its a really nasty bas---d job...I used international interstrip and paintbrush, also one of those green scourer pads,the interstrip will remove the foul ,,when you get to the primer,it wont touch it.. i found that white spirit and a course plastic or synthetic scourer really was the only way of removing it
When the primer has been removed . it may have been keyed in..if it has been keyed in, then electric polisher with farcla course rubbing compound or 1200 grit sandpaper to finish

took me 2 days to do complete up turned hull

Nah, I decided that if I wanted the boat useable this side of next milennium I better pay someone else to do it!

They have sufficient frames & braces that they could support it upside down with the console clear of the floor.

Will acetone /interstrip affect engine leg paint?

Anti foul is pretty toxic stuff and can do alot of harm! MAY EVEN account for 'one or two' on here!
Resurecting this old thread......want to remove antifoul from an old engine leg....

Might be stupid question, but will the interstrip /acetone approach also remove the leg paint itself or just the antifoul?

If anyone can help would be much appreciated...otherwise might just sand and get it resprayed.

Thx

Im half way through antifoul stripping and am getting close to giving up. Spent 3 whole days on it, in the past I tried interstrip but it needed more force from the scraper than I wanted, plus my boat has alot of curved surfaces risking damage.... I hoped to leave the boat un antifouled after, now ive used two coats of dilunet and its probably only shifted about 40%. But it wont touch the primer, NOR will acetone.....

I have half a tin of interstrip to try, possibly with a scourer, after that i give up. ANY tips please

some good stuff to use is Nautix paint stripper, you can get it from the nautix uk agent, Marineware ltd, in southampton under the toll bridge.

the stuff is very good, i have done on 6.5 m rib with it and am about to do another.

you paint in on, cover it with tin foil, leave it about 4 to 6 hours and then scrap off!!! then give a quick wipe down with some gun wash / cellulose thinners (about 7 per 5 litres) and you are back to gel coat!!!

i had quite a few layers of antifoul on my rib, 2 applications and done, in total i think a day and a half, so over a weekend, no worries!!!

if you want anymore info, please ask...
