Flushing Outboard Motors

Despite water restrictions, you are allowed to flush your outboard motor when returning from a boating trip.

Not much water is needed if you do it properly and it’s a matter of safety, as it flushes the salt from the cooling system in your motor, which goes a long way toward preventing corrosion and the mechanical disaster that can follow a cooling system failure.

This video shows how to do it if you are not sure of the procedure.
