I'm gonna do a deck job on my '72 Bianchi e Cecchi FD.
The deck was completely redone in 2008 and I haven't touched it since.
In general it still looks quite good, but when locking closer the varnish has cracked on certain spots.
I organized a workshop this winter so I have all the facilities I need.
I have never done a whole varnish removal before so what can you advice me to do?
Sand down to the wood? Etching?
What new varnish to use?
The guys who redid the deck advised me to use this: Nautilus Polyurethan Enamel 2 Component (it's an Italian thing).
It's a beautiful boat and I want her to stay just that way.
I'll do some optimization of the fittings as well but nothing big.
The boat leaks quite a lot so I'll try and fix that as well.
Here some pictures of the "problem zones"
