    When I see the word varnish I always think of the brightwork on my sailboats.
    Sadly the word polyurethane does not have the same effect.

    sail boat?? really???? I cant do sail boats, just too slow for me,Ive been on a few kinds fast ones( well the owners said they were fast) I know some people that race them, my crazy sister set a world reckord back in the 90's ,I think it was la to Australia or something like that. she was supposed to do another on the same boat a few years lator, a week before she was to set sail it went up in flames. I used to machine&build engines and maintain lots of ***** boats.I ran a 40' douglass skater,lake X record holder one time just over 150 mph in the bay (blow ninnercooled big block chevy powered x2),I just re worked the top end and it needed test drive...I miss doing that stuff.) I would of pegged you for a motor boat...speed boat guy. but yes I understand the poluyrathane.... VS real bright work.

    Unquestionably what the character meant saying "I used to run the Gulf in that speedboat's grand-daddy".
