    Ok so on my way home from hunting yeaterday my outboard got covered in salt from the road i didnt relize it was so bad till today and it was way to cold to wash off with the hose.
    Now do you think it will cause any harm to the engine at all im gonna run it in the morning since im heading out tommorow and it will be rinsed off a good bit but exterior,wires etc will be okay?

    Id be more worried about the road salts effect on the vehicle pulling the boat. Unless the motor didn't have a cowl on it, you'll be fine.

    I drove back from Dorchester on Saturday night, I got home and the truck, trailer and boat were/are incased in ice and salt. Of course I didn't cover the boat down there so it filled with snow.
    Power washer is coming out on Weds or Thurs when it hits 64 degrees.

    My bigger concern is that I didn't lower the motor after my Thursday afternoon hunt.
