      Didn't work and impossible to remove

          Comments about Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier:

          I tried this last season on the brass shaft and prop on my sailboat that spends 5 months a year in saltwater in New England. In previous years I had not treated the underwater metal and was looking for a product that would deter marine growth. When I hauled the boat the shaft and prop was at least, if not more, barnacle and growth covered after using this paint than when left unpainted in prior years. The zinc on the shaft wasn't as disintegrated though, for whatever that's worth. After those poor results I decided to remove the paint and that's when I really regretted trying it. It was incredibly tenacious and extraordinarily difficult to take off even with a power sander. I'll never touch this stuff again.

                Comments about Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier:

                Had our sailboat hauled in May for full bottom paint. The zinc coat was recommended to reduce fouling on the prop.

                We did not use the boat since the bottom job till we recently completed a 300 NM trip where we motored at 5-6 kts for about 180 miles. The zinc coating is largely gone from the prop. So not sure what the expectations are for longevity on props but I'm not terribly impressed.

                  My fellow boating friend and I first used this product before launcing our boats in the spring on 2011 (Cheasapeake Bay). We sprayed all over all below waterline metals. We just pulled boats for winter storage in Dec 2011 and had virtually no barnacles on any metal surface. It worked very well. Highly recommend it.

                      I just got my boat back in the water after 3 years since the last bottom work and this product did a great job keeping the prop clean of barnicles for a good time. Good stuff. Recomended.This time I got it on the prop, tabs, rudder and shaft.

                          Easy to use and does exactly what it claims. Applied to all underwater gear (props, shafts, rudders, trim tabs). One full year in the water. Pulled boat to clean the bottom and gear in January and found that all the gear was growth and barnacle free! It just needs a light rough up and recoat for this year! Fantastic!

                              I use to use epoxy bottom paint (copper) on underwater metal , rudders,struts ,tabs,ect..ect
                              and would get to many barnacals on the underwater gear. Have now used the Pettit Kopcaot Zinc spray
                              for several years and there is a big differance ,
                              the product has reduced the barnacle growth by approximatly 95% and cut the time to apply paint to the underwater gear by more than half....
