Thanks. So is pretty much the only way to clean old paint off un-clearcoated laminate to strip it? I've done two applications of Citristrip and its working much faster on the clearcoated deck (which is almost done) than it is on the cockpit flooring/benchs/etc. I'm wondering if I should focus on sanding those or if that's too risky for thinning the laminate.

You can sand "to" the laminate. If worried about strength, you can always add a layer of epoxy+cloth once you've sanded everything down.

More reasons to do all this work only when ready to do it well & complete.
