proposing to paint prop

I got tired of scrapping shellfish off of my prop and shaft. I painted it. I paint my brass rudders and the stainless cav plates too. Those pesky critters cause alot more loss of effeciency than any amount of paint does. My props are 30 years old and there still fine. The guy that had the boat before me painted them too. How is it that constant and often scraping with steel wool and sharp scrapers arn''t any more hazardous to them than a little supposed reaction with the metal in the paint?
Need to know more about the circumstances with the radio.
Paint away!
Ole Pete
