Any thoughts on this?
While Trinidad is as good an anti fouling
as one can buy, IMHO, do not expect great results from it if used on your running gear
, particularly the prop. There is simply too much wear and turbulence from water
action for any typical anti fouling
to last long. I'm not saying don't paint
the prop, it couldn't hurt, but if my experience as a hull
cleaner is anything to go by, it won't stay on the prop very long.
The new miracle solution for props is "PropSpeed." Very effective but with a price
tag to match.
