"They recommend I run it in a bucket of water after using it to keep it from getting corroded again. Problem is, it is not very easy to remove from my boat while its in the marina. I guess I will have to figure it all out because I don't want this to ever happen again."

If you have garden hose water at the slip, consider using the Tohatsu flushing adapter Part # 336600070M, $7.07. To use it, you unscrew a plug on the motor near the LU upper lube plug, screw in the adapter, connect to the garden hose, and let 'er rip for a few minutes. Now, if it's unreasonable to get to that section of the motor while at the slip, that's not much of an option.
