You cant use it. Its the copper and other stuff in there that'll whack out the readings.
One of thoses little containers of transducer paint lasts for years.
What I do is borrow it from a friend every season after he comes over for his annual sandpaper allowence. Most people wont mind letting you borrow a coat or 2 because it'll dry out before the container could ever be used up.
It's cheap to buy also.
I've used that little container. I think its from MDR. Not real happy with the results. I'm told by FURUNO that water base antifouling paints are OK. Petit makes a couple and Woolsey makes one. Was wondering if any one had any experience with any of those?
My experience with MDR is that at the end of every season I have some growth and the occasional barnacle that I assume is reducing the effectiveness of the ducer. I would rather not dive under the boat several times a season to scrub it. I have heard that Neptune II from Woolsey works well, but I'll be buying a quart! If anyone in RI wants to share my lifetime supply, give me an e-mail at [email protected]
