o.k. I've been boating all my life, but I'm not a mechanic, and live on the West Coast. What the heck does "pickle" the motor mean??

Anytime an engine is submerged in water, when it is drained and the air gets to it the internal parts that are supposed to be Shiney raw metal immediately start to rust because there isn't any oil left to protect it. .... so pickling is the process of draining the water completely, flushing the engine a few times with kerosine, pulling the sprak plugs coating the cylinder walls with oil replacing the oil with new, then running the engine for a bit and then changing the oil again.
You do this until no signs of water are present in the oil.
