I agree. There are many yards around using the farrow system for antifoul removal. It's a combination of high pressure water with some kind of grit medium in there. The medium and water pressure can be altered to suit the actual hull material. If it's done well there will be very little evidence on the Gel coat (if it is Gel).

I used this pasty stuff, think it was called "Dilunet", just painted it on, left it about 2-3 hours and then pressure washed it off and it worked a treat!

2 tubs did my old Ring 21 and it was about 15 a tub...
