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