Winterization - which rust inhibitor

Just about ready to winterize my outboards and wondered what you guys consider is the best product for external corrosion prevention under the covers. I like to do this in addition to internal fogging (I always use 2 stroke oil for this).

My first engine was a Suzuki 28Hp bought in 82 and sold fully working in 04, 22 years later. I coated that liberally in Waxoyl from new and never had any corrosion or electrical problems, but what a mess!

Replaced the Suzuki with a Tohatsu 30 which seemed to have a nice waxy coating under the hood from new that was not tacky. However, as I couldn't identify it, I have liberally doused the engine with WD40 for the last 5 years with no problems.

I recently sourced a cheap supply of non-aerosol Duck Oil, which I haven't seen for a few years and will probably use that this year.

Any problems with these products, or is there anything better on the market?

Excellent products, although I wouldn't be suprised if the welsh fool knew of something better, and lots cheaper!

I use Boeshield T-9 on the external parts of the motor. It sprays on like most aerosols, has a light amber color where it pools, and seems to somewhat harden a bit, so it doesn't drip all over or end up sticky (at leaast, not as much as the wax-based products.)

I doubt there's better, only cheaper that does the same job. However, at about 15 quid for the 2 cans it's hardly a major outlay.
