    Can I....?

    I was wondering if I can pour water into the engine compartment to wash away the salt water?

    sure...just make sure you open the bilge hole in the back and tip the ski back to get all of the water out or you will have MOLD....

    Absoutely. You should spray it out after every ride in salt water. Tilt the ski up and let it drain and leave the seat off and hood up.

    Absolutely! just try and not saturate the engine itself and electricl.
    like totally mentioned, raise the bow, open the transom plugs squirt away. If you have a air compressor, try and blow some of the water off the engine and components, or reverse your shop vac. then towel dry and put to bed! ...PR...

    i drench the living heck out of my engine compartment... i prefer not to use a hose nozzle and create hard water pressure... i let the hose free flow and just completely drench everything and anything. it's water, it won't hurt anything so long as nothing gets in the air intake... which is a near impossibility with the stock intake.

    hose it down, tilt the ski up, drain the hull, and mist some WD-40 or bombarder lube all over EVERYTHING in the engine compartment to disipate water and protect against corrosion.

    Also, if you are doing this alot, keep and eye on your electrical connections for corrosion. They can use some extra TLC. I can't remember if they still use the dielectric grease on them to protect them anymore. I don't ride salt (1000 mile drive ) so not the expert there.
