    I was told by 2 guys that have owned multiple size Duffy’s that I should stay away from the 35?

    Of course the guys with the 35's would disagree. I would suggest talking to people that really own the hull they like or dislike rather than make a decision on heresay.
    Good luck.
    Hammer Slammer here has a good option for you btw

    Thanks for sending that 31 listing. I’m looking for a fully enclosed pilot house.

    397- 35' Duffys have been built, no other downeast hull in that size range has been more popular or more proven. If you have the money I would prefer the 37 over the 35, but the 35 is in a different league than the 31 Duffy.

    Gents, you're absolutely right. I had another convo with this group of Duffy owners. The 35 is a great hull I should be looking for. I change my WTB to 31, 35 or 37!. Fully enclosed pilot house. Preferably no tower.

    Thank you
