Interesting concept your friend uses Stan. But, dosen't the heavy coat of unbuffed wax harden up, making buffing difficult - or impossible in the Spring? We have all experienced what happens to wax, if we apply it to the entire boat (or car), then try to buff it off. It becomes a real bear to remove.

Wax

TB - I suppose my posting was rather useless without the name of the wax he uses. I just checked my archives and he called it - 'Kit paste wax'. I don't know that brand myself and I know what you mean about some waxes being impossible to buff after they harden.

I just came back from my boat near Annapolis. There was some ice on the side decks and in the cockpit - but nothing major. Boom tent helped keep cabin top clean. Didn't seem like a major issue at all.

I was glad to find my boat completely dry inside - not a drop of water anywhere. Say what you can about Beneteaus, but these things definitely keep water out - at least from above

No need to apologise, and hope my response didn't seem curt. There are an awful lot of boats that don't get covered. Up here in Ontario, the winters are quit cold and we get a lot of back forth from water to ice. I am still amazed and a bit disappointed when I see a boat left open to the elements up here. It's a bit of work, but covering the boat for the winter is about the number one thing you can do to protect your investment.
