hey all, I have a slip coming up shortly and my name on a longer wait list for the next size up. The boat I'm looking at is around a foot over the max LOA for the slip allowance when the engines are up. The rep at the marina said since I'm on the next size up waiting list, maybe for a year or so try using outboard motor bags so they're not sitting in water until the next slip comes available.

Are those just motor flush bags or are there bags now for that purpose? My googling hasn't lead me to anything but motor flush bags and I'd imagine rain and other debris would still collect and foul things up.

thanks!

I had the same issue. Email this guy, he's out of San Diego: [email protected]

Basically add just a touch of chlorine and that'll stop the growth but not kill the lower unit. It's better for them to be out of water, but this will buy you a year no prob. Cheers.
