unless you are really good with the belt sander...it will be tough to get a good even finish...the belt will remove a lot of material, and with fiberglass and paint you will hardly feel the damage happening...

Good pressure wash, then Orbital after scraping with a sharp scraper would be my choice..minimal damage and minimal wear and tear on your arms and hands
