Volvo saildrive 130s

I have an aluminum saildrive. I need to repaint it. Does anyone know what paint to use? Also what paint can I use for my metal prop? Trying to keep growth off the prop.

Re: Volvo saildrive 130s

A common solution, and what Ive done, is to strip the sail drive to bare metal, apply epoxy barrier coat, then overcoat w Trilux 33 or similar. You only need to apply the barrier coat once, after that just reapply the Trilux 33.

There are also a bunch of threads here on the subject ("site:cruisersforum.com saildrive paint").

Propspeed is a popular antifouling for props.

I think the barrier coating approach above is best. Ive even seen cupros paints used over barrier coated SDs with no noticeable effect...but thats a bit close for comfort for me.

If you dont want to barrier coat then you could just paint w Trilux 33/Propspeed.
