View Full Version : Removal of anti foul

Hi All
Wonder if anybody has a recipe for the removal of anti fouling paint? I really dont want to use an abrasive (as I used to on my yacht), but a chemical that will quickly and easily remove the flaking anti foul on the GRP power boat bottom without causing any damage to the gel coat. Regards, Bob

Baking soda blasting will remove the paint and not touch the gelcoat.

The latest issue of BoatUS had a full article on anti-fouling paints. Apparently there is no chemical colution. See http://www.boatus.com/boattech/BottomLine.htm. The suggestion by Chris is your best bet.
