If scraping it off doesn't work. I know it is not a DIY but if soda blasting would remove it & if you could get it done for a reasonalble price it would Definatly be money well spent ! especially if it has 4 coats of bottom paint on it. Trust me sanding off 4 layers of anything is not much fun especailly if it is overhead sanding such as the bottom of a boat , I don't care what kind of resparator you use the crap will be all over you.

No. On one boat I tried it on, it smeared it around a bit, the other one I tried it on, it just made shiny bottom paint. My advice is to sink the boat.

I scraped on this one for a day, and then rented a pressure washer with a sand blasting attachement. It worked much better, but be careful on covex corners, it's easy to eat through the gelcoat. It was on a trailer, so there was still a bunch I had to scrape and sand off later. Used 550 pounds of sand.

Never again, I don't care how good a deal I think the boat is.
