I have been shopping for a small whaler. I looked at a 13 today but it was too rough for what I wanted. I found an 11 that was really nice. But I can't find any info/specs on this
site. Anyone have any recommened sites for info on this boat? It is a supersport model with a 20 johnson. Both are 95 model year.

WantaWhale - Take a look at a brand new 13. Whaler has them priced at approximately $8,500. You can't beat that price.

Thanks for the info and replies. Yes I would consider a new 13ft one..but right now I can't afford it. This one was a tender and looks really really good. Anyway I just got off the phone with the seller and after talking with him I decided to take it off his hands tommorow afternoon. He is going to put it in the water for me to test out. Said
engine has about 50 hours on it. The only work needed will be to remove the boat name
off the side, put back on the whaler sticker and the front cabinet wood looked a bit faded. Anyway , I am excited now that I will
have a whaler, although a tiny one :)

Congrats - You are going to love that boat and enjoy fixing her up. A year from now you will be buying a bigger boat.
What does 'usouthal' mean? Is that University of Southern Alabama?

Thanks ...its been awhile since I have owned a boat. As far as a bigger boat goes, I doubt it unless there is a big difference between the 11 and 13. I had a 14' Mckee craft (like a whaler) and I was quite happy with it. Unlike most of my friends , I sort of prefer the smaller boats because they are
easier to deal with all around. And yes thats University of South Alabama...infact I am going to have to call in tommorow so I can go pick up the boat! Do you know this area? I plan to use it mostly in the river and Mobile bay. Maybe the gulf on a good calm day. Lots of great water for a small boat in my area.

I keep my boat at West Point Lake on the Georgia - Alabama border. No, I have never been to Mobile. I am from Boston and my wife is from Charleston, SC so we usually travel in those two directions.
I really need a better tow vehicle for my 17 Montauk, so good for you if you can stick with an 11 Footer.

If you are ever in this area , check out the bay and the gulf. Both 2 good areas to explore. 2 civil war forts, sunken civil war ships etc. Just watch the bay as it can get pretty rough at times even though they say its in "protected waters"
