I am guessing from her profile, Coco Beach Florida. Boat sounds like a gem. If you were closer, and would consider trading for an 110, I'd be game.

Hey, I don't want to buy your boat, but I also have an 87 13 footer. I was just curious, how you like the Yamaha 4 stroke engine? I'm thinking of getting one and woudl love some feedback.

Thanks!

Watch out for the weight of a four stroke on the old style 13 whalers. For that matter, the current ETECs aren't any better in this regard. The weight of the motor will bury the stern of the boat in the water, and you will ship water over the transom if you slow down suddenly. I installed a 40 Etec on a customer's 1985, and was not happy with the balance. The owners love it, but what do they know.
If I remember correctly, Whaler sent out a notice in the late 1990's recommending that people not install bigger four strokes, because the hull was not designed for that much weight. I know the Suzuki 40 and the Evinrude weigh about 240lbs, and unless the Yamaha is dramatically lighter, I suggest caution. I did hear from my sales rep that the 25 and 30 ETECs will available this fall, and they should be lighter, and be a better match for your hull. If you have your heart set on the four stroke, don't let me rain on your parade. If you are careful, and your hull is nice and dry (read buoyant), you can most likely make do. If you have a heavy hull already, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise.
Happy Boating!

Glad I am not your client.

i thought this was for selling and not for fixing or expanding on the defects in a boat

A 15hp Yamaha 4 stroke is a little slow, plaining too, but nice.
