Is there a certain way to clean a Ski? I've heard from some old school people that you should just rinse everything with water including the engine compartment and just wd40 the whole engine, the intake grate and the whole area where the prop is so the seals won't seize. Is this right. The only place to ride here is in the ocean (salt water). Of course I need to flush the engine as well. Thanks for all your input.

wash and dry everything and a good coat of wax is always good .and always WD 40 the engine . Oh and make sure you flush the motor too .

Jesus crimany....don't spray WD-40 all over. My god man.
That is unless you don't care about your plastic and rubber....it's 75% solvent! Great cleaner and lousy protectant.
Get yourself some Fluid Film - no solvent and best you'll ever get...last's a long time, will not evaporate and does not wash off readily. Not to mention it's non toxic/non hazardous so better for the environment...particularly on a ski or boat in direct contact with water.
Do a search on it. If you've never used it, PM "Dano50"....he's the mfg rep and will send you a free sample to try out without obligation. You will not get junk mail after that....it's simply a form of advertising. Seeings believing right? They'll bet the cost of the shipping and product that you'll love it.
Keep away from your SC belt....it will make it slip.

I would not worry about one dousing. It's not that aggressive. More polluting if anything. Dish soap or simple green + warm water then dry

Here is a link to a detailed discussion from last summer. Very good detail and explanation:

Fluid Film is the bomb! I got a few cans from ES and I've squirted it on everything around my house except my wife.......
And she's next
