Yours and Peter`s posts, raise the usage effect. I was told regular use was necessary to "spin" the developing barnacles off, my experience too was disuse didn`t matter.
Responses suggest more experience of PropSpeed in Aust, though Tom in PNW has used it for 10 years. Maybe the need comes from shell growth in our warmer climes.
PropSpeed used more in Fort Lauderdale than probably all of Australia combined and has been for years. Similar reasons for popularity due to warm water and heavy growth.

BruceK, no can't remember what the other product was but doesn't matter as i will stick to Prop Speed , have been using it for well over 10 years now and wouldn't do it any other way.
Have used all the other systems previously, hard anti foul, AP 4 etc, etc none were successful especially if you laid up for a month or so.Being a timber boat I haul out every 12 months especially here in tropical waters , give the antifoul a quick lick and check for worms and as long as the yard people don't stuff it up Prop Speed every 2 years.
