Interesting...Whaler did not make a 1960 17' hull. They came out with the 16' hull in 1961. The 17' hull was not until late 1976.

Funny, I had what I thought was a 1964 Whaler that measured 16.7?

From what I understand, the pre-smirk hulls were condidered 16, smirked hulls are 17. Nick, is that correct?

I did see some pictures of this Whaler. It's a Nauset. The serial number was in the 3800's. That would make it a 1962. It did need some work.

FYI: the distinction between the classic 16 foot Whaler models and the 17 foot Whalers does NOT neatly coincide with the change from the original hull design to the newer "smirked" hull design in 1976 (both hulls are exactly the same length and width,) but the nominal length was changed from 16 to 17 in 1975 with the introduction of the 15 foot Whaler hull so the range of models would sound more evenly spread out at 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 and 21 feet.
