I like the look of brass but wonder if it will hold up outside. Maybe with varnish over.

For this boat is the varnish thing is more "Catalina" then the teak oil solution.

Don't think this boat is worth that work. Also there is a issue when the veneer get to the rounded edges.
Good post though. I always forget the veneer option which is a good one sometimes.

As long as it were properly laminated and sealed, why wouldn't it ?

Finish washers

I just varnished those exact pieces on my Catalina. I don't know if the P.O. had done it or what, but mine has always had visible screws with finish washers. Looks just fine to me.
