RE : [Amel Yacht Owners] Algae on propeller

Patrick Naegels <naegels@...>

Hi Paul,

yes, you have to clean blades of your propeller to come back to 2.500

To avoid that, you can apply some coats of bottom paint on your
propeller at next haul out. Several brands are OK.
We succesfully tested 2 components PLASTIMO spray system in Med and 2
components JOTUN paint system in West Indies.

Easy to apply, that just take some time, because of the time you have to
wait between coats. Blades are rather clean during 1 year except if you
stay for a long call (several months)

Objet : [Amel Yacht Owners] Algae on propeller

I am new owner of a used sm (227). I did not use it much until know.
The boat is well maintained and in very good condition, we like it
very much. Nevertheless, there seems to be a problem with algae
development on the propeller when the boat lays for a few weeks in
the marina. Actualy the boat is in SanRemo in the Med. After a few
weeks not beeing used, the engines gets up to 1700t/m instead of 2500
or more. The previous owner had evertime asked a diver to clean the
propeller before navigating.
Has anybody experience in solving this problem. Or is the only way
diving and cleaning?
