Last time it was coated was two years back in Perth; since then it has had about 200 hundred hours on the prop and I hope to haul in the next few weeks and expect it to be somewhat fouled but still usable. I am of course, in a low fouling area.
Most people seem to think it is - at the best - eccentric (but harmless) but I'm happy to keep doing it.
I'm also sure there might be better solutions
