Paint Prop & Shaft

Understand the old spray can paint for outboards, metal, etc. is now outlawed.

Does anyone know what replaced it. Also since I have never painted a prop and shaft before, what is the process? Do you sand it, prime it, etc.?

Paint Prop & Shaft

nauticalrich,
I was just looking at a book last night titled "Outboard Care and Maintenance"...sorry I don''t remember who wrote it...but it was at Borders bookstore. It had very detailed instructions and photos on painting a prop and shaft. Might be of some help...

Paint Prop & Shaft

I am using a multi-coat system from Interlux for my underwater bronze (propeller and strut). It is a pricey pain in the butt to do it, but it looks like it should work. Pettit has an "underwater metals kit" that is less expensive, but I do not know anything about it. Check this out: http://home.att.net/~curthauger/shaft_prop_strut.htm

Good luck.

Paint Prop & Shaft

Special metal primer is supposed to be applied after (light) sanding, then a topcoat or two goes over that within a specified time, (about a hour, if I remember correctly), and then you can paint that with your regular antifouling bottom paint. The trick is to make sure all the metal gets covered with the primer and topcoat before the regular antifouling. Otherwise, the copper in the antifouling turns your strut & prop into swiss cheese. The biggest hassle if having to wait between each coat for the right amount of drying time, since the area isn''t really all that big.
