Rafting at the World Series


I have a Saturn raft (yeah, yeah...don't need to hear anymore about the pros and cons) and want to take it to McCovey Cove for San Francisco Giants game on Wednesday night for the World Series. McCovey Cove is obviously salt water. I've never put a raft in salt water but can't imagine it's a good thing. If I rinse the boat really well after being in salt water will I do any lasting damage? My reasoning is that I bought this boat for a good time, and taking 5 of my buddies out to the world series in the raft definitely falls into that category. Am I making a mistake?

Thanks for the advice.

Inflatables are used for yacht tenders, military and SAR all over the world in salt water.

Might want to check with Saturn though. Definitely boaters on different budgets.

Salt water is not a problem, I use my Lynx in saltwater all the time. Only problem I've had was a small cut in the outer skin from a barnacle.

Watch out for the BUI and make sure you have all the safety equipment required(nav lights?). Coast Guard will be all over the place.

Go gigantes.
