Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

Some things don’t change do they? Moderns can rust just as bad as Marinas, and in 1/4 of the time.

Re: Spark plugs

A chip like that is most likely to have been caused when the plugs were fitted or removed, it looked like a “percussion” chip, where the ceramic nose has been caught creating a weak spot. Then the heat/cold cycle has opened it up until the chip came off.
