Is 5 mins long enough?
Flush Muffs would be a better idea.
Most engines let the flushed water out of the propeller, or al least out of an outlet that is under water. This means that the water in your barrel gets full of salt as well, and whilst this is better than nothing, there will still be a fair ammount of salt kicking around in comparison to flushing it with a hosepipe.
