Yes, just wear proper respirator with VOC filtering... Soy Strip and some others have worked fairly well and are less toxic than the more traditional strippers. Be sure you get a "fiberglass" safe paint stripper.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

jrd22 will become famous soon enough
I've been using a 3M "safe" stripper to remove varnish on teak and it has worked very well. The fumes are not bad at all, I don't think you would have a problem using it inside the boat. I've used regular strippers and this seems just as fast and a lot more pleasant to work around.
