Default Removing 50 year old carpet from 1973 SeaCraft bow gunnel

Hi, I have a 1973 Potter Built SeaCraft and recently parts of the carpet have been tearing away so I have made the decision to try and remove the carpet all together. I started to take it up and I was using some Bar Keepers Friend (my favorite soap) and some mineral spirits; The part that I've done has come out awesome the only problem it I spend about 20 minutes doing about 1 square foot and I'm scrubbing full force for that entire time. I was wondering if any of you have tips on how I should approach this differently to make it go faster and easier on my arms or any removal product suggestions. Thanks

I did it to my Bertram 25. I got very sick.

Wear a respirator!!!!! 50 years of mold, mildew and decay.

Learn from my pain.
