Sand/buff/wax advice

I'm wanting to sand/buff/wax my hull while we're in the off-season. The overall condition is not bad but it does show some caked on lake gunk underneath and some oxidation throughout. I've never done anything like this before but am not afraid of hard work. I have a Black and Decker MegaMouse sander/polisher.

Can someone please give me a step by step of what I should do, including: supplies, techniques, tips, number of beers required to do the job, etc.

Also, the boat is sitting on the trailer in my garage. How do I get to the areas that are out of reach due to fenders or bunks?

Thanks!
