Ted, I just want to say I have noticed how practical and logical your posts are.

Sounds like the finish on the OP's boat is varnish, but if it's a two part urethane such as Bristol or Perfection Plus, paint stripper will not work well. However, a cheap HF heat gun works wonders. I used a very wide metal spatula as a heat deflector when heating the rounded edge adjacent to gel coat. This rail took about two hours to strip. (The heat gun, scraper, and red handled heat deflector are depicted in the photo...click to enlarge).

Chemicals are hard to fully clean out of the wood if you plan on adding a coating again. Heat guns and a scraper work well, or just a very good scraper.

Here is my favorite so far.

RonR,

Not to start an argument but I have used stripper on boats and commercially for over 50 years without coating issues. Then again, I always scrape clean and sand after.

Here are two shots of my go to scraper. It uses a 1" Red Devil blade you can buy at any hardware store in a two pack. Keep it sharp with the file and the work flies along.

Sea Hawk Marine Paint Stripper 1280 works well, biodegradable, and cleans up with water. Read for yourself.
You can buy on ebay and sometimes on Amazon or other online places.

No arguments here, just a warning to make sure its CLEAN before trying to apply a finish.
