Thought I'd offer CW'ers the first shot at the "Minitauk", before I turn her over to the folks who are rehabbing my Menemsha. She is powered with a 1987 70 Horsepower Johnson, a very reliable motor that will push her to 38 mph (GPS).

*Hull is very sound, a few minor dings, commensurate with age. No water intrusion or delamination.
*Rubrail and mahogany wood replaced in 05.
*15 gallon pate tank holds enough gas to run all day.
*Additional Mahogany thwart seat provided for seating in front of center console, slides in under side rails for easy removal.
*All original stainless wrap around railing for rear thwart seat, original stainless grabrail on console. No bow rail. All rails solid and clean.
*Trailer solid, new rims,tires, hubs, and bearing buddies last fall. Comes with side bunks and guide-ons, this boat is a dream to trailer and launch.
*1987 70 horsepower Johnson professionally maintained twice a year. Carbs and powerpack less than two years old.


I hate to part with her, because she's given me so many good times, and she catches fish! The 15 hull performs like a dream, a very dry little boat!
Asking $6000, electronics (depthfinder and radio) not included, all reasonable offers considered. Please email me if you are interested, would love for her to go to a CW'er!

Will update pics this weekend:

I had the EXACT same setup down to the bottom paint color but with bowrails. Mine was a 1983/1990 combo that ran 48+ on the gps....jackplate and some carb mods. Oh the memories!

Very nice looking and the center comsoles are hard to find. Good luck with your sale.

Very nice. They are a dry boat for sure. You can't find a drier 15 foot boat.

As do I! She went for a fair price, to someone who seems to appreciate Whalers! I have mixed emotions of course, whoever said that the two happiest days in a boat owners life are 1) the day he buys his boat, and 2) the day he sells his boat, never owned a Whaler!-k
