Re: Using Bottom Paint on Brass Propeller
OK - Galvonic corrosion...so I'm a little slow on the uptake....let me get this stright...
1. No paint on the exposed SS prop shaft (just clean it and install a new zinc).
2. Special zinc based paint for the bronze prop? Is this really better than simply cleaning the bronze prop and leaving it bare?
3. And bronze thruhulls - do they need special paint too??? I'm a little cornfused.
