Dickerson 35

Hi Jim,
I have had a wood Dickerson 35 for over 15 years and have taken it down to bare wood. I used a sander with 80 grit paper and changed the paper often. Then went up to 100. I finished it off by hand with a flexible long board. Sand in a X pattern over an area and then fiinsh sand lengthwise. First with 150 grit, a couple of primer coats and then 220 before the finish coats.

For paint, I have used Interlux with good success. The newer one part paints are easy to work with.

We have an active association that features an annual rendezvous in Oxford, MD. We also have a group of us in the northeast. Please vist our website.

All the best,

John Freal
