I can assure you none of my mounts look like that and frankly if you go to any of the poker runs around here nothing in ANYONE's bilge looks like that.

There are people who take care of their boats and people who neglect them regardless of salt or fresh.
I agree, the lake guys are so afraid of salt water it's almost laughable. It's an OFFSHORE boat, they are meant to be run in the ocean. It would be like if I was buying a four wheeler and complained when it had been used in the woods.....

Your funny. I wouldn't have any issues running in the ocean if I lived near one. But to be honest I would lose interest real fast and my boating habits would change. There is no fun in flushing and washing down every time you get back. F that! My time is more important to me.
I use my sisters o/b console when in Naples. Pretty simple to keep clean. The PP would be broomed and a console would replace it.

It's funny that you say that because I keep telling myself at the end of every summer that the next boat I get will be a center console that gets hosed out when I'm done with it. But, there's something about the roar of a big block I can't get away from...

Totally agree with your last sentence Adam. But I just don't have the motivation I did ten years ago. Call it lazy but I am not cut out for the salt life.

Clean up in salt water is more work than fresh but I don't think it takes any more time to flush and wipe down my boat after a run in the Gulf than it does to shovel my driveway up north after 2 inches of snow.

It took me years to come to grips with putting a perfectly good boat in saltwater but after finally buying a canal home in SW Florida my only regret is that I waited so long.

Who shovels 2" of snow? I'm tired of the rain... Why can't the 80 degree summer weather just come and stay

My apologies, I didn't see this the original post was a joke. My fault for not reading through. Now I look like the dumbass. Again, my apology Flyin-Bryn.

That's exactly what everyone I know sez about OSO who all have been heavy posters since it's inception. Seems since Facebook and Twitter has taken off folks think every statement has to be in the form of sarcasm, insults or uneducated guessing.

With reference to fresh vs salt water, the biggest destroyer on the "engine compartment" area or the guts, is MOISTURE. A tablespoon of water in the bilge over a long period of time creates humidity. Humidity is the nemesis of anything metal. Motor mounts, oil pans, starters, drive/tab pumps etc. etc. will corrode from uncontrolled MOISTURE.

So unless your boat is being swamped by huge waves, or your passengers are sunbathing on your motors after climbbing back in the boat soaking wet from the ocean waters, what type of water you operate in only mildly makes a difference.....it's the MOISTURE fellas. Of course the caveat is how well the owner babies his toys. If you're lazy or don;t give a crap, fresh water left unchecked will rust a boat to hell too.

Moral of the story....keep your bilges dry, and control the humidity when it's covered up regardless if it's under a roof or not....Prost!
