The paint on the bottom of my boat is 3 layers thick and it has been extremly difficult to take it off. does anyone have any tips of removing this paint. i tried a hand sander, as well as paint scrapers. any suggestions?

A good power washing. If you have a 'soft' paint, you should power-wash it once a year and remove as much as possible. If its a multi-year paint, best way I've is an electric sander and a paint scraper. Wear a mask and goggles with gloves!!

Sand blast. Never done it myself. Usually I just hand scrape and paint. Probably have 20 coats on my bottom
