I think I must be seeing conflicting info in various post. Is the 2002 different then the 2000? I thought the last change was in 1999? Can anyone detail the changes in the hull shape of the various 13' models over the past 12 years? I have been to the 13' reference page but would love to see some good photos of the various hulls. I am a first time boat owner and consider myself lucky to have started with my 2002 13' sport w\Merc 40 2 stroke. I was this close to buying a Logic too. :)

Just revisted the Model photos. Nice shot of the post 1994 GLS. But from that shot it looks much like my 2002.

The original 13' didn't change much in the last 12 years, other than rail and console configurations. The last of these was available in 2001 (I think) as the 13' GLS.

The current 13' Sport, which you and I own, has an entirely new hull and was introduced in 2000. It looks similar at first, but once you've been looking at Whalers for while, you can tell them apart a mile away.

I'm in the same boat as you, no pun intended. If I had to pony up for the GLS, I probably wouldn't own a Whaler today! Thank Brunswick for their one affordable Whaler model...

Good choiice over the logc. Nice boats but the Whaler will repay the difference come trade-in time.
