I will have to clean the barnicels and other growth off the wheel of my speed transducer on weekly basis to keep it working?
Is there anything made that would eliminate or lessen any growth on the transducer?

Not to bring up old topics, but I have good luck spraying a clean and dry transducer with Sailkote, then letting that dry as well. That will work for several weeks to several months depending on how well the crop of crud is doing this season. Alternatively, I''ve used some waterproof grease with some luck. Other people report good luck with Desitin, the baby diaper rash stuff.

SailorMitch,
Thanks for the tips. Is there a good way for cleaning the hard to reach spots of the transducer?
