Anti foul is next to get removed then compound and polish the GRP.

Can anyone shed some light on what may have caused this staining and is it possible to remove it? Click image for larger version

Looking good. What will you use to get the antifoul off? Looks very similar to mine and I'm trying to work out the best way to shift it.

Ideally Iíd like to get it soda blasted but it doesnít look like the hull was keyed before the anti foul was applied.
That being the case Iíll just try one of the commercially available removers.

Some of it was flaking off when it was power washed. I had been told to try acetone so may give it a go first.
