Hi, we just bought a used 9' Whaler that's in great condition. But we're unable to find out (1) how big an outboard we can use, (2) how much the boat weighs, (3) a source of tilt-down davits. Also, has anyone tried to install a small center counsel on a boat this size? In advance, thanks for your advice! Ken

While not specific to your boat, there is a small rigid inflatable boat used as a tender at to a larger boat at a local marina that has a center console. The boat couldn't be more than 10' long. Granted, its designed to sit down behind instead of stand up but it looks cool.

I assume this is the tender and not the squall. There is a guy here with a 9' with a small center console that runs a 25hp on it. The transom is tough as hell on that so many 9' I see are running 9.9's so they will plane. With a 5hp it is strictly a tender. With a 9.9 you can have some fun. I would not however suggest a standup center console on that unless you have really good balance and surf or skateboard. Leaning your weight will turn it so you would not even need a steering wheel.

I saw a 9' Tender on the lake last year, it looked from the way it sat in the water like it was a displacement hull rather than a pling hull. It looked like it was very low in the water. Anyone know anything about this?

I meant "planing," not pling.
