Although I thought I never would, I am now offering my beloved 15 footer for sale. Actually, I am buying a bigger (but older) Whaler, so the proceeds from this will go toward that purchase.
The Boat is a 1992 15-foot GLS. We bought this about three years ago from a guy who kept it at his parent's summer house on the Edisto river near Charleston. This has the GLS fiberglass interior. This boat does not have the windscreen, but it looks as though it never did, as there are no screw holes where one would expect them to be. This is not a pristine boat because the previous owner used it for such things as crabbing and shrimping and even fishing. There is a spot on the inside of the bow where the gelcoat is worn through to the green fiberglass that I was going to fix one day, but haven't gotten around to. I included a picture of it so that you can see it. I rewired the boat when I first got it because the harness had a bunch of splices in it. I have put in a new depth finder and speedometer and last year I put in a brand new Teleflex NFB helm and cable. It has a Pate 12-gallon gas tank, and I have NEVER used any ethanol-laden gasoline. As you can see, it also has a Sunbrella bimini top, but it is not a Mills set. I does, however, provide great shade in the hot summer sun. There is also has a bow cushion and one seat cushion (the other seat cushion is somewhere along the road in Stuart, FL).
The Engine is a 1992 70-HP Yamaha with power trim and tilt. It also has the Yamaha tachometer / oil level / trim level gauge. When I first got the rig, I had the carburetors cleaned and a water-separating filter installed. It is slow to start the first time when it has not been used in a few weeks, but fires right up in the morning after the first start. It is a smooth-running engine and we have used it less than 50 hours per season for the last three years.
The Trailer is a WESCO, which was built in Columbia. I have been impressed with this trailer because it is a thicker-than-standard galvanized metal (at least it seems that way to me). When I first got the trailer, I replaced the springs, shackles, bearings and bunk boards. Last year I replaced the wiring and installed LED lights. I bought a spare tire for it, and it is ready to travel anywhere in the US.
Right now we have it with us in Destin, Florida, where we will be until the end of June. In July, we will be returning back to Charleston, SC. We have the titles with us, so I can sell it at either location. I am asking $6000. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions at either:
(Note that there is a "dash" for roadrunner and a "dot" for gmail)

I am happy to report that this boat has been sold. I now can take delivery of the 1972 Ribside Outrage that is being refurbished for me. I had to follow WhalerJoy's rule of no more than THREE Whalers in the yard at any one time.
And by the way, a super nice family from Dallas, TX bought the boat and came and got it this week. I had the trailer bearings repacked and tires checked so that they could have a worry-free trip back to Dallas.
Thank you, Jim Hebert for this forum. A listing fee will be soon winging its way to you!
