I am still new to this site, so it has taken me a while to thumb through all of this knowledge. But I just came upon the reference/13/models.html part of this site, and scrolled down to the GLS model to see....the boat I just bought Friday! Not sure how it got there, but there it is. Great looking boat.

If you guys can't tell, I'm still really excited. From the picture you can see a couple of the upgrades, which are numerous.

Proud to be a Whaler owner!

Welcome to the club! I don't think you could have bought a better brand boat regardless of price. Also you will find plenty of info on this site and what you don't see, just ask as someone here will know.

Welcome...

I took the picture of "Pound Salt" at the Sands restaurant side dock, on the ICW in Pompano Beach FL, sometime in early 2000. Did not know who the owner was. They were simply having lunch at the place. I was scouting out Whalers for pictures to send to Jimh for this site, and that struck me as a fairly rare model. Congratulations on your new boat. Never underestimate the wide reach of ContinuousWave's Classic Whaler!

Dunno if this is relevant to the story or how the original owner decided on the name "Pound Salt" but this was a common Bronx NY expression as a nice way of saying "up yours" or use your imagination for a more gutteral term.

Yes lhg, I bought the boat from a man who lives in Pompano. He lives right on a canal, and used the Whaler for weekend cruising (the 36' Phoenix is his fishing toy). You are right, it does seems to be a somewhat rare find--the previous owner babied it and put loads of options on the little 13'.

dgp, I had the same question. I got the same reply you did, but even the more "gutteral" term as you put it. I am contemplating changing the name in the near future.

If you want to keep the name but have some fun with it, rename the boat "lb NaCl".

I don't know about this name. Maybe it's not so inappropriate. If you'd listen to the new ads for the new 13 Sport, emphasizing their much smoother ride compared to the classic 13 hull, Pound Salt could be appropriate for a 13 foot Classic used in the ocean!

I have converted two classic 13's to stand-up center console configuration. This converts the hard riding sit-down position into a very nice riding (using knees as shock absorbers) rig. Handling is also superb as is the vision! The boat can be steered by simply shifting body weight (like steering a motorcycle by tilting one's head.. ahhh I remember those days!! Happy Whalin'...

Clark, when I was a kid I had an old wooden row boat with a Johnson (HP not remembered) that I could use body english to steer once on a plane. Unlike a motorcycle I couldn't countersteer to acheive the desired results.
