Anyone here use it yet? Eelsnot Boat Therapy | Eelsnot
Saw their booth at the boat show last weekend and they got my attention. Sounds like some miracle stuff, and they're local to me...
I need to start planning what to do with my bottom paint. It's hard, and except for the transom, looks intact, but I know it's at least three seasons old and I don't know what kind of paint it is. Was wondering if I should try this Eel Snot stuff on the bottom at least for this first season, see how it does, and maybe tackle stripping and painting the bottom next winter.

Sounds like its to use just above the paint line where scum from wave action can form. I would be interested in that.

No, you can do the scum line, but he says people have good results on the entire bottom.

I wonder if I would paint this on the outdrives and on my waterline to keep the slime off?

Mmmmmmmm?

They have a variant for the outdrive. And you rub it on, I'm guessing with just a rag.

I feel they are over zealous with their claims on fuel savings of 25%. Maybe compared to a boat that has been sitting to allow significant marine growth.

Since I am in a boatel I doubt I would see any fuel savings however if I leave the boat in for the weekend I get slime along the waterline and this would be attractive to me to prevent that.

I agree 25% is huge, but I think their point is that it reduces friction over just your bare paint, not necessarily compared to a barnacle or slime covered hull. That probably would be closer to 25%.
