Probably not the bottom! And definitely not mine. I don't even like water spots.

This all depends on how you look at it

I clean mine only once a season. The rest of the season I wipe it down. can't really call it a legit cleaning. If I do get it home ever I will vacuum it.

But the way I look at it, I get it detailed after every season and it shines like brand new ... Even the bottom has an interior that is less than a year old, stereo, tower, rub rail, all new. So it's "clean" if you know what I'm sayin.

Seen your boat Indy. You have mcocd for sure. I was just teasing

I quit beaching when I noticed how flat the v on the bow of my old boat was getting. It took years to get that way, but that was it for me. A friend has a keel guard that seems to work well, but these days I anchor.

Not sure how to describe it best, but the 100 ft line runs from the end of the anchor buddy to shore. I've tied a couple of loops in it- one attaches to the ski pylon, one to the stern/transom loop. There are two more loops tied in the line which I use to allow the boat to float farther from shore for mooring and closer when I need to get on/off. I use a concrete stake on shore to tie off the stern line, hooking the loops over it depending on my needs. As mentioned in an earlier post, use a buoy to mark your line when you're out using your boat.

I have used the anchor buddy for years with no issues. Gives me peace of mind!

the first time I left my boat unattended I slept in it, and it was on a trailer. If you leave it out in the water tied up I could not sleep. I would trailer the boat each night
