      I’m not sure about a 56, but my Defever 49 RPH is maneuverable enough. I moved up from a Tollycraft 37, which is much lighter and more...

      SeaDogAK replied to the thread Dark blue liquid in bilge.
      I don’t winterize the water system, so it’s not propylene glycol antifreeze. It’s not steering fluid, I use the Hynautic fluid that is...

      SeaDogAK replied to the thread Defever 53 POC.

      SeaDogAK reacted to Mambo42's post in the thread Defever 53 POC with Like Like.
