I have a 7 year old cumaru deck that I have been cleaning, brightening and staining every 12- 18 months with Messmer's Natural UVPlus.  It has become darker and darker. I decided to strip it this year with RAD stripper. The results have been uneven. Some areas remain fairly dark. I've have stripped and brightened the whole deck, then stripped and brightened the dark spots.  I'm sick of working on the deck, and this week promises perfect weather for staining.

Is there any harm in going ahead and staining and trying the process again next year, perhaps with the booster and the gel?
