Lano Cote Prop and Bottom (Forespar)

Anyone use this stuff?
LanoCote Prop & Bottom

Just order a couple tubs to put on my prop that gets barnacle covered in just a few weeks. Could you really bottom coat the boat under water instead of hauling and painting? I do plan to clean prop and apply under water as instructions say this is ok.

Re: Lano Cote Prop and Bottom (Forespar)

I completely cleaned and prepped our prop and applied Prop & Bottom during a short haul in early Sept. I don't think 2 months of late-season use is much of a test, so I'll expect that prop to be clean when the boat is hauled in November! So, I gave it every chance for success--will look forward to your underwater application results.

Re: Lano Cote Prop and Bottom (Forespar)

When the boat was hauled, as I remember, the prop had barnacles and other junk on it. I have not use Lanocote since. I've gone back to spray on Pettit Barnacle Barrier, which also allows some barnacles, but it seems to take most of the season.

Re: Lano Cote Prop and Bottom (Forespar)

I have been in the hull cleaning biz for twenty two years. In all that time, the only boat I have ever seen using the Lanocote product was the J/32 I attempted to apply it to.

Using Desitin baby bottom ointment on dinghy outboard lower unit. Beats a $40 rattle can of antifouling for aluminum. Tip up the outboard, slather it on, good for 6-8 wks at a crack. No critters, no grass. 40% zinc oxide in lanolin.

Re: Lano Cote Prop and Bottom (Forespar)

We put 'Propspeed' on our prop in New Zealand and then went home and left the boat stationary in the water for 8 months. We then motored for a few hours and when we hauled the boat we found zero growth on the prop!

Home ? PROPSPEED | Proven Performance for your Boat

The cost for a 22 inch prop and the shaft, including labor, was about $200 US. I prepped the prop and shaft and the yard applied.

Re: Lano Cote Prop and Bottom (Forespar)

I applied the Forespar Prop and Bottom to my prop in March in S Florida and dove on it in May in the Bahamas and the prop was still clean. When I tried to reapply in-water, I had poor results.
Seems the best use is for winter-stored boats that could apply this in the spring before launch and get most, if not all, of a seasons protection from it.

I was the OP on this thread. I finally hauled my boat in 2015 and did complete overhaul. On the bronze running gear (prop, prop shaft) I used Forespar Bottom & Prop Coat (Lanolin product). I cleaned all the metal and polished as per instructions and applied on land. Boat went into the water last June. I still had to step the mast so the boat sat for 4 months. After stepping the mast I dove the boat to inspect and clean if needed. The prop and shaft were covered with barnacles, had to use a metal scraper to remove. Prior to the boat setting for 4 months I had only used the engine to move the boat 200 feet from the splash point to the dock, so not like the lanolin should have all come off. My slip neighbor also used the stuff at the same time I did. He has an ex 50 foot navy launch with a single engine and all bronze prop and rudder. He said he also got barnacles but the scraped off easily. I am located in Hawaii (Haleiwa Harbor) and our water is nutrient rich due to a river that discharges to ocean right next to our harbor. I would say the water would be similar to Summer time in the Middle Chesapeake Bay. Next time I will use Barnacle Buster. I do have another dock mate that used the Prop Speed and had good luck and highly recommended it. During the haul out I did epoxy over the bare bronze shaft strut and the used Amaron ABC 3 bottom paint- no problem with growth or barnacles there or on the rest of the haul (also using ABC 3). I still have some of the Lanocoat and will apply it next time I scrape the prop in the water and see how that goes.

In the beginning, there was only water...

Re: Lano Cote Prop and Bottom (Forespar)

Somewhere back in this thread someone mentioned Propspeed.

The owner of the charter company in Rhode Island that I used to work for applied this to the prop of all of the vessels in the fleet. Cost was >$250 per boat plus labor. Because I am a cheap [email protected]$tard, I have always applied less than half of a $30 can of Pettit 1793 Transducer Antifouling Spray Paint to my prop and shaft. At the end of the 7 month season, my prop looks just as good as theirs, and we are all berthed at the same marina. This could be because of the location, the fact that the barnacles don't like my 30-year-old boat, or something else... but I can maintain my propeller and shaft for less than one-tenth the cost of Propspeed.
