Getting rid of Anti foul

Well I have brought her home. She is a Bat Griffo with a 60hp Mercury and I will be showing pics of her shortly.
She has been in the water all summer and was anti-fouled. She will now be on a trailer and I need to paint the hull. Question is how do I remove the anti foul which is still in situ? Apparently there is stuff on the market which you paint on and wash off the following day. Anyone know what it is and if it is that easy to use?

Noddy, Try "Yachtpaint.com" I had a book from them and I seem to remember they had a product that did it. Hope to see her soon.

Removing gunge

I used a product called Stripit this year on my yacht, I have tried all of them over the years as this one part of my job (that I hate!). I dont think any of them are elbow grease free. Stripit did work the best but she still needed scraping and wet 'n drying to get it completly sorted. For this part you might be best off finding a student that needs some cash, I paid my student mate 50 to wet 'n dry and scrape, that seemed to work quite well on several occasions.

Thanks Steve - Does your student need any more pocket money?
Looks like it is elbow grease time for me?
