Seriously though, just like any boat, fresh or salt, it's all in the maintenance. Salt water requires more of it. You have to be super anal to keep a salt water boat looking good. And storing it high and dry indoors year round goes a long way towards that goal.
I pay dearly for that priveledge...but worth every penny. The fork lift drivers at my marina know my boat always goes to a work rack for a thorough wash down and flushing before it goes in the barn.
