Re: Using Bottom Paint on Brass Propeller
Sheesh MaineSail, thanks for adding one more thing to my spring to-do list.
I've got the prop off right now to do the cutlass bearing. It was painted with Micron after the application of a primer coat, though I'm not sure what primer the yard used.
I'll take the paint off using a brass wire wheel as the old paint is knicked up and check the condition of the prop.
Is it OK to re-coat with a primer-paint combo as Lancelot is doing or better to just use the Petit barrier coat?
