Y10 is Oxalic Acid at a Marine Price. Oxalic acid is available on ebay for buttons.

What sort of mix is recommended and should you begin dissolving the Oxalic Acid crystals before adding the wallpaper paste or both together? Elsewhere, I've seen a suggestion of 50g per litre in warm water then add 1.5 tablespoons of the paste when cooled. Also, how best to apply it and how much coverage do you get? Goggles and gloves seem to be thoroughly recommended!

Thanks for any advice.

Or you could bring it to KB Boatpark and have it lifted, pressure washed, put on a dolly for you to Y10 / acid clean it, re-pressure washed and re-launched for the princely sum of 90!
