I'll be watching this post as I'll be doing the same on my toerail.
So far I am leaning towards the 1/4 sheet sander as it has 4 flat sides, even though it is orbital, it should be able to do the job. Problem is when you get too close to the hull, and my idea is to mask the fiberglass with the wide blue masking tape then cover this tape with gorilla tape. This way the fiberglass will not be harmed. Reason for the blue tape? Gorilla tape is very sticky and may leave a residue, with the blue tape underneath it would be easy to peel back when the job is finished.
