J24 bottom questions

Okay, so late last year we ended up buying a J24 in Maryland. The short version is the owner before used some awful paint over the race bottom and we had to rent a compressor to high speed sand the paint off. The bottom was then lightly covered with hydrocoat eco, now I am wondering if I can take all the paint off back to the epoxy bottom. Do you think I will ruin the bottom by sanding it down? If I do, does anyone know about vc performance epoxy. What/how would you handle this situation if it was you doing it.

If your boat has/had a faired epoxy bottom you run the risk of damaging it if you "over sand" in some areas, specially with a powered tool. However, this could be a good opportunity to have a revived new bottom. I would chemically remove the outer paint and then longboard it. It is more work, but probably the only way you can guarantee it will be perfect.
