Dear Sirs, I would
like to congratulate you on your product. After 40 years of
using other types of materials on propellers, the results over
the last two years have been so good, I now use it on shafts,
trim tabs and paddle wheels logs and have achieved amazing
Considering I do all my boating in the South East corner of the
United Kingdom in probably the worst underwater growth area
known to man, a quite outstanding performance from your product.
I have and will continue to recommend it to my friends.Your
Hi, thanks for a great antifouling
it has worked wonders on my boat.
I really like your propshield stuff. It works great and stops
those shells sticking to my screws. The boat goes like stink,
much better than last year when it was covered in shells on the
is the best ive tried, ive tried everything from conventional
antifouling paint to these new fangled two pot paints and none
have worked as well as yours.
My yacht has a folding propeller and has always been a problem
with barnacles stopping it folding properly. This has caused
drag and slowed the boat when sailing. When using the engine
which is only small at the end of the season I hardly make any
headway against a strong tide. Since using PropShield I have a
new propeller all season and it has transformed my boating.

I thought I should
write to let you know how pleased I am with your product. Not
only has it prevented those dreaded barnacles from sticking to
my props it has also stopped the damaging effects of leaving my
shore power connected. My props always looked green at the end
of the season and I regularly had to replace them every four
years. The one nearest to the pontoon was always the worst.
Since I have used Prop shield this problem seems to have
vanished. There was only a slight trace of green on the hub but
I am told that this is nothing to worry about. This should save
me £1200 for two props every four years or more. Thanks a lot
for a great product!
I was a bit disappointed with my initial use of propshield as it
did not seem to give me the protection that I had envisaged. I
have a motor cruiser based on the river crouch in Essex. This is
a very bad area for fouling and I expected to have at least
eight months out of propshield. I normally lift the boat three
times in a season to clear the encrustations from the props and
hull. So when I lifted it the first time I was surprised to find
a few small barnacles’ sticking to the props. However I scraped
them off and recoated with a single coat and re- launched. When
I lifted the boat a second time three months later no barnacles’
were to be seen except on the hub but that doesn’t matter. While
the boat was out I gave the props another coat. At the end of
the season I lifted her out for storage ashore and still no
barnacles. Next year I will lift out only twice but spread the
lifts out to four and half months instead of three. So already I
am saving money time and fuel. Perhaps I should have read the
instructions more carefully as you do say that recoating may be
needed in high fouling areas.
Thanks a lot Propshield and Giraffe UK
