Default engine flush?

Question: If you run your boat in salt water, should you flush after every use, even if you start it every couple of days?
Thanks in advance!!

Flush anytime possible .... I have one-way valves on mine ... I can hookup freshwater and flush while boat is in the water.

Yes, everyday, and use "Saltaway" when you flush. You can get it at West Marine.

Yes, I also use Saltaway. I also fog the motors on Sunday since they will sit all week or more.
