One Drop - For Anything Rolling
A liquid lubricant ideal for application in ball bearing cars and blocks. A common misconception with many sailors is to lubricate blocks with a dry lubricant. While this offers fantastic performance in short term it creates problems, the dry lubricant can over lubricate the bearing race causing the balls to slide rather than roll leading to flat spotting of the bearings and long term friction. One Drop has been developed as a ball bearing conditioner, applied a small amount to a bearing race conditions the balls covering them in a thin film which achieves key properties;

  • Reduction in friction
  • Reduced ball skidding and flat spotting
  • Repels salt and dirt for longer free running

Hullkote - Hull, foil and spar polish and protection.
The ultimate hull finish, environmentally friendly citrus based hydrophobic polish designed for an easier, faster coating application. Hullkote is produced using the same active ingredient suspension as Sailkote to create the same durable chemical bond for longevity.

The polish gives the ultimate in long term protection from dirt, grim and salt. A single application lasts a full year above the waterline and 20 days hard use below the waterline, all with the added benefit of UV protection.

Key in the design process was to make Hullkote fast and easy to apply, the outcome is a simple process of wipe on and straight off, no waiting for it to dry.
