For the Boat Captain

I only ever use Propspeed on my boat’s running gear, due to its superior performance and durability over any other product. End of story!”

Propspeed

For the Boat Yard

It really adds something new to the industry - protecting your running gear and propellers, and increasing fuel efficiency - so to us, it’s a no brainer. Why wouldn’t you use it?

Satellite tagging, Manta rays and Whale sharks, Indonesia

Sep 15, 2017, 09:50 AM by Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicTypes.Model.Authors.Author

Needing a non-metallic, non-toxic, non-fouling coating to use on satellite tags, Mark Erdmann of Conservation International started applying Propspeed after a colleague’s recommendation. A year later, some Propspeed coated tags have been recovered from the manta rays they were deployed on, with very little fouled growth despite the rays living in a warm water growth-rich environment.

“Conservation International has our New Zealand base at the University of Auckland’s Institute of Marine Sciences and we support specific country programs throughout the Asia-Pacific region. In Indonesia, one of our priority programs is working with the government to conduct a large-scale satellite and acoustic tagging program on manta rays and whale sharks in order to better understand their movements around Indonesia to optimally manage their populations. The tagging programmes have been very successful to date and have provided a tremendous amount of exciting data. Propspeed is a very efficient and easy way of keeping the tags free of fouling so they will reliably transmit. We’re not the only marine research programme using Propspeed – satellite tag manufacturer (Wildlife Computers) recommends Propspeed specifically in their user manuals and now you can even order your tags pre-coated.”
