Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] batteries and prop paint
Bill, If you say Velox is good , than I believe it to be true. Velox never responded to me ,when I asked this question,maybe you know. Is Velox not to be used in fresh water? I know some bottom paints should not be used in anything but salt water. I followed the instructions and my prop was covered with barnacles in three months.

Only use AGM's if your battery chargers, including high-amp engine-mounted alternator can be set for AGM charging. If you do not set the charges for AGM charging the AGM will work, but you probably will not get the life that you planned. I would use a normal wet cell for the engine start and fit the highest amp battery that will fit...there is more space for the engine start than a Group 31.
I have used lots of different ideas on the prop. The best has been Velox and if you use a black bag over the prop, be sure to add 2 cups of powdered clothes washing soap to the bag.
