One of our boats I used Peel Away, it's like a wallpaper paste that you either brush or roll then cover with a paper ( supplied ) worked pretty good as long as you let it work and do it with good temps ( the warmer the better ), if a stripper doesn't remove the old finish, just prep the deck,prime and finish

Topsides = the outer skin of the hull between the waterline and the deck, and that's normally resin gelcoat on a plastic boat. Not paint, so paint stripper won't bother it. Oven clear, like lye, will soften and destroy it eventually but gelcoat isn't just cosmetic, it is keeping moisture out of the laminate. You don't normally want to remove it, you would sand/refinish/repair it and then apply a new coating ("paint") OVER it.

Make sure of what you've got before you destroy it.
