Re: Worn Topside Paint - can it be stripped?
Put some acetone on a rag and wipe it across the paint in an area that won't look worse for it. If color comes off, it is probably acrylic (like awlcraft). If not, it is probably an LP paint (like awlgrip).
If the fenders literally rubbed through the paint, to the hull, I'm going to bet its acrylic, which is much softer. The good news is it is more easily repairable. However, from the sound of the abuse, I would strongly recommend a complete do over.
Fleece fender covers are mandatory, if your hull is painted.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
