I said, "I have used lots of different ideas on the prop. The best has been Velox." I did not say Velox worked in all situations. I said of the things I have used which are listed and rated in order:
I believe the biggest variable is where you are and how often you move. Some places are infested with prolific barnacles. Sometimes running the motor will spin-off fresh barnacles. Some anchorages have none and most marinas have a lot because of boats neglected with a coating of barnacles.
When we were stationary for the winter in the Med, I used the black plastic bag three times. It worked for me when adjacent boats did not use a bag and had a lot of barnacles. I used powdered clothes washing detergent because a French Amel owner advised it. He said that they would not grow in water with detergent.
