This is what happens to a whaler that behaves very badly in its first life....It is reincarnated as this floating debacle.
The name of this boat should be "Please Kill Me"

Man... I'm sorry I didn't take my seasick meds before I looked at that... it's enough to make you nauseous.
But, heck... it'll seel for cheap and an hour and a dumpster would get rid of the most noxious errors.

It looks like an easter egg!

I can't believe Richard Simmons is giving up his Whaler.

Richard Simmons, that's a good one. Best part about the boat is the trailer, and it's not even included in the auction.

Fairly Roccoco-esque in its combinig af styles. Shall we review?
The exterior of the hull is an understated classic theme with a realistic patina that suggests substance and permanence.
The azure carpeting adds a proletariat or everyman note as it brings to mind a boat of the bass or even pontoon pusuasion. What better way to retain the blood of the fishes? "Out, out, damn spot" as The Bard put it in MacBeth.
The luxurious seating accomodations suggest an 80s vintage cigarette boat rife with the attitude of a scofflaw smuggler replete with chest hair and golden pinky ring.
A mix of random, surface mount and obsolete guages stand out as a testament to found art that challenges your senses and provokes a strong reaction.
A wrap of pleather about the gunwales awaits the new master in a style that suggests the artist Christo's avant garde works of pink-girthed islands.
The skipper-to-be will be able to sit high above the unwashed hordes as if on a throne of royalty.
Everywhere, the discerning eye will fall upon postmodern deconstructivism and dada elements; disrepair, the fallen state, wet core and meaninglessness prevail.

Thats weird! How did this thread get bounced off the gam and into the marketplace? When it started the thread was called my "wife's whaler"

The 17 hull is pretty tough, and for the money, this one looks like a pretty good buy at the current bid, assuming it's not waterlogged. Cosmetics are not a biggie if you can do fiberglass and gelcoat work, althogh gelcoat supplies are pricey. The seats/upholstery and front/rear inside stuff looks like it could away easily. Again, you have to have some vision and look past the pretty....or in this case.....I wouldn't think twice in looking at it, and then bidding on it if it wasn't 900 miles away....Mav

Wow! Looks like they got two Whaler ad banners from a dealer showroom and slapped them on the sides. Just when you think you've seen it all...

Pity that poor Whaler. I think it's owner must have been smokin' crack.

It's the Easter Whaler!
I would have propped a real big stuffed rabbit behind the helm.

Happy Easter all.

Well I don't want it; the bottom was painted.

Ouch. I thought I'd seen rough looking Whalers before. That one has got to be near the top!

Can you give a boat an AID's test?

Unsinkable? I think Alfred Nobel saw a picture of this boat about 2 hours before he invented Dynamite.
