using salt away on/in svho
im still kinda new to this salt away stuff.. never used it before this ski so i looked up a video..
now i have two questions..
1. are we alloud to flush the motor with this salt away in the SVHO?
2. are you really supposed to be spraying down the inside of the hull like he is? hes kinda full blasting it right on the motor and all the electrical.
for a while i had hand mixed my salt away and have been spraying it with a spray bottle on the motor and around the motor, then taking a spray bottle of water and rinsing it off, finally flushing the motor with straight water to get the motor warm enough to evaporate the salt away from the block..

Definitely want to lightly spray the engine bay. I really only spray mine if I see signs that water got in. Good to spray some protectant prior as to protect wiring, etc. from intrusion.

i hose the engine every time i go to the ocean regardless if water got in it or not , just because the miss gets stuck everywhere , i use degreaser and water let it dry from one day to another then spray the fuck out with wd40 . never had any electrical issues or corrosion problems.
flush the engine with salt away for a good long 5 to 10 minutes, i maybe over doing this but hey better to pay 100 for a new bottle of salt away than 4k for a engine.

Yeah I always spray down with yamalube.. Do you spray the engine bay, rinse it off, then what? Tilt the water out of the hull and let it air dry with the seats off before spraying protectant?

on the engine i use the no wake button to accelerate the engine while flushing with salt away.it will only go to 1000 rpms.

Reving the engine, getting it hot isnt going to help you removing salt from the motor. Flush the motor then send some saltaway through and let it sit in there til you go out next time. just flushing it through isnt going to help you. It doesnt dissolve instantly it needs to sit. Best to do, run the saltaway with a full bottle when you see it foaming outside shut the hose of then shut the motor off. Thats going to prevent salt from accumulating in your motor. Or flush it with a full cup then fill cup again at full strength and do as i previously suggested.

I understand, more than likely if your flushing after a run its hot and it will be open. we have driven back 2 hrs on the trailer and pulled the seat off and that motor is still really hot. Just want to clarify for others that were reading, they dont need to start revving the heck out of it and if its on the hose for a couple of minutes I'm sure it will be pop as well. I dont like revving these motors without any kind of load on them. I see countless videos of guys revving the crap out of them and they wonder why the clutches go.

Sorry to "hijack" your thread, but i would just like to know is it highly recommended to use salt away to flush the engine after running in salt water? I've only used my sho in salt a handful of times but only ever run it on the hose for 20mins...

you think im new?
just to clarified , the last thing i do after washing drying the entire machine [including engine ] is to flush the engine with salt away, meaning that it will be pretty cold. so for me i have to warm up again , and the no wake speed up the process.
