    Do you need to remove all the tar? or just some of it?
    If you can flip the boat and treat the "loose" boards, could you leave the tar where it is?

    That is exactly what I am thinking is the best approach at the moment.

    That 'tar' is interesting looking stuff. Not the bitumen based stuff like Duraseal I was thinking of. Maybe tar epoxy??? A heat gun and hook scraper would be my first choice of tools. It may scrape off easily when warm. If it is tar epoxy be cautious. It has a reputation for being carcinogenic.
