Yep, hard work.
The previous owner of my boat had antifouled all the (white) hull, so it was a foul (!) Blueish mess.
I used International antifoul remover, a paint brush, a car ice scraper (the rubber follows the curves of the hull) and a cloth to wipe the hull clean for the last layer.
It worked really well and the boat looks way better.
I only cleaned above the waterline but I assume the below water stuff is easier as its somewhat eroded and therefore less intact.

Only in a really well ventilated space.

You do get an anti foul remover, I'm considering having it soda blasted, lad that does it reckons a couple hundred quid.

Sounds like a bargain!

have you been using anti foul remover? does it remove the anti foul paint well and bring back the original hull colour as if it was never on there?

Don't know yet, plucking up the courage to start it.

International Interstrip

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.
