I used to be fairly active on this board years ago and was wondering if any of the old 34+ gang were still out there? I still own DV8 and and doing quite a bit of work on her this season. She is out of the water now and has the mast pulled. Changing out all the halyards, having the back stay legs replaced, usual waxing, etc. Also putting a dripless cutless in. I did replace the aft berth this year and finally have a mattress that I can get out of the way to get to the batteries. All in all, after 14 years I still think this is the perfect boat for the NW.
