    Blue, that hull looks awesome! Even without the final step! Great job!
    I'm trying a 303 spray detail this year. I cleaned and waxed the hull in the fall, and have proceeded with 3 applications so far of spray detail. According to the bottle - and other reviews- it keeps water spots from forming. I'll do it a couple more times before she goes in, in April. The hull looks like new, that's for sure!

    I am back up at the boat again this week. Ohio just lifted their bar curfew this week.... last call is 2:30am. Got to love republican states. Meanwhile in Cali they just banned construction of any new gas stations .... Cheers guys!!

    Yesterday, Alabama (the state) said that they may have herd immunity by April. The University of Alabama said that Bryant-Denny Stadium will be full in the Fall of 2021. This afternoon, Texas opened up--removed mask mandates, seating restrictions, etc. Within minutes, Mississippi did the same. The dominos are beginning to fall.

    I wish! The 24/7 access has me staying...I can get a lot done when it warms up before I launch. I was tempted to do indoor heated up by you...but the extra 2 hour drive and limited access nixed that idea.

    It'll be interesting to see how quickly other states lift their mask mandates now that a few have started...

    The building next to my indoor heated building is a cold building the same size.... every time you pull up there are a number of Honda Generators :eek: running outside the door.... with extension cords going inside...just an idea :)

    Crazy. I have outlets less then 30' from my stern. Hell I leave batteries in the boat and plug her in whenever I stop by so I can have lights and the radio on....but I'll wait for it to warm up! Thankfully, no one else is typically there when I am.

    Another great looking blue hull. Can’t beat the look when serious owners spend serious time (and money) to keep them in mirror-like condition. Nice work!

    I don’t mind doing it when I see great results.... I attribute that to the Dewalt rotary I just bought to replace the Harbor freight special and the 3M pads that are new ...my two year old 3M pads were useless

    Used Meguiar's Cleaner Wax followed by hand application of Meguiar's Flagship Marine. It hurts to type this. I'm pretty pleased being it's my first time.

    Now I have to get the white looking as good as @Blueone's. 20210303_135305.jpg 20210303_135252.jpg 20210303_135241.jpg 20210303_135305.jpg 20210303_135252.jpg 20210303_135241.jpg
