She is a beautiful vessel. You were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to view her up close.

I once had a brass plate surround on the front door lock at home. I varnished it after a thorough polish, no wax or silicone of course. It stayed shiny. Would it work on a boat, especially an engine?? Not sure, worth a try though.

Lots of fuel burn numbers are highly skewed for many reasons on the internet.
