I'm very close to getting my 15' Lyman back in the water.
I made new splash/rub rails out of African mahogany and will finish bright. To make removal easier I'm not going to bung the screw holes. How can I tarnish the silicon bronze to make it look weathered. I think this would look nicer than the shinyness of new SB.
Also, putting new brass halfoval on the stem. I want this to be polished up. Would it make sense to spray a clear lacquer on it?
