Antifouling Prop & Shaft

I just finished scraping and sanding a season''s worth of barnacles off the bronze propeller and shaft on my boat. Any advice on antifouling coatings for a prop/shaft. I know most antifouling paints are a no-no on bronze. The few paints I''ve seen made specifically for props or drive shafts are for aluminum and I''m not sure if they are appropriate for bronze.

Antifouling Prop & Shaft

I''ve used Pettit Antifouling Blue, (with copper), on my bronze prop and ss shaft for years. I''ve not noticed any damage from electrolysis.

Anybody else out there with a comment?

Antifouling Prop & Shaft

more than a year ago the sailnet website recommended a barrier coat on my prop and shaft before applying anti fouling paint. Of course I leave untreated space for the zinc. I have had much better success than without the barrier coat. No damage either.

Antifouling Prop & Shaft

Are you guys saying that some paints can cause damage? If so what paint should you not use?

Of course I am aware that you do not paint the surface where the zincs are attached.

Copper based paints cause damage.

Question

This thread is a bit dated. Any updated suggestions for coating the prop and shaft?

Here are my before and after pictures:

June 2009


November 2009:

In addition to the sea fauna, you can see black caulk where the strut had been reattached mid-season from a Delaware bay crab trap fouling.

Time to get out the power washer and new Zincs.

Any one try Prop Glop? I've used Prop Speed with excellent results, but it's prohibitivly expensive. Prop Glop seems new to market and much less expensive.
