So it's that time of the year again and I'm wondering what to antifoul the propeller
Propspeed would be nice but it's expensive and I'm told it's really only suited to boats that get continuous use.
Last time I sanded the prop back to bare metal and used the recommended red oxide filled vinyl etch primer followed by a hard vinyl antifoul. I'm expecting that when the boat comes out I'll again find that the barnacles
and their friends have stripped everything from the prop leaving themselves glued to the bare metal. The primer seems to come off as quick as the antifouling.
So I'm wondering if it's worth trying a different primer, maybe something like POR 15 (moisture cured polyurethane
?) topcoated with the vinyl primer and hard antifouling on top of that.
Anyone have any thoughts?
