Re: barnacles on prop, shaft

I had a hard time getting decent speed under power this weekend. I already knew the bottom was getting fouled but now it seems to have hit the prop big time too. I used the Pettit spray back in April. With divers not allowed at my marina, I'll just be slow for another few weeks until getting hauled out just before our big trip in August.
