How good are you with fiberglass/painting algrip, do you have a place to work on it, do you have the tools and knowhow? What do you want the boat for, this model whaler has a round bottom and without the center board rolls very easy. Are you getting the mast, sail, and rudder. I think the boat dry weights around 125 lbs. weight the boat see how much water is in the hull. The price sounds very good, but not seeing the boat I do not know the condition. You do not want to spend more money and time on the boat than its worth unless this is something you really want. At 14 it would be a good learning process, However, I would try and save my money and find a 13 whaler that will give you more years of service as you grow older and fun...good luck to you

I have one in mint condition. It has all the rigging, keel and rudder. If these are not included it may cost over $300.00 to buy used.

Do you plan to sail this or use with an outboard? I am saving the boat for my young son.

Look for a 13' Whaler while you are at it. If you buy it I have a parts list and rigging instructions I can email you or drop in mail.

I bought a Squall last fall for $300 which included all the parts for the sail boat version of the boat. It also included an ugly, but usable trailer. My boat's hull needs sanding and paint to make it pretty again. The main value in a Squall comes with the rigging (rudder, center board, mast and sail. If the one that is listed has all that stuff with it I think it is certainly worth what they are asking.
