I wax the entire hull twice a year. I wax the gunnels and topside more often. Wax protects and seals. If the hull has a color, it must be waxed to avoid oxidation. I like my boat to look shiny.

After my son died I quit trout fishing. I had too much time to contemplate. A decade or so later I started fishing the salt, but never alone. I enjoy offshore fishing primarily because it allows me...
