rubble Posted January 9, 2020 Report Share Posted January 9, 2020 I'm aware of the need to always wash things down after being exposed to salt and normally do a full blown wash down of the boat (soap and power wash) when leaving FL but this year I was pushed for time and just sprayed the boat down really good along with spraying out the bilge and rigging box (which is open to the bilge) when we got out of the water. I also ran through several heavy rain storms after the wash down. Do I need follow up with an intense soap and power wash here in KY? I didn't open up the live well or the release well supplies and I plugged the drains so they didn't get any saltwater in the system other than a little water getting in the live well thru the overflow scupper in the splash well. Should I run fresh water through all of th plumbing systems? All gear was sprayed down and the trailer was sprayed down after launching and loading. Have flushed the engine a couple of times hooking up to the hose connect. Haven't run the motor with the muffs or in fresh water. Also haven't run the Trolling motor. Just seeing how intense I need to get with the boat. Haven't had the time or conditions to run the boat in fresh water or do a solid wash. Plan on doing that as soon as I can get free on a decent day but if I need to *** it up and do it on a nasty day I'll jump on it ASAP.
