Carbon Fiber Prop Coating

Postby flydock » Thu Jun 29, 2017 6:46 pm

I wonder if anyone has had the experience of applying any product to their carbon fiber prop to make it slicker and easier to keep clean? I know Sensenich will do it for a fee, but I would like to try something on my own.

I wash mine with a sponge and car wash every time I get home when I clean the boat always cleans up easy. I always keep prop covered and out of the sun light also. You can put a coat of turtle wax ice liquid polish on it also I'm sure that would help also.

This time of year I like to keep a thick coating of smeared bugs on my prop. I also keep it in the shade. That combination really protects the carbon. Like sunscreen in the shade!
