right I bought this antifoul stuff called interstrip from international, the supposedly good stuff, what the hell am I doing wrong?!?

I read the instructions, leave on 10minutes and use wooden scraper may need a couple of liberal applications, fine no problem, tried a couple of times, had petrol and plenty of rags to remove residue,

I took hardly anything off, I most dissapointed and left what looks like a really sticky primer and next to impossbile to shift - the crappy dilinet stuff did a better job?! (the oranage sections) admittedly that was left on 12 hours and kind off furred up so to speak

shall I just use a metal scraper? darker area on hull is what it left, I've got a buffing type drill is there a rough attachment I can get for it does anyone know?

I found the international AF useless too, i used Dilunet covered in clingfilm to stop it drying out.
like yours, fetched all the af off but not the primer, that was elbow grease and 1200grit wet or dry.
thats why one side of my boat is grey, the other tennis elbow half way through
in hindsight getting it blasted might of been easier.
i even tried nitromoors on a small area, that softened the polyester gel coat more than the paint
I am usually not as green as i am cabbage looking.

Use a stanley blade scraper then power sand going down in grades, I assume your not looking for a glass finish as the hull will have to be keyed to take the new antifoul.

Hi, When the antifoul has been removed how do you finish the hull, I have quite a few scrapes & bumps in mine so I’ll have to do some gelcoat repairs first. The boat will be on a trailer so there is no need for antifoul although it will need a coat of something? Is flowcoat the right stuff?
