It just reveals what's underneath, in my case a nice clean unmarked hull.

Once you break through the top layer its ok, use top of stiff brush. It dried way faster than the instructions suggested so theres a bit of trial and error to get your rhythm.
reckon it will bring my hull back as it was originally as if there was no anti foul on it?

Mine did.
Do a managable size first, if you're happy keep going, if not try a different method.

You have to do a few runs over each area to get through it all. I don't know how much is on your boat so can't estimate that. Keep agitating it while wet and don't let it dry out. You'll get the feel of it quickly.
Get a cloth to wipe off the last layer of "sludge", you'll know when you get there.

FYI - if the original antifouling job was done properly then they will have "keyed" the hull with a good sanding. You'll have to deal with that. Hope they were lazy barstewards....

Anti-fouling grips the hull much better if its "roughed up" a little instead of glossy like shiney gelcoat.
A proper application starts with a rub of something abrasive.

The people who did my boat conserved as much energy as possible so the hull was fine.
When you try the small area you'll see if it was "keyed"

I used 3 or 4 tins of inter strip on a 7.5m. In the end I gave up and left it scruffy. The boat was on a trailer, so it got damaged and more fell off. I thought it would be an easy number as it was all blistered but I spent days on it to get less than half done. Biggest issue is corners and non flat edges, when interstrip fails you will end up scraping manually and will realise anything mildly sharp will removed gel coat on corners or un flat surfaces.

I originally had a quote from arc to soda blast it. It was such a reasonable price I wish I had done it.
