Well, it's been a long time since I helped butcherin a hog but I would forget about the electrocution idea. Shoot him.
As far as the scalding, get it just as hot as you can. Are you going to use rosin to get off the bristles? That's the only way I've ever seen it done. Also, I would not leave the carcas in too very long. The idea is not to cook it but to loosen the bristles. Kind of like preparing chickens for pickin.
