According to the Owner: This boat has been wonderfully maintained without sparing the checkbook. Even the trailer is in superb condition with recently repacked hubs and stainless lug nuts. Unlike fiberglass boats, there is no gelcoat surface to oxidize. They don't absorb water, won't blister, fade or crack. This hull looks brand new and needs no polishing. The seller keeps it looking good with simply some bleach and water. The custom winter cover helps keep the boat out of the element and is easy to cover, no shrink wrapping needed keeping the boat clean in the harshest New England winters.
