Where to start....1956 Century Resorter 16 ft
I just bought a 1956 Century Resorter.
Great interior, solid bottom, but I really want to refinish the hull.
Her deck has teak and the usual white caulking, which needs to be touched up.
Where do I start to remove the existing varnish and stain, and do I use a product or orbital sander to get down to the original wood?
Am I looking at the process in the correct stages?
The bottom solid and is painted with antifouling and will probably get another coat of the copper/bronze antifouling because I like the look it gives the red in the mahogany.
Here is a pic of the old gal, "Savvy?"
Thanks in advance for the help.

While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
