I have been on the forum for a bit, but here is my first post.
A pic of my boat a Duffy 35 heading out of Channel Islands Harbor last weekend.

Welcome, and thanks for posting the picture of a Downeast boat in California. Duffys are great boats. I have a friend who just sold his Duffy 35 within the last year. Just a great cruising boat.

For what it's worth, your boat is "exactly" the one I see in my dreams. It's one beautiful boat!

This is as close as I was able to get to it.

Welcome, Duffy! I bet no one at your marina has got a boat like yours. Nice ride.

Walt, I'd say you got pretty darn close to your dream boat.

Welcome Duffy 35, knock the flybridge off our down east and the boats look very similar. Enjoy the forum and the boat!

What a great picture, I like your teak furniture piece in the cockpit.
The 35 has great best lines. Waht engine do you have?

Welcome aboard. The Duffy 35 is one of my favorite all time DEs.

Do you follow downeastboatforum.com? It is mostly lobster and fishermen, but a few recreational guys. They make fun of my Mainship Pilot 34 as not worthy to be called a DE, but I know better.

I too am interested in what engine you have? DEs take a lot of power and the Cummins 6BTA or a Cat 3208TA will work but I suspect a 6CTA works better. Ski in NC on this forum is another DE owner.

Great looking boat. I owned a Duffy 35 with fly bridge, cat 3208-375. WOT was 24k and cruise at 15k. Sold it to an offer that I just could not turn down.
