Here's a link to a 1978 Whaler with a similar year 55hp Suzuki, no trailer.
Price is $500
I just spoke to the owner, Gary. He's a dealer/marina guy. He said he bought the boat 2 years ago for $500. The previous owners beat on the boat. There are 3 "cracks" in the bottom of the hull. The boat was used like this in the water -- so you can figure out the rest. Supposedly the hull is dried out.
Gary says he just wants to make space in his boat yard. He was going to patch the boat and use it as a work boat, but his workers go out all year long and he was worried, with the low freeboard someone would fall out.
He says the engine ran 2 years ago, he did some carb work and changed the prop. He can lend the buyer a trailer if it's local.
South Shore Long Island boat purchases require extra care -- IMHO. -- and count your fingers before leaving!
Anyway, just thought I'd share this, because I know there are many people on this site with the skills to make this lemon a lime.

No, I'm just passing this on to someone with the time, skills, and interest. I'm not qualified!
