Default Saltwater damage prevention

Here is the ever asked ?? What is the best method to clean up and prevent salt water residue in & outside of motors & bilge area??? Although this seems like a no brainer I thought I would throw it out there for any new thoughts and ideas!!!

Please send any & all to make a Florida boater sleep after running in salt.

Thanksp:

I use warm soap and water, then a salt-a-way flush/ rinse.

What model of crc is best? I pulled my boat of of the water one time in miami and the guy at the marina gave me a spray bottle of something??? I sprayed it on my drives and it made them look wet. Then, when dried it looked normal until I rubbed it and it made my fingers dirty. It was awesome!! I need this stuff!!! Is this crc????? What type of CRC?????

Any general purpose (CRC power lube / used to be called 444) lubricant will do the trick. Spray entire motor,mounts, anything metal.
