Hi guys. I know this has been asked a million times, but I figured I would ask again. We are due to be moving very soon from a coastal river area that has fresh/brackish water. I have flushed the boat thoroughly after each use with a set of muffs. Our new home has a boat lift directly on the Intracoastal Waterway and that is where our boat will be used exclusively. I have already contacted the local Sea Ray dealer about installing a connection in the engine compartment to allow flushing the boat after each use with a hose since I won't be able to do it with muffs. Our lift has water available for this. My plan would be to thoroughly flush the engine and wash the boat down after each use. Realistically, how long would I be looking to run the boat without changing manifold, risers, elbows, etc.? Any work I had done would be done by the local dealer. Should I be looking at any other modifications? Or should I just swap the boat for something like a 240 SDX OB? I would hate to take the depreciation hit on my 230 (and we LOVE this boat!), but if I'm looking at some potentially major expense in a few years that might help rationalize it for. Anyways, thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any replies.
