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!
