Default Transducer Anti Fouling Paint

Last summer my boat was moored in New Port for 3 months. The bottom of the boat had been anti foul painted, but my transducers had not been treated. I had significant barnacle build up on both transducers and speed wheel. After doing a little on line search and a call to Lowerance , I found out there is a anti fouling paint that is aproved to use on these devices. I didn't know if this has been brought up before. Product is MDR Water Base Anti Fouling Transducer Paint $12.99

Not sure if that’s what I used last year or not, purchased mine thru west marine. Sorry I can’t remember the brand, but it worked great zero build up at all. Boat in the water in May and out in October, will be putting another coat on this spring.

Should have googled before I responded, that’s what I used.

Google "FoulFree". It's a new product approved by Airmar. It's not water based and probably costs more than 13 bucks.

Looks like a great solution to the problem -- but I can't find a US source yet.

I'm guessing, since it's a new product, you can probably buy it from those companies that stock their other products Propspeed and Lightspeed. https://oceanmax.com/find-an-applicator. I hope anyway.

I can't find this Foul Away except references to boat yards. I see it comes in kit form.

I've been using a spray product for outdrives and outboards that claims it can be used on transducers, its by Petite paints. I find it works but only short term. The algae buildup still occurs but no hard growth, but I pull the boat every 4 or 5 weeks and do a clean up.

Call Rodgers, they have some that works great, easy to apply. Moor in saltwater about 5 months and x-ducer had almost no growth, what was there wiped off with a rag.
