Sailkote

Has anyone used this product? Have heard much hype about it''s "Miraculous" uses. Particularly interested in it''s properties for preventing algae and scum buildup. Thanks for any comments.

Sailkote

Bill,

You have asked the right person. As others can attest, I am a big advocate of Sailkote and it''s many uses. I joke about it a lot, but I also use it a lot. And yes, I use it on my knotmeter paddlewheel to keep down growth on it. It keeps the paddlewheel clean for 2-3 months at a crack here on the Chesapeake, which is far better than anything else I have tried on it.

I spray several coats on the wheel, letting it dry for a minute or two between coats. I basically spin the wheel and spray while spinning. Then re-install the wheel and go sailing.

I also used it recently when I rebuilt the head. The pump with the new gaskets worked hard, but not after a shot of Sailkote.

I also have used it with some success on my stern to reduce the black exhaust moustache, but I need to do more research on that application.

Denr is also a convert, if he will own up to it.

And no, I do not own stock in the company!

Don''t get SailorkoteMitch started on this Sailkote thing, he has even suggested it as a substitute for Viagra!

Denr, you promised you''d never tell my secret uses of Sailkote. Now I''m destroyed. But you do get used to the taste, and it goes down like.......well, like Sailkote should.

That''s better than the "Preparation SK" idea he had.

Viagra Eh! Sure never thought it was that "Miraculous". I''ll buy it on that recommendation alone.

Love the stuff.

We go over the hardware ever couple of weeks during racing season. General guideline: If it moves...Sailkote it. If something moves over it or through it, do the same. Good in sail tracks, doesn''t build up or turn sails colors.

Never used it for algae buildup on the speedo imepeller, although I will try it now.

I did use it to fix a recalcitrant screen door at my father-in-laws house though.

Best dry-type lube ever made. Buy it, use it on the boat, home - anywhere. Do not spray it on (or near) anything that you don''t want to slide or be slick.
