CEB......my boat sails more in one year than most boats here in 3 years, believe me...but was stopped still for almost 2 months when the boom broke. That is when it got dirty... and when the boom arrived I went sailing rtaher than fixing it....
The zincs are coming out a new ones installed, I guess I'll have to replace them more often. These are from early march 2006, so been in water for a year and 2 months. So they paid their dues...
My original question is what to use to clean the prop so it does not get damaged on cleaning...you know...what brush etc. I want to do it myself...then...what to put on it, because the barnacle slow me down.
Christyleigh, I called Westmarine and they said the clear anti vegetative they had for outboard was removed because it had some weird bad chemical, but I bought a can of Propspeed kit, and will try it. Its is expensive though.
Goodnews, I did not understand what you mean by mix of metals. Please explain. I have the bronze Gori Prop, and the saildrive column...these are all standard materials in the industry..
