Best way to remove barrier coat

Thanks Allen

I had talked to Interlux Technical support and they said that they have no product to remove their Interprotect barrier coat. They suggested sanding.

As there is almost no antifouling and just the barrier coat I am leaning toward sanding. Having sanded two seasons ago to smooth this coat I realize it is not going to be fun.

What exactly is a "vacuum sander"? I am wary of using a grinding disk as that can damage the hull as it is so aggressive. Maybe I am wrong on this?

Thanks again,


.. and thank goodness it is only 26 and not 40 feet!
