Well, for the first time since about 1982, I don't own a Whaler. I had sold my '72 13 Sport (whaler #7) on Ebay about two months ago, but the buyer never showed up, so I called the second high bidder and he came through and picked the boat up on Saturday. I purchased another boat back in November (my first non-whaler) but I am now having strong feelings about maybe a newer (2000) 13, a boat that I could actually use, and not work on constantly, and not have to worry about the 20 year old motor dying. I feel a little out of the loop without a Whaler.

Good luck with the new shore house and good luck with the Maritime Skiff too, Dan!

Hey North Beach, I resemble that remark!
(not the Bayliner.)

Dan- there is a fellow who just traded a late model 13 for a new 17 Montauk. He did it at Birbarie Marine in Branford, Ct. He is a whaler dealer. Call Skip there and I'm sure if he hasn't sold it you can make a good deal. He traded it because he need more space.

Bubba from north beach: you should refrain from speaking ill about Mercedes unless you know what you are talking about, which obviously you do not... Searay owns BW.g

Bigshot, you know what I mean, checkmate

No kidding, but those of us with secondary educations don't view a searay as a mercedes

Dan, I feel very bad for you. You'll have a Whaler as soon as you find the right one.
I agree with the new 13' Sport, my son has just about got me talked into one. What ever you do don't look at the new rail and comfort package,or you'll buy one on the spot.
Regards, Jay

I have seen one with a full bow rail, a big improvement over the basic side rails in my opinion. What is included in the comfort package?

Sorry, Dan, the kids are fighting me for the net tonight. The comfort package has very high quality seat cushions and a flip up back rest for the helm seat. I was quoted $9995 with boat, Merc 90 2 stroke, galv. trailer and rail with comfort package. I'm taking a hard look at it. Regards, Jay P.S call John at Portage Entry and He will email you pictures. Sorry I don't have their # at home, I'll post it when i get to work tomorrow. Regards, Jay
