    Default Boat just out but not sure to repeat prop antifoul

    Boat came out on Monday and normally I use a cup brush to clean the prop to restore a clean bronze look and then for each season have used TK line clear antifoul. So thinking this would be repeated I went on to Force 4 website to order some TK and the ad says suitable for 3 months in water. I have no comparison to say it has worked in the past because I always clean the prop and takes about the same effort so have I been wasting my time on this stuff? Perhaps I should not apply anything because I don't want to paint the prop with a colour really. Btw I stay in the water for 50 weeks in a year. Any thoughts appreciated

    My boat stays in just the same and I use Trilux spray which lasts a season with very little fouling. What is wrong with having it coloured? nobody sees it.

    Yes, of course. It does not adhere well without, particularly if your prop is bronze.

    Trilux is also very good on the log. No need to use a primer. (H/T VicS)
