The boat has served its previous owners in a recreational fashion on local reservoirs. The overall condition of the boat is good. It has not been abused or fished hard during its life.

Includes 2-year-old Anderson OEM style cushion package including the much-desired stern bench seat and bow cushion. If the buyer does not want the bench seat and bow cushion included, it can be removed with a discount of $1,000 from the purchase price.

An oversized custom Sunbrella canvas Bimini was designed and built (Paul’s Custom Canvas in Denver) to provide optimal sun protection while not overtaking or consuming the occupants' space.

The trailer is a dual axle unit 1990 Continental with galvanized construction and an added folding tongue. Everything on this trailer has been updated in the last two years (minus leaf springs which are solid). I would not hesitate hauling it from coast to coast at the present time and the redundancy of a second axle and trailer brakes was comforting for longer tows or trips to the mountains.

The motor is a 1987 Yamaha 150 HP outboard. Approximately 535 hours on the motor. It was checked by a reputable local mechanic in July and came through with a positive report card. Compression is 73,80,75,80,72,78 (cylinders 1-6 respectively). Prop is stainless 19-M.

The overall condition of the hull is good. It does have some minor crazing and small holes have been properly filled from prior hardware. This is not a “restored” boat and has dings and scratches typical of a well-cared for Whaler of its age.

The boat sits very well in the water and does not indicate any type of saturation or water intrusion affecting the foam. The transom is in good condition and shows no signs of damage or delamination. An older foam filled boat benefits from freshwater use and a dry air climate. No bottom paint.

I replaced two brass thru hulls and gaskets spring 2020 and no existing moisture was identified.
All brite work is currently protected and functional but could be refinished for aesthetic purposes.

An OEM replacement rub rail kit comes with the boat but has not been installed. The current one protects but shows its age.

Port and Starboard Kydex plastic side panels covering fuel filler hoses and navigation light wiring are absent and can be replaced with options of fiberglass or wood if desired. Accompanying small fiberglass floor panels with OEM decals come with the boat but are not pictured.

The fuel tank is original and operates without concern. I replaced the fuel gauge in the spring of 2020 with an OEM Rochester model.

Replacement fuel tank fill hoses (fill and vent) for the tank come with the boat but not installed.

The ideal to-do list for this boat includes installation of fuel tank filler hoses, a console seated temperature gauge replacement (comes with the boat), replacement of running light fixture bulbs, replacement of 360° Lens for All-Round Lights on console, fiberglass cut and polish work and the application of black hull length stripe decal OEM (comes with the boat).
