C-27 Keel Questions

Hello all,
We found a C-27 that has been on the hard for a couple of years. Things from the outside look ok except the keel and bottom paint. The photos show some strange staining on the aft starboard portion of the keel (nothing on the port side) and a "Catalina smile" that is about 2ft on each side.

1. What is staining that on the aft portion of the keel?
2. Can the smile be fixed or should we just walk away now?
3. What is the glossy silver stuff under the bottom paint? Barrier coat?

Thanks in advance.
