I know your pain. The PO over varnished every edge on the whole boat, like in the photo below. This was a bad spot, but it is everywhere! How many linear feet is there on both sides of varnished surfaces on a 30' boat
*Note to self: buy good masking tape and make sure it's sticking!!!!!!
Nature has been dealing with removing most of the old varnish (with some scraping help from me when areas start to delaminate) while I deal with more important boat issues and complications of Life. This is the summer to deal with it, so appreciate your timely question
