So with the soon purchase of my new wake boat, Im not going to lie I am scared to death to put it in the water I normally ride in which is 15-20min away from my house due to it being brakish. The salinity is anywhere from 9ppt - 12ppt where I normally ride. Though I am meticulous about maintenance. The whole boat/trailer/interior/exterior get washed each and every use. The engine is flushed for 20minutes with freshwater and saltaway. The whole boat and trailer then get sprayed down with salt-away and then the whole boat is dried.

The nearest freshwater lake to me is 1hour doorstep to boat ramp. I just dont know how realistic it is to drive 2 hours (back and fourth) every saturday and sunday. That hour drive also reduces my riding time because I normally try and do a dusk session on monday and friday after work, but no way ill be able to make that hapen if I have an 2 hour round trip drive.

Hearing some of the horror stories of salt, im really getting steered away from a new boat.
