    Protection of the investment

    I know this has been covered in several other threads, but we are always trying new things and keen to hear what others are doing.

    We ride in saltwater almost 100%, (it's sping here so while you guys are thinking winterisation, we are jsut getting in to it!)

    I am sure the Bombadier lube is very good, but also very expensive. WD40 and CRC get mixed reviews.

    Have started using a product called Lannox for salt protection inside engine compartment and outisde round pump etc, plus on the trailer. Apparently it is same as Innox but uses lanolin so less chance of degradation of rubber etc. Comes in a 1/2 gallon pack with a little spray bottle to refill. So far seems excellent, leaves a waxy residue that appears to give good protection.

    We also use salt way on the flush etc.

    Any one else use this stuff?

    you're doing great.... i use salt away also... been using WD-40 on my skis all the time tho... you won't cause damage to the rubber parts in any length of time in which the ski will even still be around.

    i usually use bombardier lube every 2 weeks for the nice base coating, and Wd-40 all the days inbetween the 2 week intervals

    here's what my motor looks like after 100 hours of use in 100% salt water

    Thanks Shippy, sure does look pretty. Mine looks about the same but only has 12 hours! At the moment between work, family comitments and tides I am only getting out about every two weeks, so it gets the works every time. Cheers RJ
