Buit if you're lucky and it hasn't been keyed before application.......

I've just removed half of one side of mine in about an aftenoon with an assortment of paint scrapers, did a trial sanding with wet'n'dry using ever increasing grade on the first few feet, and apart from a couple of deep gouges in the gelcoat hidden by the antifouling, it has come up remarkably well.

There are a few companies that use blasting with bicarb of soda, leaves a better finish than sandblasting (can be polished back to a decent shine) and isn't too expensive.

The best way to clean ti all off is to use Dry Ice/CO2 blasting - very little mess either. There are more and more firms appearing offering this service.
