How good is Prop Speed

I used to paint the bottom with antifoul and do the shafts and rudders with 2 coats of anti foul . My friend tells me Prop speed is the way to go .
Any thoughts ?

You just missed a lengthy thread on Prop Speed. Check the archives for lots of commentary.

The summary is that some have had success with it but a lot haven't and I am one of the latter. Someone said that you have to follow Propspeed's prep instructions to the letter to have any chance of it working.

2 years ago, we went with Velox instead of Propspeed. The Propspeed worked fine, but the yard labor to renew and total cost was not insignificant. I asked for an alternative, and Velox was suggested.

The Velox was commented on favorably by our diver many times. Itís performance has been very good, and we reapplied Velox again this year.
