Default First boat need tips please

Hi guys

I bought my first boat today, the ProBoat Miss Geico 36, can't wait
I'll be running in salt water, i recently moved house and i'm right near the lake on the coast. I'll be running it down a waterway where the river meets it. It's calm, quiet, sheltered from wind, and it's a wide channel. Perfect
Anyway, i watched a video on flushing out the water cooling tubes, spaying WD40 down said tubes, rinse the boat, and spray with something??? for the electrics. I dunno

What do i need to get started. Grease for the driveshaft/flex tube thing. What about extra waterproofing for the electrics? what about the lipos?
Any advice would be appreciated. Just want to get a sort of "starter kit" ordered for necessary after run maintenance
