Yup, stripping brightwork isn't fun. However, I find Bristol Finish will knock down with 60 grit and then finished with 100. If you want to try to remove a coating that is nuclear proof, try to sand Interlux Perfection Plus. Hard as nails. This two part coating is incredibly hard, but is also so toxic when applied, you may not live long enough to need to remove it.

That link tells a story of it failing. Having tons of experience with this, I will attest that any coating failure is always pilot error. I've sworn it wasn't me at times, until I finally figure out what I was doing wrong.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
