Summary

As a boat owner and working in the marine industry, Chris highly recommends Lightspeed. After wrapping up his third boating season, the Lightspeed coating is still in great condition and does not need to be reapplied.

About

As an owner of a 42’ Trawler for 14 years, Chris Sullivan experienced endless problems with fouling on his underwater lights. Chris was experiencing a high-growth rate of barnacles and moss on his underwater light lenses, diminishing the light output due to the thick layer of growth. This was also difficult to clean while in the water.

After applying Lightspeed, Chris saw instant results. Due to it being a foul-release coating rather than antifoul, growth would rest on the lights if the boat went unused for a few weeks, however Chris would give them a quick wipe and all the growth would fall off, leaving his lights shining bright. After wrapping up his third boating season, the Lightspeed coating is still in great condition and does not need to be reapplied.

As a boat owner and working in the marine industry, Chris highly recommends Lightspeed. “The product is great, and I recommend it to all my clients when we do an underwater light install. Having the product in one easy-to-use package is great for my crew to use and they are set up for success!”

And if you’re not already using Lightspeed? Chris just had this to say – “Do you leave your boat in the water all season without bottom paint?”

"Lightspeed is a great product, easy to use, compliments well with the rest of the Propspeed product line. Foul-release coatings are a solid investment to keep things running efficiently and without issue.
