International paints to a stripper specifically for antifouling.

Strangely, it is called Interstrip!

or dilunette gel ( I think that's what it's called)

both it and Interstrip are nasty stuff though, so wear the right protective stuff.

It's also much easier if you can turn the boat upside down, although not easy for most people to do I know

Help yourself along before putting the paint stripper on. Blast it off with a powerful jetwash first.

Some of your local apple brew, it tastes like paint stripper

But wear gloves

I'd leave it on it will be a nightmare to get off and really wont slow you down too much anyway. I'd really not worry about about it I am sure it will be fine it won't slow you down at all I am sure you won't notice any difference.

Leave it on

I have heard of a girl called Michelle from Portishead that can strip the antifoul off the hull of a Rib at 50 paces


Not sure how to reach her though you may need to shine a spotlight into the clouds
