Bleaching Riviera center section

Any recommendations on where to buy, brand, or type of bleach to be used on the mahogany centerboard. This is my first time trying my hand at the restoration of a boat

I like Lite-N-Up wood bleach. Available from wood floor supply store. So far I have only found it in gallon jugs so you will have plenty. It is a two part process.
