I bought a KVD PT TOUR spinning reel made by quantum and would like to know what you guys think about my using it for a half day of fishing in the Atlantic Ocean. I carry fresh water in the truck to rinse off my gear after fishing.

Complete breakdown as in take off spool and handle, line, etc...or take every screw out and turn the reel into 100 pieces, clean and reassemble?

^ very important. Reel magic is good as well. I'll wipe them down with reel magic after the cold water rinse. A drop of reel oil in each handle bearing, and an occasional drop of bearing oil in the reel bearings (1 drop only) will keep it performing.
