Hi Mark. Very interested in your reply. Are you sure it is propspeed you are using and not Interspeed.
Propspeed is a two part application that is a gold/yellow colour and remains tacky.
Very suprised you did not get a good result. Regards. Jason

Re: Top Speed Motoring ?

We have incredible growth where I am. If I leave the boat for 6 weeks this time of year I have to dive and spend at least a half an hour scraping barnacles. I generally always start a cruise with a dive.

Friday I buttoned up maritime operations after two weeks on the water. I could not believe the amount of slime and several hundred small barnacles on my inflatable!

I'm heading back to the boat after two weeks of work. I'm hoping that things won't be as bad as last year where I was away a month:

prop and shaft could not be seen and I'm not even in the tropics!

Re: Top Speed Motoring ?

Sounds like your diesel is the 4-91 or w30 Westerbeke, 1700 is a good cruise Rpm for them as redline is only around 22-2400.

Hi Lancelot, we're off the Neuse River near Oriental.

Capt Mike, that's pretty serious growth! I can never see mine that well, often do it with my eyes closed and just feel.
