It also has a nice bit of weight which seems to help. I found a sharp 2″ wood chisel and a Sandvik pull scraper a good combination. Didnt have my Lidl jobbie with me on the day , but I have so many chines I m not sure I’d have used it. You don’t need much either. You may find that you need a different tool in different places.

So get a few spare blades, we found about hours of scraping was about the limit before it a new blade was needed.
Various scrapers are out there, Pull scrapers, Bosch electric, etc, which do we think best for removing old antifouling? I found that a heavy 2″ chisel ground down to a square end worked well in places. Cost about a tenner with a spare blade so 4 edges altogether.
Looks like I am going to go for a Bahco scrapper, and lanolin for the hands!
I bought the Hamilton because they used to make paint brushes near where I used to work and those were reckoned wt be classy brushes. And think of that nice slinky bottom you will have gliding through the sea this season.
Buy one and try. I found 3 hour sessions were plenty enough for this job. It also has a nice bit sscrapers weight which seems to help. I know – I removed a few square feet for him!
Sandvik with the 2inch blade. I’m sure the Sandvik will be better but it is more expensive. The two blades double sided were enough to scrape the hull on my 26 footer then lend the tool to someone else. I found a sharp 2″ wood chisel and a Sandvik pull scraper a good combination. bq&
I bought a Harris wallpaper scraper which is cheaper than the Sandvik one, but accepts the expensive Sandvik blades. Didnt have my Lidl jobbie with me on the daybut I have so many chines I m not sure I’d have used it. These blades are made of tungsten. Would be nice to wear gloves if you remember.
You don’t need much either. You can alternate between the two when your shoulders get tired. Google ” Linbide Scraper” Used by painters at work they are so effective that burning off paint has not been done for years. You need to blunt the two corners otherwise it will dig in very easily.
A sharp triangular scraper is also effective. It can be tempting to soldier on with a blunt blade because of the cost which isn’t that much really and because the degradation is subtle, but a sharp blade makes the stuff come off much more easily. I’ve never been accused of that before! Only one scraper is worth the bother. I think that the pull scraper are they made by Bahco? Harris was slightly more expensive.
Don’t suppose an ordinary grinding wheel will be much good. D Pete knows what he’s talking about – he spent most of last year trying to remove about 20 layers of anti-fouling from the bottom of his boat. The corners are sharp and some care is needed but this sharp edge is part of what makes them so effective.
paint scraper – which one? [Archive] – Yachting and Boating World Forums
You are right up there now! I did later try in on the stern, and it was dead easy. I don’t know of an easy way to remove anti fouling.
This tool is the nearest I can find to the much missed Skarsten scraper.
