Removing and restoring paint

alright well the paint on the deck of my contessa definitley needs to be removed and repainted with a non-skid surface It was orginally white and was painted over with light blue but the blue is peeling and faded. I have been looking at products to do this such as peel away and certian marine paint thinners and I am interested in hear your opinons and experiences with these products.

The paint on the hull is what I would like to try to bring back to life. It is faded but seems like it could shine again. There are so many waxes and products for this and again I would like to hear opinons and experiences with these products

PS-She is startin to clean up already

For a non toxic stripper that won't harm fiberglass/gelcoat try Aqua Strip

I've used it with good results. - but digging all that paint out of the original non skid pattern could be interesting.....

I used peel away on our last boat and was pretty happy with the result

Getting ready to do this one, so I'll soak up the advice on this thread
