Removing antifoul

Found this out by accident recently, while working on a gel repair on a friends boat.Using actone on a cloth completly removes antifoul and primer, no sanding right down to the hull gel coat, no expensive paint stripper needed, and it evapourates from the surface quickly too.

Guys

Please be careful, I worked in the Gravure print industry long enough to know what solvents like mek etc can do to you.

At the very least, without decent protection they will dry the skin on your hands to a point where they will crack allowing in infections and possibly causing future problems with your skin.

At the worst, your nob will fall off.

Don't laugh, if you need a pee halfway through the job do you always remove all traces of the solvent from your hands before handling the bits with the delicate skin? Not a good place to end up with skin cancer.

I'm not being alarmist, I've seen the training films and seen the state of some printers before they retire.

I going to take it as read that your working in a well ventalated area and not near a possible source of a spark. Electric drill for example!
