Re: 2016 130 Super Sport: Mounting Multi-function Display

Thank you jimh & charig for your suggestions. I think now that the Garmin 54cv mounted to the right of the console is the safest and simplest mounting option. It's also the cheapest since that model has been discontinued but is available for $260. Seeing the photo from charig was very helpful --...

2016 130 Super Sport: Mounting Multi-function Display

I recently purchased a 2016 130 Super Sport. I am adding a chart plotter and SONAR multi-function display. I may buy a Garmin GPSMap 44dv, Garmin 74dv, RayMarine Dragonfly 5, or Dragonfly 7. With this recent model of the Super Sport, I can't figure out a good location to mount the multi-function dis...

SOLD: 1998 13 GLS $5999 New Hampshire

For sale: a 1998 Boston Whaler 13 GLS in outstanding condition for age -- which is the primary reason I purchased it; previously it was a New-Hampshire-lakes-region boat. The GLS was the premium model for the 13-foot hull in 1998 with full railings and a seat back with storage. This boat has a remov...

Re: 1998 GLS 13: Relocating Battery

Thank you Butch and Jim. Great suggestions. Here's where I am as of today: - I have enough electrical cable (almost too much) to run it under the bench seat since the seat is only 18" further forward than the original battery location. - Creating a wood cleat/sub-plate under the battery is a go...

1998 GLS 13: Relocating Battery

I'm contemplating relocating the battery on a 1998 GLS 13 to under the bench seat from just in front of the outboard splash well. This would move the battery out of the way and free up the rear deck. I'd also like to move it further to port to offset the weight of the helmsman and be closer to the f...

Re: 1998 13 GLS missing parts

Thank you--all useful stuff; appreciated.

Is there any way a small swim ladder can be mounted to a GLS transom, particularly since it is inverted?

Or, do I need to find a fold up ladder?

1998 13 GLS missing parts

This week I just purchased my first Boston Whaler: a 1998 GLS 13 in mostly very good condition. I have wanted a Whaler all my life so here I am at last. There are just a few parts that are missing that I can't find by internet searching. I've managed to find cushions and hardware for classic whalers...
