Rebel heart & witzgall have used it.
Franmar's Soy Strip

Evidently, “Practical Sailor” liked it, writing:
“... Franmar’s Soy Strip performed the best overall, removing the most paint the fastest ...”

We used the stripper a couple of years ago when we were faced with removing 20+ years of bottom paint from our 34' boat. It worked fairly well, but in the end we found that a scraper and then light sanding was easier and less gruesome. The stripper certainly did soften the paint, making it easy to remove, but it was messy, and kinda finicky in that you have to keep the stuff moist while it does it's job. This meant covering it all with plastic wrap. We still found it necessary to do a light sanding to get to clean gel coat.
