McLube AntiFouling Speed Polish?

This is something new from McLube. Just announced. Has anyone tried it? And does anybody know where I can actually get some? Thanks in advance.

Judy

Re: McLube AntiFouling Speed Polish?

FYI- this product is unsuitable for boats that live in the water. It has an effective duration of just a few weeks, after which it must be reapplied. Seems to be marketed for dry sailed raceboats as a pre-regatta speed enhancer.

Re: McLube AntiFouling Speed Polish?

Hi Matt. I'm thinking about using this for my 19 foot trailer sailer. Little deuce sloop lives most of her life on the trailer. She's in the water for a few weeks at a time. I have 2 questions. Does the stuff work for a few weeks at a time? And doesn't contain silicon? I don't want to put anything on my boat that will make it hard to eventually to repaint it.

Re: McLube AntiFouling Speed Polish?

My understanding is that it will last for a few weeks at a shot and then must be reapplied. It also is a Teflon-based coating, which undoubtably would be a concern when going back to traditional anti fouling paint.
