Paint on maxi prop

Iím putting a maxi prop on my boat. I would like to put some type of protective coating on be i launch it. What type of paint or coating work best in the Caribbeanís warm waters. Iíve talk to Propeller shop and they use a wax base coating(in Seattle), but not sure if wax base would last in the warm water. Thanks

Re: Paint on maxi prop

Pettit Barnacle Barrier Zinc Spray followed by a hard paint without copper or... just leave it bare. Since you are in clear water you can see what you are doing and go to town on the prop with a good scraper and a burgundy scotch brite pad every few days.
