New Dufour 34

Check out the Dehler 34. Narrower beam and more expensive but better built and more of a "sailors" boat. You get more "stuff" with the Dufour.

Waxing New Hull

Thanks for the input. I will definitely be waxing.

Waxing New Hull

I have a new boat with a blue hull. Should I wax it? I have heard different opinions. Boat seller says I should. Guy who has a fleet of boats says it''s not necessary. Opinions?
