Yes beautiful shine. Give us the details.

Who knows, maybe I'll get all my "need to do's" done and have time for "pretty for the sake of pretty"

Polished my 10yr old prop.

Question: Does this degree of shine keeps your prop clear of growth & barnacles?

Certainly not on our side of the Atlantic. I just bought a second hand prop so I have two on board. The previous owner had spent hour polishing it. Didn't have the heart to tell him I was going to rough it up with 80 grit and then paint it with 2 pack epoxy paint followed with antifoul paint.

I have tried a polished propshaft and covering with lanolin, but paint seems the most effective.

Don't have that problem as I'm always in the Great Lakes fresh water system so far.

Re: Polished my 10yr old prop.

Beautiful polish job.
Too bad it's going to get wet.

To a barnacle, that prop is RED MEAT.

Edit: The Cutless bearing looks shot to me....
