Saltwater preventive measures
I am planning on taking my ski to beach and was wondering what measures I could do to protect it from the saltwater.
I am aware of salt terminator, after the fact.
My question is what kind of measures could I do to protect it before I put it in the ocean (inside and out)?
Any info would be appericated.

Before putting it in the ocean, make sure you sprayed the whole engine compartment down, front battery compartment, and jet pump area with Bombardier lube....any metal parts for that matter.
After you take it out, wash everything inside and out, flush, and spray bomb lube again so its ready for the next time you go out. You can use a product called Salt-away when flushing.

I've found that silicone spray works very well and only costs $1.47 a can at walmart. Let the engine cool off, wash it down with fresh water, let it dry over night at least, spray every accessable thing inside the ski, leave the seats off and let everything air out over night, reapply once in a while in the same fashion. I've found that Bombardier lube leaves a terrible buildup after a while and is very expensive( at least here, $13 a can). The silicone spray is very water repellent and is also very good for rubber seals and vinyl such as hood seals, seats, and electrical connectors.
