First question is how thick is the paint? I am in the proccess of stripping 30+ years off of a 42 and I gotta say it is worth paying a sand blasting team to do it. Breathing the dust from sanding will shorten your sailing lifespan not to mention all the EPA regs you have to deal with. The blasting team deals with all the aggravation of the EPA regs and removal of the "hazardous waste" as well, an your left with clean bottom that all you have to do is re-paint.
