    Salt water vacation

    I am getting ready to head to North Carolina with my GTX sc and new Spark. Beach house with boat dock. Easy access to intercostal, bay and ocean. I have been going there got the last 10 years I have left the GTX in the water for the week and never had a problem. At the end of the week I wash it down and flush it with salt away. Any suggestions or things to consider would be appreciated with the SPARK. OR GTX for that matter.

    PS I do wash down the seats and deck after every ride

    If you are going out every day don't worry about flushing it do it at the end
    But if its eazy to get a hose on the dock just flush it its only 2 mins max nothing to losse

    Thanks xdrian. I will have it out every day. I do have a hose to reach the dock. Just so I understand I can flush while in the water? I am assuming I would follow the same procedure as if I was on land. Turn engine on turn hose on. Let run for a couple of minutes thrum off hose turn off engine. Then have a beer and talk about the great day out on the water

    No point flushing in the water as the pump is going to just put more salt water through
    So waste of time only when out is going to be usefull.

    Just buy some good locks
