Application of PropspeedT is a simple two step process beginning with a catalyzed etch primer followed by a silicone based top coat. It is an environmentally safe product and does not contain copper, tin or any other toxic substances which may cause environmental pollution. PropspeedT is a solution to a problem which has frustrated owners and captains for years. Propspeed increases vessel performance, increased fuel efficiency, less maintenance costs, easily applied, incredibly effective, long service life, zero toxic substances. Can be used on propellers, shafts, bow thrusters, rudders, trim tabs and keel coolers.
How often should I need to antifoul my boat?
As a general rule, we highly recommend you tend to your antifoul at least once every 12 months.  Another consideration is if your boat is moored in a heavy water flow like tides and currents, it may require antifouling more frequently then moored in still water. With the shallower water on the Gold Coast, we are little more prone to wearing out the protective coating on the running gear.  Even in a couple of metres of water, the props are pushing sand without us even realising. For this type of maintenance, it’s necessary to take the boat out of the water, so you can see exactly what’s going on underneath. Take the opportunity of having your boat out of the water to check your anodes. Be aware that they are sacrificial items that need to be monitored.

Note: Knowing the service history of your boat is a huge advantage in taking care of it. Log all of your maintenance and the condition it was in before tending to it. Over time, you’ll gain a greater understanding of how often your boat requires care.
 
Our Antifoul Procedures consist of the following:
• Scrape the hull and running gears of barnacles and other underwater growth
• Grind and/or sand all running gears, eg. shafts, props, rudders, trim tabs etc
• Remove thrusters, anodes and any scoops that need cleaning out
• Wash and scrub the hull with sand paper and heavy scotch brite pads
• Prime all metal surfaces with a 2 pac epoxy etch primer and any hull bits with a single pac primer
• Mask up and spray on the antifoul using an airless spray gun

Maintenance...
We are located on the Coomera River at The Boat Works (next to Gold Coast City Marina) where we can offer first-grade marina services.  At The Boat Works, their boat yard and slipping facilities cater for a broad range of boats from your everyday runabouts to large multi-hill catamarans and luxury yachts.  We also can provide services for more unique vessels including game and house boats.
 
☼ Regular Maintenance
Regular maintenance of your boat is far more cost-effective than a cure.  For this reason, maintaining your boat's antifoul or 'bottom paint' is imperative, particularly where your boat is permanently moored in the water.  Antifoul is a specialised paint that protects the hull of your boat from fouling organisms.  Without it, your boat will experience increased drag through the water, and your fuel consumption will skyrocket as time goes by (in extreme cases, up to 50% less efficient). 
 
☼ Visual Inspections
Accumulations of fouling on the hull can quickly grow into larger masses causing a lot of resistance and severely hampering a vessel's maneuvarability as well as wasting your fuel consumption.  Our Antifouling Service involves removing any foul from the hull of the vessel before a visual inspection to determine if any additional maintenance is required on the hull.  We check for signs of osmosis, anode replacement or any signs of cracking.
 
☼ Marina Services
At The Boat Works we have access to the 45 tonne Sea Lift (the first of it's kind).  This purpose built machine has dual, horizontal and vertical adjustable fingers for a safer alternative to the retiring slipway.  The Sea Lift provides peace of mind to the boat owner by allowing the weight to be dispersed evenly.  They also work in with the conventional 70 tonne travelift capable of hauling boats up to 85' in length.
