proposing to paint prop

I got tired of scrapping shellfish off of my prop and shaft. I painted it. I paint my brass rudders and the stainless cav plates too. Those pesky critters cause alot more loss of effeciency than any amount of paint does. My props are 30 years old and there still fine. The guy that had the boat before me painted them too. How is it that constant and often scraping with steel wool and sharp scrapers arn''t any more hazardous to them than a little supposed reaction with the metal in the paint?
Need to know more about the circumstances with the radio.
Paint away!
Ole Pete

I am wondering about the interference also. I dont think it is sparks due to the prop being bronze. Could it be when the screw driver comes in contact with the prop it changes the ground configuration of the chassis??? Are you grounding yourself to the screwdriver and including your 600 or so ohms? I dunno

Thanks for all the helpful suggestions. I''ve decided to give the prop a season au naturel, if that''s the way it''s spelt.
I''ll let you know what happens at the next haulout.
The interference thing is still a puzzle, along with 99% of the rest of the universe.

Thanks again.

My Question is to MSam:

Was the wax that you put on you propeller a wax or a liquid? Do you remember any thing more about the name, brand, etc?

Sail_net4Bob-

Please check the dates before replying to a thread. As SR has pointed out, this is a dead thread... As for painting your prop, it reallly would help if you said what the prop was made of, and what kind of boat it was on. Also, I highly recommend you read the post in my signature...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Bob...I think he is referring to the clear go-fast liquid they USED to sell that I also used on the bottom of my Rib dingly. It was removed from the shelves for problems reported but apparently has re-appeared as a bottom wax now.
