Flushing Engine after being in salt water

Recommended Posts

Hello Owners,

I just took my newly purchased 2004 215ssi on its maiden voyage.  
Just realized I did not flush the engine with fresh water.  I plan on going out again next week. 
Do you see a problem waiting a week?

Most of these boaters on the forum are lake boaters. So SALT to them is a very bad word! 


I have a Sig 290 that has been in salt for 8 years now. It goes in the water in late May and Comes out in mid October. I don't flush! But I do have a closed system. 

I can't say any of my problems have been from salt water.
