stripping paint
I have an Iroquois 30 that I am refurbishing. I want to strip the interior down to the fiberglass to remove the old paint. What products and or procedure should I use - sandblasting, chemicals???

If you can afford it, I would recommend getting the interior sodablasted. Sandblasting will likely damage the interior, where sodablasting will not.

what about wood ??? my entire cockpit is 1" strips of oak that some one with the soul of a cheap prostitute painted & looks like others followed suit .

I think it depends on the wood...but if it isn't a softwood, like pine, then I think the sodablasting would be okay...YMMV, and you should probably talk to the sodablasting vendor. :)
