Antifoul removal question

Has anyone had any success with the removal of Antifoul without damaging the gelcoat?

Steve

It ain't quite as simple as that..... Is it Bro!?

Even when you pay the going rate for a good job, there ain't so many in the Marine Industry that wana give that good job.

I can second that! Great stuff.

It got through about 10 years of antifoul with 2 applications and a pressure washer - only bit it struggled with was right on the water line where the antifoul was proper hard.

Ok cool .... couple more questions then :o))

Why do you think it struggled with the water line antifoul?

What was the gelcoat like beneath it when removed?

Thanks again

Steve

I used the dilunet stuff on an old Ring, made really light work of the anti foul, but didn't touch the primer (guessing it was epoxy)

I had a chat with the guys from Sparkes marina on Hayling at last years Southampton show because I too need to strip the antifoul from my hull and really don't want to do it by hand.

They said they'd lift it off it's trailer with straps, blast it off at low pressure to avoid any surface damage then reposition the straps to do the last bits.

From what they told me it would be just a couple of hundred quid at a 'slack' time, which sounded really good considering the mess and effort of doing it manually on a 6.5M hull.

I do have the benefit that the person who put the antifoul on many years ago didn't prepare the hull at all, so it's polished underneath and some of it has just fallen off over the years on it's own.
