I'll bet it tasted even better in those surroundings!
On topic, I wonder if there's a good polymer wax for boat hulls out there. It's been a long time but I used to apply polymers to cars for cash on the side. The rust resistance and finish protection was pretty amazing. In fact the dealership guys had me do their own private cars after the customer testimonials.
After a quick google search it would seem that there are some with names like Liquid Glass and Kiss-Cote. I have no direct experience with them since I sold my boat and won't own another until the kids are past college age.
