I would think a good wetsanding or buffing would do the trick. The white looks pretty good

soda blast , sand will destroy the gel . i would sand down instead. i am a certified refinisher in the car industry and would say the best way is to sand and refinish. are you going to tackle yourself or have someone refinish for you???

with out seeing the boat , i would speculate that the hullsides and deck have been cleared, can you feel a thick edge on the graphics?? if you do then it's possible that you can just sand off the scheme and start fresh. what are you looking to do??

soda blasting is a method using baking soda, works really well. attached is a link to give you a idea how it works. we have a local company that does it when we need specialty parts striped. the people here do alot of old corvettes and street rods.

yup, i don't know what it cost on a "per foot " basis. they pretty much do a
" price " for a job. check your local area , i'm sure someone in texas does it. i just attached the link for a web page description.
