RUNNING GEAR NEEDS LOVE TOO
Few things slow down a boat faster than a thick coating of barnacles and marine growth on the propellers, rudders and struts.
A product called Propspeed combats marine growth with a rubberlike coating that is easily wiped clean — not scraped or sanded like conventional bottom paint — which leaves the running gear as clean as the day it was applied. Propspeed can also reduce cavitation, which can eventually cause propellers to become out of balance and increase wear on the shafts and cutlass bearings.
Also applied to all metal bottom components, Mussel Buster Propeller Protection is an aquatic toxicity-compliant coating that significantly reduces fuel consumption and engine loads while all but eliminating electrolysis. By running the boat, in addition to diver maintenance, this ablative coating is formulated to keep the product working by bringing the organism-fighting ingredients to the surface of the coating. Similar to a ceramic in feel, Mussel Buster increases prop and engine revolutions per minute and improves cruising speed and fuel economy.
