Actually, I never mentioned anything about something that looks like varnish but not to worry. What I specifically asked was about what people in this area were using since our needs up here are somewhat different with regards to UV protection etc. I think I'm just going to rub down and use some oil on the handrails and transom strip, hopefully in our climate it should mean 6 months or so between a quick scrub and a maintenance wipe over. Or of course I could just replace the handrails with stainless ones. Or just not care.
The hatchboard is going to need a bit more I think.
