Removing foul

Time Bandit has been lying in Portishead Marina for a few days now and having left her there for a week once before I know that as I dont have antifoul on the hull it will have started to get a covered in little spots of foul (Feels slightly rough when you run your hand over the gelcoat).

Last time I just used a sponge with a scouring pad on one side to remove it but it was a realy ballache lying on my back under the trailer.

What is the best stuff for cleaning of this foul with minimum elbow grease

Always found a good jetwash works fine. If it can take old antifoul off the hull of 28ft yacht, back down to the gel as we have found, then it should get the scum off.

I hate it when it's in every nook and cranny of the leg of the outboard
