When I hauled out here in FL in March 2012 the yard personnel couldn't believe the condition of the prop after 21 months in the water. I coated it in Rock Hall, MD in April of 2010 with 3 or so coats of the Petit Zinc Coat. When hauled here last year it was nearly free of barnacles. The bottom paint was also very clean as well. Next haulout, I'll take a picture of the prop.
