Is there a recommended way of protecting the paddle-wheel transducer from build up of barnacles
& associated sea-life with resultant lack of functioning of speed / log measurement?
I can pull the transducer out to clean it, or even keep it out while the boat is moored, but every time the transducer is removed or replaced, its a pretty wet exercise.
Can you use, say, anti-foul & thinners on the paddle and environs? Is there any other method that is recommended?
