I recall as a kid a buddy had, actually still has it near 20 years later, a 17 ft whaler, and claimed Boston Whaler had a 10,000 reward?, if you could flip one. Try as he might it never did go over. I doubt Whaler would offer money to try and injure yourself, but can they or has anyone ever flipped theresssss? Reason I ask is when i get the 13 out in the water, I am undecided as to wheter or not I should strap our 19month old son in or not. Of course he will have a life jacket on, but thats of no use upside under a boat! Thanks, hope I never find out the hard way, shawn

Yes And I know from first hand exp. When I was young and stupid growing up alot of my friends here in S. Florida had whalers I was in a 11' w/ a 35 I think it was 7th or 8th grade we were in the intercostal jumping a wave from a large cruser maybe 50 ft or so that was plowing along. That day will be burned in my memory forever.
