I remember seeing an article in a sailing magazine years ago that described how one owner rigged a floatation collar around a lidded bucket, filled it with fresh water, and tied the floating pool to his saltwater mooring.

Before leaving the boat, he'd pull the bucket up to his stern, lower the outboard motor into it to run a couple of seconds in fresh water, then hoist the motor.
