i think you might get most of it off with a powerful jet wash/ steam cleaner

Dilunett antifoul remover is the stuff i`ve used in the past. Few coats of this stuff and the bulk of the paint will come off with a pressure washer.

A bitch of a job, I did one once on a 17 ft fletcher to sell on thinking that antifouling on this size of boat is off putting to potential buyers.

Got it all off, it transformed the boat and i sold it the following week to a guy who then stated it would be left on a morring and could i give it a coat of paint for him.

I won`t repeat the language used after he'd gone.

depending on how good the key to the hull a super powerful jet washer will take a lot of i would try this first check with you local boatyard or somewhere else because it reallydoes need to have some power .you could use a antifoul stipper . or use a scarsten? scpraper on it .but you have to be very carful with this as nit to scratch the gel

Well i finally decided to attempt to get rid of the antifoul..

First i tried the "Dilunett antifoul remover" , this was absolute crap tests after 1 / 2 / 4 hrs only partially removed the first coat and didn't touch the undercoat ..... 2.5lt = £26.00 ..

Next on the list was "International Interstrip" 2.5lt = £37.95 , this works "VERY" well, one coat and straight back to the gellcoat, although has to be scraped off (jetwash just seems to move it around) then a final wipe with a 50 : 50 mix of Acetone / petrol its as good as new

Now for the other side
