Stripping “Bristol” wood finish?

I put Bristol on the transome cap rail over ten years ago. Very happy with the product, but it’s time to remove and replace (with Bristol). Anyone advice on removing these hardened urethane products?

When we need to repair an area, we just sand it off (also love Bristol). Start w/80, go to 120, finish w/ 220

Shouldn’t take much work. Bristol is very thin unless there’s 20 coats.

So the hand rails on my 36 GB have Captains varnish in very good shape. (Boat is new to me) Maybe I should try 6 coats of Bristol? Bristol says that it can be applied over Varnish. Anyone done this? 36-48 month re coat in Northern latitudes sounds sounds very desirable.
