optimax 'saltwater' - what is special ?

Am searching for info on quite what the saltwater has that others dont. I'm am sure that it must be something to do with the corrosion proofing etc .

PLease can someone give an exact explanation of what the hell it is all about ?

Thanks

I'm sure it's been posted on before

Hi

Salt Waters are Extra Long Shaft, no other difference.

The non 'Salt Water' Optimax dissolves in salt water.

No, they will only run IN Saltwater!

Why else would it be called a Saltwater?

Mr Optimax discovered that the different specific gravity and thermal conductivity of seawater compared to freshwater effect the shape of the lower leg, the prop pitch, and the amount of cooling water required.

Also the man who makes the stickers has a cousin who works in the marketing department and promised him a bottle at x-mas if he got him some more work
