I am new to the group although I have been reading some posts. So I do have a question. I run a sailpro 6hp O/B motor
in a well on my boat
. It stays in the water
and it seems the local sea life likes it,,,, alot,,,,, I need to scrap it down some tomorrow am before taking the 34 mile journey (Boston to Gloucester) to its winter home. but,, is there anything inside I need to clean? I will pull the motor
, replace lower lube, engine oil
, clean it down, but if this life grew outside,, could it have grown inside the tubes of the water
pathways also????? should I be worried,, or should I take this apart and clean it completely.
thanks,,,, sailing a 1967 Islander
bahama 24 that I rebuilt and fixed up.
