    It will help for sure because it will lighten your wallet so you will go much faster.

    Only if you go down under every day with your brass wool and keep them that way. 2 weeks in salt water will quickly rid of the shiny finish on your props. Prop speed or Rustoleum Cold Galvanizing are your best bets.

    Prop Speed works for sure. But it is expensive. However, I would argue that the fuel savings offsets the cost.
