AFAIK, Barbour does not make its own footwear, so the quality probably varies depending on the contractor used. I would assume that the quality would be reasonable, but it will be difficult to know without seeing the boots firsthand.
Yes, the same shoe care regimen could be used for both types of shoes.
Why not buy boat shoes from a company known for it's boat shoes (like Sperry) and the chukkas from a company known for it's chukkas (Church's, Crockett&Jones, etc...)?
