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.

          Comments about Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint:

          I tried to spray my aluminum dock ladder. The nozzle got clogged up about half way through the can and I couldn't get any more paint out. Plus the nozzle leaked and I got paint all over my fingers. What a waste of money - I'm taking the can back.

            Comments about Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint:

            Paint works as advertised, but if you don't completely use the can, good luck cleaning the nozzle. Followed the directions exactly as written, but next time, paint barely came out and eventually stopped - with more than 1/2 of the can left. No way to order/buy additional nozzles, so now I have a 1/2 used can and no way to get the paint out of it.

            Very expensive usage.

            I applied this last spring to that underwater parts of my outboards, was barnacle free at the end of the season. I reapplied this year after removing any loose paint and brushing away any slime, etc. We'll see if it works even better with a second application.

              Shook can for a full 3 minutes after hearing the ball. Pressed on the spray head and entire contents discharged from under the head, never passing through the nozzle. Thought it was a fluke so bought another can and the same thing happened. If they are going to charge over $40 for a can of paint, it ought to at least operate as good as a $6 can of rustoleum
