I agree, all effort should be towards having it blasted. If it's not feasible, a large scraper and a good sander/vacuum can do it. Spilt the job into days/weeks because it is a lot of hard work. I still would prefer doing it this way then chemicals that would be overhead and dripping on you.

I attempted one time to strip the bottom of my boat due to poor prep prior to painting. Too much work, too little success.
Had South Coast Soda Blasting clean hull, well worth the $. Coat of barrier and two coats of Micron CSC black.
Zero problems since.
In addition, I don't paint my hull every year, too much build up.

If you decide to sand it buy or rent a drywall sander. They hook shop vac and have some reach to it. Keep you off your back for awhile.

Depending on how much space there is around the boat, I can sandblast inside no problem. What is your location?

When they blast it have them move the stands around to get under them. Good luck

What is the size of your boat? That sounds fair. I’m around $45/foot for bottom paint only
