Yes, it is. I know someone with one of these with a 60 hp Mercury on the back. It is rather zippy! Care to comment Roger?

I used a 13 Dauntless as a dive boat for five years. Took it 15 miles offshore in the Great Lakes on many occations. Everyone would make fun of the boat, because it was too small, but I was absolutly amazed at the things it would do. It was a real boat that would take on real water.
The boat was pounded hard for five seasons, and nothing broke. I traded it in on a Montauk last summer and broke the bow rail loose in rough water in July. Love the Montauk anyway!

Glad to see another Laughing Gull Marina customer on the forum.
I had a Dauntless 13 as well, which I also bought from Rick.
when you posted over in the "Post Classic" area about the Impact I reponded that you should look for a Dauntless 15 or a Stiper, I then told you that there was a Dauntless 13 in the Marketplace section by Taylor (not his), a 15 dauntless for sale by huladick, and a 15 dauntless by Obanlad.
The dealer wants too much for the one that you found on Yachtworld. If you do want it offer them $7500. Also be prepared to take the gas tank out of it and put in a smaller one. It looks like an 18 gallon tank. If it is if and you fill it up you will probably suffer from porpoising problems. I would not put in a tank bigger than 12 gallons.

I just talked to Rick at Laughing Gull this week, I'm on the hunt for a Dauntless 16 with a fishing package, can't seem find one here in this area. I live in N. Indiana, Rick wants to add the trolling motor plug, front seat pedistal, etc to an existing 01 Dauntless he has in stock...not sure I want to do that. Does anyone know where I could look at a Dauntless with the fishing package or better yet find a used one??

As a side note, I bought my 1973 `16 Currituck Whaler from a guy on Gull Lake, nice area, but a very small lake. A lot of old Classic Whalers per square inch on that Lake, it was like I died amd went to heaven!! Jack.

Both of us can compare Gull Lake to one of the Great Lakes. This skews our perception of what constitutes a large lake. Gull Lake is over 4 miles long, a mile wide and 100 ft. deep, I would say that is fairly large when compared to most lakes. Yes, there many that are bigger, but Gull Lake isn't small. Were it not for the lack of hotel space Gull Lake would be a great spot for a group of us to get together.
