Guys, I have found an old Boston Whaler that is being sold in my home town CHEAP. The engine runs great, but the boat looks rough. It is older (70-80's) and pretty big 20-22ft. When i went to look at the boat i didnt have a tape measure. I crawled under it and looked for cracks, bad spots, and patches. There were none. There are several patches on the boat above the water line where they took off a kicker motor and the brackets. I have been advised to get the transom checked and that is my next step for this boat. The questions i have for you guys are Does anyone on here have or been around these boats? Is there any draw backs to them? It looks like it would be great in the rougher waters, is that so? what kind of expense am i looking at to "smooth" out the exterior of this boat? anything else ya'll want to add is always welcome. This boat is cheap enuff for me to consider just for the motor, i do not know anything about fiberglass boats so help me out if you can. Thanks for your Input, it is always appreciated. PS I am still looking to get a new boat (sea ark) in the future. But this one might be a good one for personal use.
