vc 17 antifoulant

I hauled my boat in the fall and it had vc17 put on by a previous owner.The bottom looked like a mussel farm.I know this has teflon and trying to repaint this with something that I know works will probably cause a lack of adhesion.Do I have any problems ahead?

You can ''revitalize'' VC17 by taking a short knapped paint roller and rolling on plain acetone and keep rolling until you ''redistribute'' the VC17; this assumes that the VC17 still has sufficient Copper powder left. Test the VC17 by taking hard newsprint, balling it up and then ''burnishing'' the surface - if it turn ''coppery'' then you probably have enough Copper still there. Otherwise, you will have to remove it entirely as the PTFE base will not allow adhesion to ANY other marine paint (''cept PTFE based paints).
