Bust Off Another Thousand= BOAT.

I don't own one but have owned a ski and been around boats most of my life.

Maintain it well is all I really can say, salt is a bitch.
This stuff is awesome, I used it to flush the ski motor and wash the whole ski. It works.



It's better to have a friend with a boat than to own the boat. Unless money isn't an issue at all.

If you can keep it on a trailer at home, you can fill up at gas stations and not pay on the water gas prices, and you can clean it at home and take your time.

Then you get to fill it with water on the trailer when a hurricane comes if you have no where safe to put it.....

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

Wasn't sure if you may use it in the Gulf but no salt makes things easier for sure.

Four stroke outboards make life better in salt or fresh water.
