Belt Sander for Hull stripping???

I did a search,but couldn't come up with anything definitive.....

I am going to be stripping off the ablative bottom paint on my boat and was wondering if a belt sander would be faster than an orbital sander? WHen I first rebuilt this boat 3 years ago, I spent countless hours stripping off the ablative paint with an orbital. I should have put on VC-17 back then, but had some ablative in the garage from a previous project. Anyway, waht are the drawbacks of using a belt sander for this?
