PropSpeed Propellor anti-fouling coating

Everyone says that PropSpeed anti-fouling for props and shafts is the best product to keep your propellor clean for up to one year or more.

The marina where I haul out my boat (just outside of Baltimore) is offering a free coating of PropSpeed as part of their winter storage package.

What is this stuff made of -Gold Dust - a tiny kit coats about $200.00!!! So I do not mind paying the $25.00 per foot for the haul and dry land storage this winter.

Has anyone tried to coat their keel or hull or engine seawater intake with the stuff? It is difficult to believe that any product will keep a prop barnacle free here on the Chesapeake.

Over the years, I have used Trinidad, Pettit Zinc Barrier Coating, Tri-lux - you name it and the barnacles are back in several weeks on anything underwater that is made of metal?

I am excited about having a clean prop during the summer sailing season. I am too old to go overboard to clean my prop every couple of weeks!

If anyone has used this product on the Chesapeake - let us know how it worked on your prop.
