For antifoul stripper do a search for reactive resins and use their stripit product. It's nasty stuff on your skin but does exactly what it says on tin!

Edinburgh - Hayling is a bit of a trek!

Yep! (on both counts!)

HAving said that if you can turn the boat over and don't have spray rails it might not be as bad.

Dry Ice (CO2) blasting might be an option. The lads are in Glasgae: Linky

Don't take on the job yourself, you'll be calling the Samaritans after a week...

Oh, sorry. Is that the one where they wear skirts with little integrated handbags and toss their poles?
