Pretty Duffy, she sits nice and high at the water line. Great scupper to water line distance.
Keep her light and she will run like a deer.
Yes the platform does not belong on you DE. I hate drifting in 15+ knots as the swim platform slaps the water and scups up water into your face.

Yes Still available but I didn't get around to yanking it off before it got wrapped this winter. I'm guessing its over 10 ' 5" . Can't find any good pics. This is the only other one.ill measure this week.

Nice stern tumble home shot. The lady has nice hips. Nothing is prettier on a DE than a tumble home stern.

Taking off the platform will be easy, The brackets I would use great care. Once the bolts are removed get a heat gun and soften up what most likely is 5200 sealant. The last thing you want to do is to pull off the glecote.

Filling the holes to be discussed once the brackets are off. Your Duffy stern is most likely solid glass. You may need to lay a little mat on the inside, bevel the holes and push in Merton’s Hull & Deck Puddy. The product is amazing and very user friendly.

Cap the rub rail the ¾ hollow back stainless steel it gives a great look and will save the rub rails in years to come. Also a nice set of ¼ guards would look very pro & protect the hull laying dockside.

When the boat is in the slip i enter over the transom some of my charter clients are older and have a hard time getting on board. Are you still looking to move up? Did I read you might think about a possible trade untill you get there?

Gotta save some more claims to move up to what I want.

FYI I should of been more clear. This platform was designed to be removed easily, the mounts will be staying on the boat, these can be replaced cheaply. The stainless supports will be with the platform.
