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.

Currently "Between Boats" but wanting to stay current (no pun intended).
