I just bought this boat. I know very little about boating.I will use this boat in salt water. This is the frist time this boat and motor have been in salt water. Other than flushing the motor with fresh water is there any other Cleaning or manitance I should do? The motor is a 1989 Yamaha 70 etlg. The boat and motor are in new condtion, The unit was only used for 3 years and then stored in a garage.

Bought my '85 15' Sport from a guy who garage kept it and mostly used it in fresh water. I just rinse it thoroughly after each use in salt water, and flush the engine. Been fine for the last 6 years. Just waxed it on Sunday, and still looks beautiful, especially for a 16 year old boat. If you can't continue to garage it, buy a cover. W/o it, the sun wreaks havock on the gelcoat.
