Paint chips like that when it gets thick, a barrier coat need have nothing to do with it. With that much paint, I'd be surprised if there is a barrier coat under it - I don't think they were in use many years ago...That's the magice with ablative paint, it wont build up - just repaint as needed.

If you decide doing it by hand is too painful (as it is...) you might get a quote for blasting - maybe a local guy wil be doing some other boats and giver you a deal..
