  • Petit Prop Guard

    Approximately 1 year ago, I hauled my boat out of the water, did a bottom paint, zincs and coated my props, rudders and shafts with Petit Prop Guard. I have to say, I am now a huge fan. Hauled the boat tonight to redo the zincs. Props, shafts and rudders had a bit of slime on them, but otherwise were absolutely clean.

    Good product. I don't need to do a bottom paint this season - will apply another coat next year.

    Here is a photo below -- what it looked like when I hauled the boat. Quick pressure wash and the Prop Guard coat is still there.

    I've had similar experience. I'll burnish the props this year (after two years) and reapply.

      That's impressive TenMile. Next haul out I'm going to give it a try.

        Unfortunately my experience with this product has been the opposite. I will not use it again.

          Just reporting back on this topic again. I hauled the boat yesterday to do the zincs and paint the bottom. Props, shafts and rudders were basically spotless. That's 2 full years from a single can of the Petit product. I had also used the Pettit ablative bottom paint 2 seasons ago and honestly, I could have skipped this year and waited until next year to do the boat bottom as it was perfectly clean. Given that I purchased the paint and had a friend helping, I did 2 coats of bottom paint and will likely go 3 seasons next time.

          Anyhow, big thumbs up to the Pettit products - Barnacle Barrier for the props and their Ablative for the bottom.

            It’s my understanding that Rustoleum zinc rich paint is similar to the Petit. I sprayed a coat on my props this spring. There was a little wearing off of the paint over 1300-1400 miles but no growth or slime.
