Whalers and beach buggies. Who can ask for more.

Great picture! It looks like Race Point Beach, off of Provincetown, MA (Cape Cod). I used to run my buggy ('73 CJ-5) and my Whaler ('72 13) there to fish for stripers, but never at the same time. I did land the Whaler off the beach in Truro a few miles down the bay, but it wasn't planned. By the way, to launch the boats into the surf, most of the buggies have a "pusher" welded to the front bumper and padded with carpet. The boat is spun around to point the bow towards the water and pushed in right off the sand into the surf.

It must play heck with the bottom to push the boats accross the sand. Not with my Whaler, it gets enough scratches from the Barnegat Bay, without deliberately dragging it accoss the sand.

It just goes to show how durable Whalers really are. I'd love to be the Keel Guard sales rep up there!
