Thanks Phil, it's good to know there's another die grinder fan out there.

Realistically, Dennis, you could rent a small air compressor, buy a hose 
and die grinder and take your whole waterline down to laminate in a 
day.  I've watched people with "pox" on old Taiwan 50 foot hulls grind out 
every pocket in less than a week using a die grinder with a 1/2"  round 
flat-head bit.

Grinding it down is easy.  Filling and fairing is the time consuming part.
