Default Is anyone using Eelsnot?

I'm ordering in some and was wondering if anyone else has tried it on their Maxum. The reviews are excellent and it's certainly worth I try I think.

Here's their link - Eelsnot

Just the protection to the outdrive will be a great benefit methinks.

Answer here was no, but I have two tubs for the bottom and one for the drives to try this year.

Sorry, I totally missed your original posting. Should have done a search - "my bad".

So I'm not going to be alone in using this on a Maxum - that's great!

Are you going to apply it with the 3M hookpad mounted on a rotary type sander, or by hand?

I thought I just rub it on by hand. That's after I fix all the blisters in my bottom, sand the old paint, and paint with Blue Water Copper Shield Hard that I got...

Yes Mike, we'll be happy to report our thoughts after haulout next fall.

Now I have to make sure to post myself a note to remember, and then remember where I posted it.

I had never heard of the stuff. I keep my boat in a very tannic river. I often arrive at the boat to find a weird brownish-red foam sitting around the leeward side of the boats. It gets trapped between the dock and the boat and gives it a disgusting scumline.

I can use MaryKate On & Off to clean it. That strips the wax off and makes the scumline grow twice as fast. I even scrub the hull once a week with just a rag, but the first 4 inches above the bottom paint still slowly turn a brownish-yellow as the season progresses.

I'm going to give this stuff a try and see if makes a difference. I was going to raise the bottom paint line another 4-5 inches, but this stuff would be much easier.

Did you apply it yet? How'd you do it and how easy was it?

They include an application pad in each tub of Eelsnot. Simply dip it into the wax like stuff and rub it on where ever you want the protection. I did above and below my waterline and some on the transom under the swim platform.

I also bought a small container of their "Gear" Eelsnot. Again, simply rubbed it on to the outdrive assembly and the prop. So far it looks pretty good - no growth whatsoever.

You can also use a couple of those little round cotton pads the ladies like for make-up as applicator pads. They work just fine.

We'll let you know the final verdict when we haul out in October. Looks pretty promising so far.
