Default best spray to prevent corrosion on new outboard

Bought a new small Honda outboard which is scheduled to be delivered in a few hours.

Motor has a good reputation for being reliable but on other hand many complaints about the metal used not being designed for Marine/salt water environments. Power head bolts tend to corrode and I would like prevent that before it even starts.


Years ago we used WD40 and it seemed to work. Still good or something better?

Thanks..

WD 40 has a too low viscosity, due to being a penetrant oil as well as conservant, and as such in quite a short time it will be gone from the surfaces you intend to protect, you need something more grippy and viscous ..... IMHO

Navy and Air Force use a product developed by Boeing..... trade name Boshield

But I can tell you nothing works, keep your engine clean and rinsed of salt water.

Some people believe that if the motor is properly painted, spraying a corrosion inhibitor on it just provides a sticky surface for dust.

When I worked in a machine shop, we sprayed LPS 1 2 or 3 on blocks and heads before putting them on a storage rack, but that stuff wasn't cheap.

My policy is to keep it clean in the first place and wire brush and repaint any rusty areas every spring.

the old timers used to dump a quart of 2 cycle oil all over it. Made a mess but after you ran it for a while, it kind of "settled in" and provided a protective coating.

I like corrosionX or as previously mentioned, boeshield

For my Go Devil engine I use 1:4 mixture of Mobil 1 10W30 to WD40. Spray it on prior to every third maybe fourth trip. After I spray it on I run it. Smokes like a cheap cigar but the WD40 burns off pretty quick acting as a carrier. The Mobil 1 one settles in and provides a nice protective layer.

I used t-9 on my Susuki but after a few years it had a buildup of brown sticky goo all over it. Didn't rust but made the motor look a lot older. I had to try to wipe it all off with solvent before I sold it recently. Im gonna try a high grade waterproof silicone on my new motor.

Will the spray cause the o2 sensor(s) to go haywire?

Fluid film for sure.

Mercury also has a sealant spray to be used after you LIGHTLY wash your engine below the belt line with soap and water. Wait for it to dry and spray the sealant that forms a hard coating....

May also work with Hondas....
