I have read that people improve the appearance of a varnish finish by polishing it with automotive rubbing compound. I use the same stuff to remove difficult oil and grease from the finish of my car, so it would not seem appropriate to use to on varnish on a boat. What am I missing?

I would assume that rubbing compound is far too abrasive to use on varnish.
