Composite Hub on Flexofold

Just finishing installing a Torqeedo pod drive and mounting a 2 blade flexofold prop with a composite hub. what do you recommend for antifouling paint on the hub?

read elsewhere that Flexofold uses bronze that has an especially high copper content. does this mean it's a good practice not to use antifouling on the prop blades?

Thanks all

^^^^^
FWIW, our FOF three blade prop grows barnies just fine when not covered with prop-speed or equivalent. No sign of magic bronze, sadly!

Re: Composite Hub on Flexofold

and found an answer for the hub!!! Vernon posted his FOF composite hub install and he coated the hub and blades with propspeed.
