That's really interesting. I wonder if differing local conditions make a difference to a product's performance?

A friend put a brand new Beneteau in the water about 13 months ago with Propspeed on the running gear and the boat was taken out for it's 1st year warranty check and the prop was little different from when it went into the water a year before - clean as new.

And he has a mooring ball 100yds from mine and my prop as I said is like a mussel farm.
