Prop Speed, is it worth it?

In the past we have applied and worked with the following 3 scenarios
1/ No prop coating. ( result: heavy marine growth after 6 months afloat in the med)
2/ Hard antifoul for props by Venitziani ( result: heavy marine growth after 6 months afloat in the med)
3/ Prop speed. (result: see below)

Although prop speed is expensive, we think the photos below show that it works very well. The cost can be offset against the fuel savings.
The photo with growth was after 6 months cruising in Mediterranean waters with no scrubbing.

Has anyone found it didn’t work for them?

Timeline PhotosNew Zealand government is highly motivated to see the 36th Americas Cup go ahead but is equally anxious not to lose the huge gains made in containing the coronavirus pandemic early.

Obviously all syndicates want to be in NZ within several months to begin training on the radical 75-foot foiling monohulls that remain untested in racing situations.

American Magic have already shipped their first generation boat to Auckland, making the call early and gambling that the travel restrictions will ease.
The British syndicate is waiting to see what unfolds as they juggle whether to continue testing in Portsmouth or pack it off to New Zealand.
Luna Rossa is training in Sardinia and not planning to arrive in Auckland until local spring.
Kiwis just received Te Aihe finally back from Europe where the pandemic cancelled warm up regattas in Italy and England. Team was using a small-scale test boat to work through their design tweaks.

While watching how the New Zealand’s response to the pandemic is unfolding all teams are currently building their second generation boats.

The coating on the bottom of your boat is always a well discussed topic! Over the years we have worked with Copper coat on a few boats and have always found that it works well.
The only issue we have noticed is the need for a separator zone between it and bronze skin fitting to avoid de-zincification through electrolysis, a simple fix with a bead of sealant .

has anyone had any bad experiences?

Personally we have not had good results in our area fouling seemed to be worse than conventional a/f. Also had difficulty with some adhesion to the hull but we were not present during application.

Agree. This is an area of debate amongst many but our experience is that if you coppercoat onto or over skin fittings it creates issues!

Very excited about this week, we are a support vessel for one of the teams from Honolulu. Starting on Wednesday, it’s a 3 day paddle event between 4 islands and over 100, 6 man, outrigger canoes, 129 km long! ... See MoreSee Less
