Paint Shaver Pro for bottom paint removal

I came upon this video and I was wondering if with the proper adjustments this machine could be used for bottom paint removal.

Wow, one square foot in 20 seconds!

Its expensive at $600, but could easily be sold at the end. This is an aggressive paint remover and it's website states it can be used to remove gel coat for blister repair, so I assume the amount of material to be removed can be adjusted.

Anyone with experience or opinions on this?

Re: Paint Shaver Pro for bottom paint removal

We just did a peel job on a Santa Cruz 50 with one. Do a search for the "Old Warhorse..." thread I posted in refit. Nice tool, nice, fairly smooth result. Lotsa sanding and not really a fast method but it keeps ya from tearing up the bottom.
