Bottom Paint

I've tried everything from plain bottom paint, to petit's underwater metal kit, and another metal specific kit. They all work about the same... the picture below is after a year or so with plain bottom paint. Even though the paint is gone on the prop, there was no fouling on it. And most of the paint is still on the rudder. I now use propspeed on the propeller, and regular bottom paint on the rudder. New pix in about a month.

Oh, the bottom paint I've used for years is Petit Trinidad SR. Easily lasts 4 years here in the Galveston Bay area.
