We carry out a general check of everything below waterline, if we find anything such as chips or gauges, blisters, osmosis, broken transducers etc. we will let you know and provide any quotes.

Eroded Anode replacements as required are additional and we will price separately.

Our general recommendation for re-antifouling, anodes checked/replaced and a general check of everything below waterline is every 12-18 months, and aluminium hull vessels every 12-15 months

We also provide first time (clean skin) antifouling procedures which include setting antifoul line, sanding, cleaning, 2 coats of epoxy primers.

PropspeedTM

Propspeed demo

Propspeed is a catalysed etch primer + silicone based top coat antifouling system designed for use on metal underwater running gear.

Propspeed has very low friction with water, its finish is similar to that of glass. 

Benefits of having Propspeed applied are:

  • Increased engine revs (across all ranges)
  • Increased fuel economy
  • Increased boat speed
  •  Superior adheasion to metal

Making Prospeed a viable upgrade for your boat's performance.

Our process:
Strip old propspeed or antifoul back to bare metal, clean with Propclean, condition metal with Propprep, apply 2 coats of Propspeed 2 pack gold coloured yellow/gold etching primer followed by Propspeed clear coat in the manufactures specified time frame to achieve a strong chemical bond.
