My boat is slipped in salt water for the season (about 6 months)
I have a diver clean the hull ever 6 weeks.

Anyone using or have used Propspeed?
Advantages, disadvantages?

I can’t decide if the is something I should have done.

Well considering I had to search for what that stuff is, I'm probably not much help. We are in the salt though year-round, and I have the drives painted, but not the props. The yard used Interlux Ultra-Kote. If you try Propspeed, let us know how it works and maybe I'll change next time we paint.

Do you have that much of an issue on the prop directly? I have never seen it used on stainless props, only on large Nibral based inboard props. Depending on the amount of growth it may not be worth it. On freshwater I am not sure how much it would help. In Texas once the water reached into the 90F mark the growth was pretty quick, but a simple rag wiped it right off the props. With outdrives it was easy to tilt up and reach from in the water under the swim platform, even on the 35SC.

Remember to never pressure wash it otherwise you will blow it right off. :shock:
Thanks, Chris

I’ve heard about propspeed here and there. The boat yard next to mine has it as a checkbox on their spring commission sheet. I thought I would just look into it and see what the opinions are out there.
