Flushing out engine question etc
Just got a new boat this week with a Yamaha 50 outboard engine. Starting off with a few puttering river trips since I'm a total novice & live some way inland. Estuaries will probably have to wait for next year.
- Presume I dont need to flush the engine through when its just had river water?
- Also thinking now of keeping it in the water (in the River marina at Tewkesbury) over the winter, as I like river trips even in the cold. Would the engine be okay with that and is it still okay to keep the prop down submerged all the time?
Thanks in advance, Ivan
