Roy, the antifouling paint won't have stained the hull, however depending on who applied it, the hull may have been sanded to give a good surface to the paint. Without removing a small area you won't know.

Some people key the hull also to give the primer and antifoul something to grip. If you want a perfect hull, either factor in a sanding and respray in the price, or move on.

Roy,

We had the antifouling on our Ribcraft removed and the hull polished. We used Hayling Yacht Services. They did a fantastic job and the finish was nothing short of perfect.

It is not cheap. You could do it yourself, given availibility of time. The antifouling can be carefully removed with stripper and the hull can be power buffed.

In my opinion, well worth the work.

As jabs says, normally no problem to get done, unless antifouled to cover a crack etc just ensure you get a marine survey done if nit buying from a dealer. You wouldn't buy a 20k car without Hpi check or aa inspection
