I pulled out all of the interior wood and have stripped/refinished. Question: When I put the wood back into the boat should I use any caulking or sealant in the screw holes? Thanks.

Yes, you should. I would stay away from silicones. When wood is involved, that can create mre problems. I would use a product like Interlux Boatyard Bedding Compundd or something similar.

What did you use to refinish, etc.?

Nothing fancy. The mahogany was in rough shape. I had all the wood professionally stripped (a little expensive but worth it). I then power sanded the wood and filled some small holes/cracks with wood filler. Last step was several coats of a good marine varnish (about $75 per gallon - can't recall the brand) with the first couple of coats thinned.
