I'll have to look up top kote, sounds interesting.
Yeah, WD40 or even Armor All type dressings work well. Just dust everything with it and call it good. Same with underhood on the vehicles.
For exposed to the elements or corrosive areas, Fluid Film works great. It's lanolin based. I use it mainly on my sleds since they're basically stored in a tin can (trailer), lots of condensation/moisture. Keeps snow from sticking as much too.
I would use that stuff if the boat is stored outside. If stored inside, it's not necessary as it leaves a much heavier film on everything.
