Prop Speed Prop Anti-fouling update report
I have been watching the boats coming out at Old Bay Marina for winter storage and the boats that they put Prop Speed on all have barnacle free props!! Many of the boats have badly fouled hulls -but the props and shafts are amazingly clean!
The boats without Prop Speed have barnacles and marine growth fouling their props.
Everyone on Sailnet says this stuff works - now I have seen it so with my own eyes. Steve, the yard guy at Old Bay likes it because he does not have to waste time with a putty knife scraping the prop and shaft.
Steve likes Prop Speed so much that he is supplying it free to all of his winter haulout customers, you just pay him for his labor to sand and prep the prop and he gives you the Prop Speed for free. He said that he buys it by the case and gets a better deal than you can get on line. He said that the mark-up is very high -- with a small Tuna Fish size can costing $200, but he gets it at wholesale cost.
