Removing anti-foul

Is there a safe way to remove anti-foul without damaging the tubes?

Apologies if this is already been answered somewhere - my tablet won't let me use the search facility.

In guessing you mean hull and toobs or just the tubes?
Either way. A powerfull jet washer to remove 20% or however good or bad it may be and international antifoul remover and a scraper. Either way its a foul job!
May need a couple of goes then finish off with white spirit and a scourer works well. This goes for the tubes as well.
A 5.5 meter hull takes a couple of days. Approx.. if the foul has been keyed in then could take longer. Copper coat antifoul may not come off completely

This way worked for me but there will be less labour intensive ways im sure

Thanks. At the moment I'm removing it bit by bit using the back of my jacket whenever I tie the cover on.

I wasn't sure if chemicals would be OK on the tubes, but I'll give it a go if it worked for you.
