Hello Whaler Community. I recently picked up a 1979 SPORT 13 in need of new wood seats and console. I intend on restoring it with help from my 13-year-old son. In New Jersey kids under 16-years-old with a boating safety certificate can operate a boat over 12-feet in length with an engine under 10-HP...
