Anit fouling paint

Can I use anti-fouling paint to protect my Volvo Penta drive?

If anti-fouling protection is required for the boat hull or boat transom, copper or tin based paints can be used if not prohibited by law. When using copper or tin based anti-fouling paints, you should avoid any electrical interconnection between the Volvo Penta product, the anodic blocks, and the paint.



Sterndrive unit and transom assembly should be painted with a good quality marine paint or an anti-fouling paint that DOES NOT contains copper, tin, or any other material that could conduct electrical current.

Do not paint drain holes, anodes, A QL active corrosion Protection system, or items specified by the boat manufacturer since this will make the galvanic corrosion protection ineffective.
