Re: Sanding Goals

Sanding it smooth helps the aesthetics yes, and also provides a 'key' for the paint or varnish to adhere to. Also you'll be reducing drag, and (slightly) reducing the weight. I'm not sure what stage you are at, but by all means do it now. In fact, it's quite a good idea to sand between fill coats as well, leaving a less daunting smoothing job at the end.
