Your motor will be fine, it's your trailer and electrics that may be effected negatively..

Yeah its bad for the boat and the trailer. There's no doubt about that. But there aren't many things in life better than a good day saltwater fishing.

This boat is for sale and I am trying to get more information for a potential buyer who was asking about the effects on this boat/motor/trailer in fresh water vs. salt water. As far as I know, this boat has spent it entire life in fresh water but I know for a fact that this new motor has never seen anything but fresh water. I am an automotive technician by trade and has seen firsthand the effects 'salty' conditions can produce, be it from road salt or a life near coastal areas. I don't have any experience boating in salt water and frankly, don't have any desire to either. Where the buyer decides to float or plant this boat after the cash has exchanged hands is up to them. Thanks for all the informative replies.
