RUN­NING GEAR NEEDS LOVE TOO

Marlin - - BEFORE THE STRIKE RIGGER’S CORNER -

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.
