Re: To paint or not to paint the prop....

I am considering Zingard from Mgduff.

It does require some surface preparation the first time, but the subsequent layers (following seasons) can be applied after a quick cleaning of the remaining Zingard - thus saving time on extensive surface preparation each year.

It might not be the world best propeller coat - but apparently - no propeller coat is....BUT the zinc layers actually works as an extra zinc and theoretically prevents corrosion of the propeller..cheap, corrosion prevention, easy application...seem to me that this product beats the PropSpeed, etc..

We also did 3+ weeks in the North Channel. FABULOUS cruise venue. Photos are from the dock at Killarney. No need to clean anything - ever.

Re: To paint or not to paint the prop....

2 seasons using petit zinc barrier coat. works great. the few things that do stick come off very easily.

I found in our mooring field, I need to use an entire can to get enough coats that it lasts the season. first year, it ate away (it is making your prop a zinc) in areas and stuff stuck to it hard. second year, entire can. very good results
