I am thinking of buying a 78 Whaler. What do I need to be looking for to make sure it is OK. $2500 seems like a good price. It has a 1985 80 HP Evinrude that has not run for a year. I am more concerned about the hull and what to look for. I know nothing about Whalers other than they are great boats. Any tips would be much appreciated.

What size boat is it, sounds like a 17'. A 1985 engine is worth next to nothing but if it runs it is a plus.

If it is a 17' it is way overpriced. By the way, where is it? Do you have a phone #?

need more info. Evinrude never made a 80hp, unless in commercial trim but I doubt that too. It has to be an 85(pre 1980) or a 90hp.
