Re: Painted prop

I also use three thin coats of Petit Barnacle Barrier. It works fairly well for one-season application. Infinitely cheaper than Speed Prop. The prop should be brought down to bare metal and then rubbed down with acetone or MEK before applying.

Interlux Trilux 33 does come in an aerosol spray, like Pettit Prop Coat Barnacle Barrier, but that's where the similarity ends. Barnacle Barrier is a hard, zinc-based product that cannot be used on fiberglass and wood while Trilux 33 is an ablative, copper-based paint with an additional anti slime biocide and requires a primer before being used on bare metals. The Pettit product requires no primer.

Have there been a lot of "fiberglass and wood" props on the boats you've been cleaning lately?
Perhaps something is getting into your air supply?

Trilux 33 is an anti fouling paint that is formulated to be used not only on running gear, but boat hulls as well. Barnacle Barrier is not. Had you taken the time to actually read the thread you would have understood that I was replying to a post that inferred that the two products were essentially the same, which they are not. I described the differences.

Whatever. Just telling you what the manufacturer says about the product. If you want to use it in a manner that runs contrary to the manufacturer's instructions, well, it's your dime and your prop.

I checked with the Interlux customer service folks last year about Interlux 2000 insulating aluminum from the copper in a typical bottom paint. Their response was that Interlux 2000 does not effectively prevent galvanic action in this case and advised me not to use copper bottom paint.
