I own a '89 Super Sport Limited and will send you a couple of pictures. These will be ones taken of the Whaler before I made modifications. I added some mahogany to the consoles and wider shelves to hold a fish finder and radio. I also added 1" tubing around both consoles to have something to hold on to. I thought the windshields were a little to exposed for my likes, now when I drive I can stand up and hold on. I have a small family and the boat is ideal for us and has plenty of room for walk-around fishing. A 100hp Evinrude powers it and I've had problems with this motor. If I repowered I think I'd step down to a 75hp. I really like this boat, and it is perfect for Boston Harbor and the lakes in New England

Jim, I own a mostly original 1989 17 SS Ltd. I don't have any photos to share, but I'd be glad to answer any questions you may have. For a picture, there's a 13 foot model in Cetacea, which looks just like a 15 & a 17 foot model, just scaled down. Someone (Whalerguy?) had one for sale recently, with photos, but one windshield and the back deck were missing. What do you intend to use the boat for? It's a great Whaler runabout. It weighs a little more than a Montauk, (950 lbs?). A dual console boat, it has two full width, upholstered bench seats. Lots of storage (for a 17). Mine has a 24 gal. Pate tank under the rear deck. Boat has a standard ski pylon. Several I've seen have cracked/missing windshields. Ask the seller about that, and verify that the rear deck is on the boat. Some of these have gone 'missing'. Also, ask what shape the upholstery is in, I had mine replaced (Dave's)
