I'll post some pics when I get back later today. I have a 72 tartan 30 and am looking to redo and fix up the interior. The wood is peeling and I assume there is not easy way to re varnish it without making a mess. Do I just have to bite the bullet and sand everything down and make the mess or is there some easier way? Open for ideas.
A picture would be very helpful to show what the issue is. Peeling varnish or peeling veneer? Big difference.

You might try 3M Safest Stripper - it's a non-toxic chemical stripper which doesn't produce horrendous fumes. It takes a while to work, but it does work. I would try that, together with a cabinet scraper.

Don't use a simple paint scraper - you can put big gouges in the wood. You need a carbide scraper or proper cabinet scraper.
