To start there are no longer any barnacles in the Carolina Beach Basin, I have them ALL on my wheels.

Does anyone know of a anti foul coating or paint that will not wear off props? I have a diver on my boat every other month. I was out of the water for a while the bottom and drive were clean. Dropped back in August 10. Between then and now ran her once. Went to go out yesterday (diver is scheduled for this weekend), the boat would not move lifted the drive and there they were. Every barnacle in the basin.

Any way I paint the wheels with Interlux (Trilux 33) put on very thick (not the spray, but with a brush) it doesn't last it just wears off. Thinking about these new coatings, but have read they do not last beyond a year. The material will cost $379.00 The diver costs me about $300.00 a year, and I get more benefit from the diver. So I think that will not be feasible.

I started using Hydro-coat Eco. Which works very well on my bottom. Been on for a year and a half and it looks great. I can use it on my drive also which I am thinking about also. But it is an ablative paint so it will also wear off the wheels in short order.

Does anyone know of a paint that will adhere to the props better than Trilux? I will keep using the diver because it's great to get a hull inspection to make sure intakes and transducers are clean and make sure the hull and drive is clean.

Sorry for the long winded read.

Ive used "prop speed" for several years and its ok but only for about 12 to 18 months. I still use a diver monthly.

I have been told, but have not tried it, that regular rustoleum cold galvanizing spray works well by several people but have never tried it. Obviously a lot cheaper than the "high tech" stuff out there that doesn't seem to work all that good anyway.

Supposedly its important to prep the props and gear really good to make sure it sticks good and put 3 to 4 coats on it. Do a search online and you will be surprised how many people swear by it..

Thank you Steve. Do you spray the Rustoleum over the painted props? Or do you use it in place of anti fouling paint?

From what I understand its used in place of anti fouling paint. I will PM my divers phone number to you. I believe he has used it himself.

The Rustoleum spray galvanizing is sprayed (rattle can) on bare metals. Pettit makes the same stuff but it's 2X $

Ive heard the same about the Rustoleum before from some commercial guys in Virginia Beach. I have had the need to use that yet.
