For years I wire-brushed and repainted outdrive every spring with Volvo gray on zinc chromate primer, and it peeled off by the end of the season. Yard mechanic recommended Trilux 33 in gray. This time, I used Interprotect 2000E for primer. At the end of the season, there was very little peeling, not much slime growth and the outdrive powerwashed well in the fall. This Spring, I'll just wipe it down and add another can for another season. Only downside is the dull gray doesn't match the VP shiny gray; but it works, so I'll use it again this year.

Have tried Primocon and Trilux 33 for a few years on my outdrive. It applies great, dries fast, and leaves an excellent finish. However, it doesn't appear to be effective at preventing bottom growth. I boat in Chesapeake Bay region and continually experience heavy barnacle build up that must be scraped about every month during the boating season. Going to try something different this year.

      Could not use this product. Valve would not work, would just splatter. Called West Marine but they did not have a replacement in the color I needed so I went to a different source. I will return the flawed product to West Marine.

        Comments about Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint:

        I buy a lot of stuff at West Marine but no more Trilux 33. Here it is the weekend and I want to get my trim tabs and transom mount painted. Open brand new can of Trilux Spray shake for a good long time and try to use it. Instead of a nice easy spray I get paint spewing out from under the nozzle and dripping all over the place. I should throw it in a bag and take it back but that will blow an hour of my weekend and who knows if the next can will be any better. Suffered through and will hope hope it lasts the season. Next time will try something else. 40 something dollars and half of it was all over my hands by the time I got done

              Comments about Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint:

              I bought this for the first time and unfortunately I read these write ups after I purchased it but I figured I would give it a try. After shaking the can for a full 3 minutes I went to spray it and the paint would only come out in 2 second bursts. Then after a short time the paint came out under the nozzle and left a huge mess on my hands and the ground. I was only able to get half the out drive done and still had over half the can left when it stopped working all together. I drove 20 miles back to the store I bought it at and he said he has had others return it also. He exchanged it for me and I drove 20 miles back home and shook the can as the directions stated. I tried it again and the same thing happened, the paint would only come out in a 2 second bursts. I had to continually shake the can every two seconds to get that even to work. Then the paint started to come out under the nozzle again. I decided to twist the nozzle and give that a try. I got full pressure coming out of the nozzle as well as under the nozzle. Being the paint was coming out with good pressure I painted the whole outdrive quickly. Needless to say half the paint ended up on my hands and the ground. Such a waste of time and money. I am surprised with all the complaints Interlux still puts their name on this product.

                  Bought the product for the annual outdrive reconditioning. After cleaning, acid wash, base coat was ready to apply the product. The nozzle froze up after about 15 seconds and I could not get it to work again. Tried cleaning it, upside down spraying, etc to no avail. Had to travel 20 miles each way to find another can which set me back a full day for launch. The second can I bought started to have problems with the nozzle as well but was able to get a full coat but not able to use the whole bottle. I read online that others had similar complaints. You would think West Marine would have pulled the product from the shelf and sent it back to the manufacturer for a recall.
