I used Alumikote on my drive and tabs this year because they were out of "Trilux Prop and Drive" when I went to buy it. That is the worst stuff I have ever seen. It goes on like tar and didn't work at all. I had more growth this year than I've ever had. Do yourself a favor and don't bother. I had to dive on teh drive and tabs every week to keep the barnacle growth down. Sure, it allowed them to come off very easily, but the point is, they shouldn't have been growing as heavily as they did to begin with.
