Re: barnacles on prop, shaft

I've also had luck in the past few years with Pettit Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier - but not this year.
Had to dive the prop this past weekend and it was pretty well fouled.
Didn't take too long to scrape off the critters (must be a hardy bunch this season).
A few years ago, before using the Pettit Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier I also tried the vaseline trick which worked fairly well.
Maybe both next year?
