    Default lavey 24 nu era

    Hey Greg

    Quick question looking at a 2002 lavey 24 nu era with a 496 ho bravo one x and a24 4 blade. The boat has been in the ocean besides the trailer, on the boat itself what can be damaged in the motor or accessories like exhaust water pump etc.from the salt. Will these things be expensive to repair and replace. If so what would in you best est be on the costfor the items that could be damaged.

    Thanks

    Default 496

    The 496 has a closed cooling system so the internals of the engine shuould be fine, The exhaust takes all of the raw water so the exhaust manifolds should be looked at but they are also been designed with materials that are salt resistant. Wter pumps and impellers are changed just through routine maintainance. Does this boat come with any service records or atleast any records on what shop has performed the services to this point. Have a shop check it out before the purchase and be sure you take the boat with the owner to the lake and run the boat.

    Not sure if he has the past records. Sceptical about the salt issues though and yes most definetly I would water test it. Or no purchase. Do you offer an inspection of what needs to be inspected like maybe a marine survey to make sure all is well. What would that cost me for you to do this service if you provide this type of work

    Again thanks for your continued technical assistance for this industry

    Default lavey in Ocean

    Greg

    Went on line and saw some salt water flush products. If I were to buy the lavey and everthing was ok except for a little mild corrosion could I use that product to save the internal parts from wroughting away. Also is there a spray on metal treatment for the trailer that can stop any furthur damage or corrosion to the trailer


    Thanks
