    Corrosion SHO

    I've just bought an FX SHO from the UK and its got some small corrosion, with what can I remove it. I will be using it in Salt water.

    That not even anything to worry about. Make sure the corrosion isnt inside. and penetrating oil and a stiff bristle brush should get that off.

    the ski is still on the way to my country, it should be ok from the inside. I know it isn't bad but still doesn't look clean

    thanks for the tip

    In addition, you'll want to remove those rubber curtains you see on the left and right side of the pump so you can clean back there in the future. Almost everyone takes them off permanently. There's 6 (or so) bolts holding them in place.

    I think the best reason to remove them is that you can clean back there better (e.g. spray down with a hose after riding in salt water). Not 100% sure what they are for, but my guess is sound suppression. You ski really won't be any louder with them removed though.
