I can only speak to my experience on my boat in my waters so I don’t know if your props and running gear will improve. In my case, I used to get a lot of mussels inside my thru-hulls but don’t now. I...

I don't know what brand it is, but it is a hard paint. It was on the boat when I got it and it was only touched up last year. The boat is moored in the open in southern Puget Sound.
