10’ Lapstrake/Clinker Style Row Boat Refinishing

by Bradly Dearden
(Okanagan bc)

How to best approach refinishing the exterior hull of this lapstrake?

It’s 25+ years old, never touched water, hung in the rafters as a prop, looks like it had been previously oiled?

But hard to tell. When I try sanding the paper clogs up quickly!

I thought of using a chemical cleaner Penofin?

It has many clinch nails and brass droves along the lap making sanding difficult?

Need some advice
