The salt away is awesome. I bought the inline hose attachment with the reservoir and i'll rinse the whole outside of the boat and trailer, and then run some through the flush hook ups on my motors.

Hap, Sorry for not responding earlier. I use Salt Away on everything. Here is a breakdown of what I do. I run the motors on fresh water for about 5 minutes, then run Salt Away through the motors until I get foam on the ground, then stop the motors. I wash the boat down with soap and water, then rinse the boat, fishing rods, down riggers, outside of the motors, the bilge, and the hull (inside and out) with Salt Away. I even rinse off the truck tires and the trailer with Salt Away. I do this after each use in salt water. A little extra work but WELL worth it.

Salt Away is a great option...... but as a scuba diver, boat owner, dog owner and truck owner, my opinion is that HOT fresh water is the key to cutting salt from any equipment. I may totally wash and clean the boat twice a year. Otherwise when I get home I just totally rinse the boat, trailer, brakes, truck and gear with HOT water and then put it to bed. This easy maintenance is one of the main reasons that I went from a plastic boat to a metal boat.

No rubbing issues. I have mine set with about 2" of free space on each side once loaded and centered.
