Best way to remove barrier coat

Sanding an older boat to the extent necessary to remove the barrier coat is a really bad idea. That kind of sanding produces a lot of heat which can trigger a break down of the resins deeper in the laminate. This provides a mechanism for deeper blisters and delamination to occur. Barrier coats provide not assistance in preventing this kind of blistering.
