Thumbs up Need to Strip Back Unknown Black Bottom Paint

Two years ago we bought a Formula 31 SC Express Crouser. We are using it all the time and loveing it. Over the next couple of years we are doing a complete refit. Here is a list of the intendid projects.

-Rebuild 1982 Onan 6.5 Kw Gas Generator
(Need help finding manual & Spec's)
-Building custom fiberglass wraparound Aft seating w/Drop down table
(Queen size bed for outdoor sleeping)
-replace all lighting LED's
-New helm set-up
-Rebuild Carb's, heads on twin 454 Mercs
-Add Wet bar behind helm
-Re-Paint Deck, top side, berrear coat waterline down
-Replace all teak in cockpit
-Polish all aluminum and anodise
-Custom Transom walkthrough
-Replace all clear windows with tinted safty glass
-New head liner
-All new custom cushions in cabin
-Redo all wood work in cabin in Mahogany and Chery
-All new canves top
AND THE WORST ON OF ALL (FIND AND FIX ALL THE WINDOW LEAKS)

All the work except the carbs and heads I will be doing my self.
It's a love of mine

If anyone has any info like manuals for genset or any good ideas it would be great.

Sorry forgot about the bottom paint

Does anyone have a good way to strip bottom paint other then sanding or blasting?

Re: Need to strip black unknown Black Bottom Paint

American International Tool Industries, Inc. LLC | Makers of the Paint Shaver Pro

or use Peel Away covered with visqueen (to keep the moisture in) trowel on, let set for 48 hrs minimum and scrape away, Not effective against telfon style hard paints.

try a heat gun or even a propane torch and a steel putty knife.
