Velox Plus Antifouling Paint

Velox prop paint

Primer went on easy and uniform, However the antifoul paint itself did not level out as easily as anticipated and required 3 coats to get proper
Coverage. We will see how it holds up over the summer.


The primer can arrive with a leak
At least the can was in a bag to contain the leak
The paint applied good
Time will tell if it’s any good
