I HAVE A 2004 HO CRUISER, 99% OF THE TIME I RIDE IN SALT WATER, FOLLOWING THE FLUSHING RECOMMENDATION NEVER GOING TO HAVE A PROBLEM. !!!

2003 and all the paint pealed on the engine. And white corosion on the aluminum rivets that hold the bungie hold downs. Rotted in less than 1.5 years i washed and flushed every time out and wd 40 every where crc marine and more. Just did'nt hold up. Yamaha seems to hold up better in salt to my experence. If you ride in fresh water. Its up to you what you like.sea doo, yamaha,kawasaki, all make good machines.

you will never have trouble with Japanese made skiis, as long as you do the correct flushing, I have had a Seadoo, Yamaha, and now Kawi and all have been good , But I do favor the Japanese made products for longevity in salt water
( as long as you look after them)
If you abuse/ neglect any of them they canl all turn in to a piece of junk, and let you down

Yamaha is the most reliable of all the ski manufacturers in my experience.

Yamaha Watercraft are very reliable.
Yamaha did alot of research in developing their marine engines.
As with anything mechanical, taking preventative care/maintenance measures for protecting your craft also plays a factor. Proper flushing, routine maintenance, removal of any water in the hull, winterizing, corrosion protection also must me performed in order to maintain the longevity of any craft.
Please take the time to read the owners manual of your PWC and How-To section of this forum for any tips, hints, advice.
