    Who has the Cleanest/Nastiest Bilge?

    I have lived on the water my entire life and seen Saltwater damage. I've learned from my dad to always wash off and flush anything that touches the water. I will even do it when I'm in fresh water. I have seen some really corroded engine bays, and some you can eat off of. Post some pictures of what you have or have seen!

    This is my ride, Bought with 19 Hours and has 118 now.

    Looks good to me.

    Never cleaned out the bilge. Ours are only ridden in fresh water but last time I had the seats off I noticed one of them had a little minor corrosion and rust in a few places at about 300 hrs. So I bought some XPS spray and hit em with that.

    OCD traits? It's called general maintenance. I flush engine, Then next morning spray down. Nothing OCD about it. Unless you have 15k+ to Just spend at random and not care about it.

    10-20min before and after each ride Can save you Thousands later down the road.

    Once I'm done riding, I run fresh water through it. Since I bought at 15hours, The bilge was spotless. So once the motor cools down after flushing, Usually 5+ Hours later, I spray engine down with CRC 656. And leave seats off for a bit. Basically that's it. And normally inspect the motor before a long ride, Just to make sure nothing is loose or noticeable leaks.

    It's peace of mind, I don't feel like being towed in, or suffer a nasty spill at 70+.

    Looks great, but is that a slight tear developing in your large blue silicone hose? Right next to the clamp?

    Yes.... I hate the design of that. May just make an aluminum pipe and be done with it. Or get a new hose and keep clamp edge from rubbing.

    Any ideas or products that work better?
