Running gear paint

I just hauled my boat the other day and was pleasantly surprised as to the lack of growth of barnacles on the running gear.
The previous owner used Pettit's Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier and told me he was very pleased with the results.
The boat went in the water in late April when we bought the boat and what we saw the other day was great. Normally, my barnacle growth would be 5 times what I saw.
I'm sure this paint isn't as good as Prop Speed but considering the very large difference in cost and the ease of Application (comes in a spray can), this paint is hard to beat.
