Re: barnacle growth on feathering prop
Would you just dive down and wipe down the prop every two weeks?
I don't mind going swimming every so often but sometimes I cannot make it out there for a while.... you know, kids, family, work and life really takes away my sailing time....(joking)
When I purchased the prop last year, it was highly polished and I was surprised to see so many barnacles on it when I pulled her out in Dec.
I spoke to a few people that used the Pettit zinc barrier coating and appears only to make a difference within the first month or two.
