“We have found SALT-AWAY to be a brilliant product and would highly recommend it to anyone in the boating industry, large or small.”
We started Exclusive Boat Haulage 2 years ago when we purpose built our hydraulic commercial boat haul trailer. We invested alot of money in our trailer so we needed to ensure everything on it was well maintained so it would endure the regular trips into the salt water.
We installed a spray jet system into each wheel that is fed from a 45L water tank to which 250ml of SALT-AWAY has been added so everytime we launch or retrieve a boat into the tide the solution is run through the brake mechanisms.
2 months ago we removed the backing plates off the wheels and we were very pleased to find everything was still like new.
We have found SALT-AWAY to be a brilliant product and would highly recommend it to anyone in the boating industry, large or small. Its a small cost that can save you big bucks later on.

I recently purchased a small boat with a 2001 15hp Honda four stroke that appeared to be in good condition but on my first outing the tell tale kept stopping. I poked the outlet with a cord from a whipper snipper & out came what looked like salt crystals, this happened on my next two outings on numerous occasions. I became worried that the engine may overheat so I began looking for a solution & came across Salt away. I used it twice in a tub as instructed over two days & then once more before my next fishing trip, the tell tale worked perfectly & I can now go fishing in complete confidence that my problems have been overcome by your fabulous product, many thanks.

“What a product! I have since used Salt-Away several times with the same results…”
Although I have been boating for nearly 41 years, I have never used a product quite like Salt-Away.
Another forum member recommended it and as usual (with new products), I was skeptical.
I called the manufacturer and spoke with Lenora Meister who is the owner. Lenora guided me through the process spanning from manufacturing, lab testing, how the product interacts with the salt, development & shipment and finally, what it can do for my boat.
She then answered every single question that I had. I explained to Lenora that others on the forum have used other household products such as vinegar and Zep Orange with excellent results for salt removal. Lenora then explained that SaltAway not only removes the salt but it removes other things like fish blood and other dirt components. Now, I was really skeptical.
Charter Boat Owner/Operater: “My mechanics at Bay Marine Tauranga said this was one of the cleanest salt free engines they had seen… The guys now also use Salt-Away in their motors.”
Hi folks my name is Colin Tecofsky. I am the owner/operator of a charter boat in Tauranga. I just wanted to let you know that I first saw your product Salt-Away being demonstrated at the Tauranga boat show in 2005 and after talking to the people and watching the demonstrations on the stand I purchased some to try. As stated I have a small alloy boat in charter and it is powered by Twin Mercury out boards.
Washing boats at any time is a pain in the arse but I am constantly amazed at how effective Salt- Away is, no need to change product just flush your engine as per instructions, clip on the wand and wash your trailer and boat and you’re finished. Now there is a couple of reasons I am letting you know how happy I am with this product.
1. My boat is serviced every 100 hours and at 400 hrs I got the mechanics at Bay Marine Tauranga to check the water ways in one engine to see what salt build up was present not something that you would usually do at a service but since they needed to replace a rubber grommet at the top of the drive shaft it meant the power head had to be lifted.
Long story short, they were amazed at the condition of the water way channels it still had the original factory coating they spray on when they assemble the engines. They asked me how I cleaned the motors and I told them I ran the motors with fresh water for around 2-3min and then ran Salt away through them for 30-40 seconds, that’s it. They both commented that this was one of the cleanest salt free engines they had seen. I am pleased to tell you that as a result of that the guys now also use Salt away in their motors.
2. I was recently told about a product that has a similar name to your product and was lead to believe it was better and cheaper than Salt-Away so like anyone now days price has a big part to play when buying especially when you use it most days the amount adds up. Well I actually bought a 1 litre pack to try. The person I dealt with told me you use it the same way as Salt-Away. Well what a disappointment. Now to be fair, I used it as per the instructions and what I noticed the next day was salt crystals on the motors and also where water drips from the holes above the cavitation plates?? Next day same thing.
OK, I wondered if I was letting it get to diluted and so when I had flushed the engines. I refilled the mixer and sprayed the boat with a mixer full. Same result, salt crystals dried all over the boat. I persevered until I had used the 1 litre container then went back and mentioned this to the people concerned and was told it was ONLY engine flush and I needed to use a different form of their product to wash the boat and trailer.
Cheaper it may be, I don’t care if it doesn’t get salt off the boat. I don’t see how it can from inside the engines. IMHO this product is no way as good or as effective as Salt-Away in removing salt build up from my boat and motors.
I haven’t been asked or prompted in any way to write this I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with Salt-Away.
“it is refreshing to find a company that provides excellent service in such a timely manner…”
Our director of Assets/Equipment has been very impressed with the results from the use of this product and is strongly recommending it to everyone.
As our clubrooms and storage areas face directly onto the beach front, and a large proportion of our membership reside beach front, it has been an excellent environment in which to show the excellent outcomes from using Salt Away.

“Rarely does a product come along that has me singing its praises… I wouldn’t be without it…”
Rarely does a product come along that has me singing its praises with religious fervour, but since being introduced to Salt-Away over 18 months ago, I have to say I wouldn’t be without it. I am not known for fastidiousness when it comes to cleaning the boat and fishing gear, but with the help of Salt-Away I have the operation down to a very slick and stress-less procedure.
I have a 6.5m Osprey lock-up Hard Top, which is a bit of behemoth to clean so I have taken to using a water-blaster to speed up the operation and very effectively I might add. I put the Salt-Away in the water-blaster applicator and surprisingly; it is very economical on usage. I find it excellent at cleaning and protecting the galvanized trailer, and the water-blaster certainly ensures I get into every nook and cranny. Salt-Away also cleans and protect the brake system, the winch and the towing vehicle.
I buy the large 3.8litre container, which seems a little expensive at first, but Salt-Away is so concentrated it goes an extremely long way � there are a lot of washes per bottle.

“stuff works so well the mechanic at the local whaler dealer are convinced I run my boat in fresh water…”
I have been using Salt-Away for about 10 years. The stuff works so well the mechanic at the local Whaler dealer is convinced I run my boat in fresh water. I don�t!
Recently I bought a second boat, a Carolina Kit Boat, a great do-it-yourself project requiring total assembly. After getting the thing done I decided to add just one more pair of screws on the Bimini top slide assembly. The boat was hanging on davits by this time. Upon leaning over to put the nut on the bolt the boat leaned just enough to allow the cordless drill to slide from one side of the back deck to the other and into 10 feet of SALT WATER.
Thought that’s the end of my brand new drill but wanting the drill bit a few hours later I dove down and retrieved the drill & bit. Being a curious guy I decided to take the drill apart and it didn’t look too bad so I soaked it in a pail full of Salt-Away. An hour later I dried it off with compressed air and a couple hours of Florida sunshine. Putting on a new battery I was shocked that the drill worked as good as ever!
It’s been a week now and the drill is still ticking! Do you think they used Salt-Away on all those old Timex commercials?

“it is refreshing to find a company that provides excellent service in such a timely manner…”
It was nice to talk with you about my O ring needs last week. Your friendliness and attention to service was excellent. I appreciate your providing O rings and replacing the Mixing Unit. They arrived on time for the Tavares Boat Club trip from Daytona to St. Augustine via Palm Coast Fl.
I have used and liked the product for many years and have always been pleased. Just started washing the boat with it and it really works. It also saves a lot of time and effort. I have always used it to flush the motor. We first bought it in Seattle many years ago. West Marine in Daytona also received the quart you ordered for me. Thanks for that also.
Several of our fellow members either purchased Salt-Away or will. I was happy to tell them about the product.
Thanks again, it is refreshing to find a company that provides such excellent service in such a timely manor and is so friendly. Best of luck for continued success.
