I have a hammock swing on my boat. Do I need to do anything special to the swing because of the sea salt?

Hammock Swings-Seaside Maintenance

If you have a hammock swing installed in an area near sea water or salt spray, you may need to clean your hammock more often than someone who lives near a freshwater lake or river. Ocean salt can, over time, corrode and wear out the connecting cords or ropes that hold the hammock in place. Hammock swings installed on boats should be given even closer attention, as the constant up-close exposure will definitely affect the lifespan of your hammock swing without proper care.
