clear glide wire pulling lubricant as a bottom barnacle coating

I have been following along on this thread and someone posted that clear glide kept the prop and rudder clean of growth after 6 months.

New antifoul discovery - 100% effective AND green - Page 8 - Boat Design Forums

So I wonder if anyone has any experience using it in its intended usage and how it reacts under water. There are several formulations and one includes teflon.
Ideal Wire Pulling Lubricant

It is fairly low priced and I am going to do my own testing.

Just thinking some more you know some underground cable conduits are filled with water. I need to buy some and test it before doing any more thinking.

We have had good results with "Fissan Paste" A thick, lanolin based zinc salve for babies tender regions. 6 months but our prop only turns 300 RPM.

I've tried anhydrous lanolin on the prop and strut. Did not last more than a month. Above water great stuff. Not so under water. Sluffs off and fish munch on it.
