depending on the location (ie interior/exterior) ive found the typical PO has been lazy in many cases and simply stained over what needed actual TLC. If in the cockpit, or the top of the stern rail i would seriously consider sanding until ive found good wood.... that stinkin mildew finds every crevice (except the those in our pants i hope) and needs to be eraditcated..... then finish as desired.
