Scott at Whalertown is very helpful in discussing Whaler repairs and does not weem to be always trying to make a buck. If it's something you can do he will tell you.

I think i talked to him today. Parts guy???? Seems like a good dude. I was trying to price new bow rails (I'm trying to sell mine actually) and he told me to go direct to CMI and cut the middle man out(Whalertowne). I hope he is the boss or his boss doesn't visit here. Well I still wouldn't mind if a Whaler enthusiast would like to take a look.

My understanding is he is the BOSS. A cousin runs a shop in Fenwick Del. which is a good option for parts if you are in the O.C. area since Del. has no tax. I picked up some ittle stuff from them to finish up a rehab on a 65, 16.

I am in Linthicum MD. area. A friend of mine and I did a restoration on a 1970 Eastport hull only with bow rail. The hull sat for 12 years on a lot after being bought at an auction. Turns out the boat was used to clean up oil/fuel spills in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore. It was filled half way with mud and leaves as well as a few trees growing out of it. Had quite a lot of gelcoat and some hull damage as well. We learned alot from this site as well as trial and error. After alot of sanding, epoxy, rubbing compound, and TLC we installed custom center console, mounted a motor, and did some woodwork and shes back in the water.
Still have some more work this winter but after 9 months of work we couldnt wait to use her this season. She looks great! Anyway thats my story, if you need any advice or ideas Email me from my profile above my post.
