Gel Coat Antifouling Trouble
I've got a Ribcraft that has had various forms of antifoul poorly applied in the past.
With some success I've used Owatrol Anti Foul remove, painted on, covered in cling film, left overnight and power washed and scraped off to remove over 90% of the antifouling.
However I'm left in places with a very fine pale blue colour left behind which I cant remove.
Antifoul remover doesn't touch it, nor does acetone, thinners, a scraper, a sharp blade
Only method to remove that seems to work is wet wet and dry paper, followed by farcela No 6 paste on a polisher, followed by Autoglym resin wax polish.
There must be something easier or at least a 1 part compound that would do this. I'm reluctant to go too heavy with the wet and dry paper!
1st photo shows small part I have cleaned sucessfully as above, second photo shows typical condition of rest of the hull
Would appreciate any advice
