    How many coats of Petit Trinidad needed annually?

    When it comes to advising a client, I'm going with what the manufacturer recommends.

    Pretty much any ablative paint.

    I find it hard to believe that you do not know this. From the Pettit Technical Bulletin page: "Leaching Coppers (the paint type that includes Trinidad) must be repainted after dry storage." http://www.pettitpaint.com/how-to-advice/technical-bulletins/

    Black Widow

    Apologies. Was not my intent. Also, if I gave erroneous info regarding compatibility, I apologize. However the Pettit compatibility chart does not reference Baltoplate/VC Offshore. I assumed that since those are vinyl products (as is VC 17) that they would not be compatible with Black Widow.

    No he didn't.

    Black Widow cannot be applied directly over Baltoplate/VC Offshore. The latter product is vinyl-based and is compatible with other vinyl-based paints only.

    Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    Foul-release coatings such as the Interlux Intersleek line mentioned above have been available for years. They are not futuristic anti fouling technology. And in the case of Intersleek, the manufacturer decided to cease marketing it to recreational boaters due to lack of interest from consumers as well as boatyards.

    This product is not an anti fouling coating, nor is it advertised as such.

    Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    Also look at the shape of the spinner halves at the forward end. The Max Prop has a distinctive narrowing while the other prop remains much straighter: Further, notice the flat surfaces under the Max Prop blades. Clearly noticeable even when the blades are feathered. Don't see those on the other prop.

    Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    I disagree. Look at the hub ends:

    Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    The forward end of the hub doesn't look right. Too thin. Plus, there are large flat surfaces under each Max Prop blade, which I do not see here.

    Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    You don't need two tubes to fill a Max Prop, certainly no Max Prop model I've ever installed or lubricated. And BTW- the feathering prop in that picture doesn't look like a Max Prop to me.

    Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    Gosh, only a dozen or two sellers of Lubriplate 130-AA on Amazon. But you're right, why use the lubricant that is recommended by the manufacturer

    Trump is a racist. Any question?

    That is not true. You can love the pedophile but not be one. What you are is a pedophile-lover.
