If you have ever had to remove the anti-foul from your boat you will know what a thankless task this can be. With our service we can offer a tried and tested means of removing the anti-foul leaving a clean and keyed surface ready for inspection and re-treating. Due to the low pressure used in our machine (28 -32psi) and the choice of very fine and soft mediums allows removal of this very tough coating without the risk of damage to your hull. This process takes normally one day on most vessels (24ft) so saves tremendous labour and time.
The area around your vessel is curtained with sheeting to contain the medium used and the anti-foul removed. Heavy polythene is laid over the floor area to catch the falling debris, this aids in the comprehensive and thorough cleaning of the area your vessel is stored.
All waste is removed and disposed of by ourselves.
The hull is left clean and free of all stubborn anti fouling paint, this is then ready for a fresh new coat of anti-foul. This same process can be used on wooden hulls leaving them ready for paint or varnish. All mediums used by ourselves are environmentally friendly.
Here you can see a 46ft dive boat having the anti-foul removed for complete refit in Dartmouth, Devon. As you can see in the picture, any existing repair can be seen clearly without damage. This enables full inspection and repair of the hull for insurance purposes.
This 23ft yacht can be seen sheeted during anti-foul removal. Our policy is to leave the area as clean as we arrived.
This Defence Police 24ft response boat required a number of repairs to the hull. This was made easier by all contamination of existing paint and anti-foul removed from the hull. This saved on time and money for the repair team.
