None of my previous boats have had a "brow" like hers, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how I am going to get my buffer and everything else up into the middle and top sections.

I could potentially un-snap the flybridge canvas windows and reach over (ouch) and get down a foot or two that way without toppling down the thing, but how in the heck am I supposed to get the middle portion? Some sort of ladder arrangement?
I have the SAME issue. I can wax to just above the blue strip, then I have to take all my electronics down and lean over the wind deflector to get the last 10 inches of so.

I thought I was the crazy one trying different ideas.

Hey TF any pictures of your contraptions and waxing solutions??

Xsbank, that’s exactly what I thought when I read the title of the thread. Now I’m kind of disappointed in the thread.

Redneck Engineering

The following is due to redneck engineering and a few beers.

All you need are the following:

Adjustable Dock Pole

Duck Tape

Someone to hold the cord so you don't trip on it.

Variable low speed orbital polisher (I use a Shurhold buffer)

Apply compound or polish.

Keep it slow
