I tried many types of blade cause fine wood metal slow fast etc etc took teeth off all of them in seconds...ended up using cutting disk on small angle grinder ..did a great job and very quick...but working area was not confined...bit difficult in restricted space would think....

There used to be blades for the purpose, I still have an old one. No idea if they are still made. It has diamond or tungsten carbide particles bonded to the blade edge. Don't remember it being terribly expensive. I cut new windows in a GK29 and one blade did the lot, plus many other jobs since.

Having earlier fitted a bow thruster use metal blades. Wood ones just burn their way round. Another good tool is the dremel or B&D multitool. Use the reinforced cut off disc, it works wonders!

I have seen a blade that is essentially a rod totally coated with abrasive that I was told was specifically for use on GRP.
Why not ask some boat repairers near you if they use them , and from where they were bought.
