I just purchased a 13'3" whaler, I think. It's a old boat, but built like a brick house. The transom is semi rounded, it has a wall going from side to side, with t pins or metal posts?? Just in front of that little wall is a serial number on the floor of the boat. The number is 7001124. This is the only number on the boat. The floor has curves and up front it has a step with a pattern embedded in the fibreglass, no storage locker. I checked the reference section but the numbers dont seem right. Any Ideas??

Sounds like one. People do fill in the lockers on those. Is the inside blue? Same kinda t-pin(norman pin) in the front too?

The front locker area looks like factory fibreglass. The bow has a funny hook like cleat?

Yes it blue inside. It's a old tender. There arent any rubrails.

Hi Mike,

13 foot whalers had a bow locker and did not have the dropped down bow as shown in your pictures. As well the transom of a 13 foot whaler is not like that....Cehck out this page in the picture section of this site and see the difference.

Hope this helps.... I am not sure if it is a Dell Qauy Dory but it may be. It is not a whaler.
