    I have seen many different posts about the way to flush out the system after being in salt water. One says water first and other says engine first. I believe one is for one type of motor and the other is for Mercury, which I have. I did mine today and turned water on first and then started engine. I only did it for about 45 seconds because of all the white smoke. Is that normal? My owner's manual says water first also. How long should I run the engine?

    I'm not familiar with your boat, hopefully some smarter guys will chime in. But if you have carbon seals (for pump shafts) - I would be very careful not to run the engines on a hose for longer than a few seconds.
