Re insulator wax - do you mean the Collonite Insulator Wax they use for power line insulators? Do you sail in salt or fresh water? The insulator wax sounds like an interesting option.

Re lanolin - i looked into that last year- input from others seem to indicate that the grease is going to fly off once the prop spins up - so its a near term solution.


I've used hard insulator wax with good results. I would think grease would be short-lived on a prop. It's surprising how much friction there is from water & sediment on a prop. I guess it all depends on how much you motor vs. sail.
