a pretty sealed up unit,
    not that worried about it. Of course you definitely want to flush
    it out with fresh water after a salt water run and wash the outside
    including your trailer.

    I wouldn't use WD40, gets kind of messy. For many years that was
    the recommendation.

    When you flush your engine after running in salt water, you may want to use a product like "Salt Away". It is supposed to get rid of all the salt. Great to use on your trailer also.

    CRC 656......way cheaper than Bomb lube. I do however use Bomb. lube for fogging my 2 stroke. THe CRC comes in large bottles and can be poured into a spray bottle. Lasts much longer than a can of Bomb. lube. A decent coat will also help prevent salt from sticking to some surfaces.

    Saltaway is also supposedly good. I use it, others think it's a waste of $. No way to prove it either way, so I use it.

    Instead of spending a fortune on Salt-a -way, just use some dishwasher non suds detergent mixed with water. It works the same. Salt-a-way is just a detergent confirmed by lab tests done by a club member.
