Re: How unsafe would this be for occasional heat?

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Based on this I don't see any problem with the underwriter, adjuster, surveyor or insurance broker. What do you expect them to do without estimates ?

Re: What would cause this?

It may be just odd lighting in the photo but that key looks more like brass than bronze.
