I agree with you completely, however, if his goal is to remove the VC without aggressive sanding
and loss of time, this is a cost effective way. I used VC17 on my last boat
for 17 years. If he sails
his boat regularly heading south and scrubs the bottom 2-3 times a month, it will eventually erode to the original substrate and he can haul, sand, paint and relaunch in a day. Good luck and good sailing.
