Does anyone know of a company that will refurbish the 13 Whaler hull back to original condition? Late 60's model. Lots of screw holes, and cracked gelcoat,etc.

Welcome to the Forum. Unfortunately I do not have a direct answer to your question other than do a search over the last two years in the forum. There may be someone listed close to you.

Also, the amount of work you described is do-able on your own. There are many, many threads about all of these types of repair. Do a little searching around the site and you will find everything you need to know.

Even if you hire someone, knowing how it is supposed to be done will help you determine the quality of work you are paying for. There is a new article showing Tom Clark repairing severely damaged fiberglas on a Whaler.

Enjoy your restoration.

Thanks for the vote of confidence....I just don't have the space and time. I have redone several boats in the past and enjoyed it very much. This one may turn out to be a long term project.
