I am drying out the boat tomorrow against a pier however, if i power wash the bottom will this strip the antifoul off???
What is the best way to clean off some sluge but not re-antifoul????
She had the latest coat 8 weeks ago but fouling in the area is very high and i am really feeling it on the speed.

The answer is power wash 'gently'! Just use enough pressure to wash the slime off. You will quickly see if you are taking off much antifoul by the colour of the run off. Any alternative method (like scotchbrite etc.) will be worse.

I power washed mine two weeks ago

B&Q less than £100 power washer.

Holding the nozzle within 2 inches and a small amount of AF ( over a year old) came off, holding the nozzle 6 inches away and the slime came off.

Just experiment with it

If you choose a brush/pad etc instead get cleaning as soon as the water is shallow enough to get down there. Wet grime plus a plentiful supply of water makes it far easier.
