If you can't polish it, paint it.
If it doesn't move: polish it, if you can't polish it, paint it, if you can't paint it, Salute it.
Thankfully, I can paint Spark, I would feel odd saluting my ancient GP14. After all the cleaning and primering, I am finally halfway done painting the bilge and ceilings of my little boat I would have gotten the whole thing done, but I was kind of painted into a corner as I needed to let this paint sit and harden before putting any weight on it.
Rustoleum's "Oyster white" definitely looks the part on a fifty-five year old boat. Just "antique" enough to not be jarring to the senses. Once I have the floorboards back in place and the foam flotation finished up and screwed to the sides, there will not be much to see, just enough to make her look clean and cared for.
