I have a friend that swears by spraying down under the cowling with CLR after every trip. It does look pretty under there does anyone else do this? Is this a good practice? Thanks.

I would NOT use CLR on my engine under any circumstances.

I use CorrosionX about 5x a year. A little goes a long way. Under the cowling looks brand new.

The Yamalube spray silicone protectant works well also. The Merc racing guys I know use CRC 5-56 with great results as well.

CRC 6-56 is good stuff. Have been using it religiously for years. Not as thick as some of the others. Spray down under cowling a few times a year.

Corrosion X,,...was a time when purchased by the case, great stuff, would also spray my trim tabs, prop and trim/tilt at end of day. I do like Corrosion Block on electric, although they are both non conductive / safe.
Quick note, spray detailer is a great easy option for the outside of cowling paint.

Agree with that 100%

I'm thinking he must have misunderstood his friend. His friend may have said CRC and he heard CLR or something like that.

I've used Yamaha silicone spray for years after every trip. Motor looks new. I used to use regular CRC but it always looked too oily.
