This one’s heading to St Mary’s Georgia, just north of the Florida line.

Kevin bought her from our project list.

That’s the Pathfinder’s Express team loading her on the YCM tilt bed!

You may have heard of Kevin, he’s the guy that made the ICW run from mile marker 0 in Norfolk, VA to Edgewater Fla (where the Whaler plant is) some 1,050 miles in a Boston Whaler 17 Alert (essentially a 17 Sport) back in the late 90s!

He’s a Whaler guy through and through and he’s had dozens over the years.

This one will be set up for Kevin and his wife to explore the St Marry’s River and the Intracoastal Waterway which intersect near their home. I’m sure he’ll occasionally poke out into the Atlantic on nice days as well!

She’s a project, and he wants her nice, so first stop is the fiberglass shop for a little restoration work, then to the Yamaha dealer where they’ll mate her up with a 70 hp four stroke - the perfect match!

The “GLS” stands for glass, as this model replaces the traditional mahogany bench seats and console with a low maintenance one piece molded fiberglass interior. Boston Whaler offered a GLS model for the classic 13,15 and 17’ hulls beginning in 1989.

Kevin also had us order a Wm. J Mills mooring cover to help keep her nice once the restoration is complete.

Mills was the sole OEM canvas supplier to Boston Whaler for the first 40 years, and they have templates for all the classic Whalers and some post classics as well.

We offer Mills bimini top and cover upgrades at our cost to clients purchasing a Whaler from YCM.

We also have an account with Great Lakes Boat Tops, the current OEM supplier of all things canvas to Boston Whaler.

Neither is inexpensive, but both offer top shelf quality and a custom fit.

So whether your trying to keep the UVs off your head or your boat, we’ve got you covered.

Kevin’s been a pleasure to work with, he’s got lots of good stories and has done some pretty cool stuff, no doubt we’ll stay in touch.

He’s excited about this GLS, and I’m sure he’ll send us pics to post along the way.

If you’re interested in a Whaler project, keep an eye on the project section of our inventory, we’ve got quite a few and we need to thin the heard!

Steve from Pathfinder’s Express sent us this photo earlier today, just after dropping off Jennifer’s new to her 130 Sport in Burlington,  Connecticut.

Steve’s a better boat delivery guy than photographer, and he usually forgets to take pictures entirely despite my constant reminding and harassing.

This one though, this one is different, at least the subject matter is.

It occurred to me that this driveway subtly says “Americana” like none I’ve seen in quite a while.

From tomato plants to Tonka trucks, the little girls pink tricycle, a Jeep Wrangler, American flag pinwheels -and now a Boston Whaler.   I love it…

Steve took a pretty good picture, and it looks like Jennifer has a pretty good life!

  Another Whaler from the YCM Project List

     and 

         

   a brief  SCIENCE DISCUSSION   

               

     -and an even briefer discussion on preventative maintenance

1999 Boston Whaler 16 Ventura!

Built on the same hull as the Dauntless 16 Center Console, but with a more family friendly Dual Console interior.

We picked this one up about two years ago, in the thick of covid. She was a running boat at the time, albeit a bit rougher than described with lots of random gelcoat crazing, and a lower unit that had witnessed the fascinating effects of galvanic corrosion first hand.

She’s a great start for anyone looking for a quality Boston Whaler Dual Console and willing to take on a project.

10k buys her -boat, motor and trailer.

*What the heck is galvanic corrosion?

Well, it’s the accelerated corrosion or breakdown of a metal that occurs when two connected dissimilar or different metals are exposed to an electrolyte (such as saltwater).

Electrolytes are conductors of electricity, and when combined with dissimilar metals, a DC current is formed, like a battery.

The negative (pun intended) results are that one of the two metals corrodes at an accelerated pace -in this case our lower unit.

On the positive side (yep, another pun) the other metal is protected from corrosion beyond its normal stand-alone ability -most likely our stainless steel prop.

So, what should have been done? The sacrificial anodes should have been checked and replaced on a regular basis, and if you’re leaving your boat in the water -keep the darn motor trimmed up!

**Ok then, what’s a sacrificial anode?

It’s an additional third dissimilar metal added to the unintended electrical circuit -usually zinc, which is quicker to give-up it’s ions (there’s a chart for this stuff -and please keep in mind, about a hundred years ago I pursued a business degree, and not a science degree for good reason).

Anyway, had one been added/maintained our lower unit would have lost its role as the anode and would still be intact today.

Anyway, if you want the boat, give us a call!

Lot's of stuff going on these days @ YCM!  

This Dauntless 17 left a few days ago for White Stone, about an hour up the road in Virginia’s Norther Neck -and just on the other side of that bridge...

You may recall we discussed the White Stone Bridge in one of our boat delivery posts a while back -built 69 years ago, two miles long, two lanes arching 110 feet above the Rappahannock River, 45 MPH, plenty of big trucks, white knuckles, etc. Oh yeah, and it kind of shakes a bit too.  

Anyway, Brian and his family are super excited about their new Whaler, and we’re counting on some fun boating pics on the Rappahannock! 

If anyone else out there is looking for 17 Dauntless, we’ve got another one here waiting her turn in the service lane!

Pretty Cool Text from Brian two days later!

Bermuda Bound!

There’s our 160 Super Sport all wrapped up and ready for a new and exciting life!

Pathfinder’s Express dropped her off yesterday afternoon on the docks at Port Elizabeth, New Jersey.

On June 2nd she sets sail for Hamilton, Bermuda aboard the 390 foot MV Oleander.

If you’ve been following YCM over the past year or so you’ve watched us ship a few of our Boston Whalers to Bermuda, all of which have been aboard the Oleander.

We had fun last year discussing the ships tracking system (AIS), which is used internationally for tracking every ship and passenger vessel (300 gross tons+/ or 150+ passengers) currently underway or at anchor -and watching as our little Whaler safely crossed the Atlantic on marinetrafic.com.

You can find that post on February 15th, 2022.

The Oleander was custom built for Bermuda Container Lines in 2019, she’s a combination container and Ro/Ro (roll on roll off) ship capable of transporting 456 TEU as well as 113 cars (or boats) stored internally.

What’s a TEU? It stands for Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit. Nearly everything is shipped in standardized containers, most are 20’ or 40’. A ship or marine terminal’s TEU is the number of 20’ containers it is capable of handling at one time.

If you’re not familiar with containerized cargo, they’re the boxes you see on the ship in the background of our photo - in just a few words (something I’m not known for -note Sunday’s longwinded post about a found lifejacket…) these containers revolutionized the way nearly every consumable is shipped around the world - from ship to truck, to warehouse, store, etc.

Our Boston Whaler 160 Super Sport however will be boarded as RoRo, and moved or rolled around the ship on it’s own trailer.

The Oleander is loaded with cargo from around the world in New Jersey’s Port Elizabeth terminals, departing every Friday, and arriving in Bermuda on Sunday. She’s unloaded and turned back around, providing the fastest and most efficient shipping from the United States to the Island.

The international stuff is fun, but hectic! Thank you to everyone who helped make this one successful!

Check out this super cool classic Stearns red and black plaid life jacket!

We found it stowed in a boat the other day -and it’s in amazing, nearly new condition!

Not only is this stylish, it has a stainless steel clasp on the strap and an actual metal zipper. Someone picked this out in a sporting goods store a long time ago with the intention of being safe on the water, while still looking sharp - not always an easy mix!

We often talk about the stuff left behind in the boats we buy, sometimes really cool, but mostly trash - from rusty fish hooks, outdated flares, a lifetime supply of sunscreen, various forms of birth control, tools (some good, some rusty), quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies, articles of moldy clothing, lots of yesterday’s “as seen on tv” stuff, tons of life jackets, lots of flashlights, some water skis, paddles, tow ropes, the occasional CB radio, disposable rain ponchos, fish measuring devices, monofilament line, and keys to nothing - but this - this is a pretty sweet life jacket.

 

So, all personal flotation devices (PFDs) sold in the United States have a Coast Guard label with info about the type of PFD, size, weight limits, and amongst other things, a lot number. It’s there for quality control, so the Coast Guard can dial in any issues to the batch.

Based on the lot number we contacted Stearns, now owned by Coleman to request a manufacture date - turns out our vest was made in the 4th quarter of 1976 - so apparently about the time Ford was leaving and Carter was coming in, plaid was big amongst sportsman.

Come to think if it - literally, just now - my dad had a red plaid Coleman thermos that looked a lot like this vest. That thermos full of coffee along with Dad’s camera bag were standard equipment on the family Grady White back in the 70s and 80s.

Folks have been wearing flotation devices in one form or another for a long time, in-fact evidence suggests the first PFDs were actually inflated animal skins and bladders used over 3000 years ago to keep invading Assyrian armies laden down with heavy weaponry afloat as they traversed the moats of their enemies.

In the 1800s folks began experimenting with bulky designs, mostly made of cork or balsa wood filled canvas. These were stiff, uncomfortable, and not always a safe alternative.

It’s hard enough to get folks to wear the modern comfortable vests of today, imagine trying to get your passengers to don a bulky sack of cork, or worse a pig batter!

It wasn’t until the Motor Boat Act of 1910 that life preservers (along with lights, whistles, and fire-extinguishers) were mandated by the federal government.

This ushered in a new generation of more comfortable life preservers with buoyancy coming from a light, fluffy cotton-like tropical seed called Kapok.

These are the vests you’d see the men of WWII wearing on the decks of war ships and storming the beaches of Europe.

For most Americans, the first real exposure to life jackets came during World War II.

Generally the men on the decks of ships and landing on beaches wore these Kapok filled vests, while the aviators wore a new, more compact inflatable rubber coated vest affectionally referred to as the “Mae West.”

These would inflate with the pull of a string, which engaged two liquid carbon dioxide tanks, converting the contents to gas, much like today’s more modern CO2 powered inflatable vests.

Ms. West, by the way, was an ample bosomed film and Broadway star, comedian, playwright, sex symbol and activist whose work spanned 70 years and whose namesake life vests saved thousands of servicemen.

Kapok was phased out in the 1980s as it naturally loses buoyancy over time and can actually absorb water - so check your PFD stash and toss out the old stuff!

Most life jackets of today are made of multiple thin layers of foam sheets. It’s inexpensive to produce and can’t absorb water.

We buy a lot of boats, and most come with a few life jackets - literally hundreds of life jackets make their way through York County Marine every year.

Some are newer and usable. We’ll occasionally include them with boats, or donate them, but most are older, and like everything else stowed on a boat, a bit mildewy. We often cut them open and use the thin foam sheets for protective padding when shipping boats.

While these vests may get you past a Coast Guard inspection, I’d really prefer you pick out life vests that fit, are comfortable, and that your family will actually wear!

So, back to these newer inflatable vests of WWII, not only were they reliable, but they also kept the user in a face up position, which had been a real problem with earlier vests - some of which could rotate the user into an upside-down position, often with tragic consequences.

Life vest advocates, myself included, like to remind fellow boaters that when someone actually needs a life vest, they may be severely injured or unconscious and unable to maintain a face-up posture, much less put one on.

In my family we wore life jackets as kids, but once we hit a certain age, I guess early teens, we no longer had to, at least not when on the family boat - and why should we - we grew up with a neighborhood pool, we were all good swimmers!

- According to the National Safe Boating Council, 2/3 of all drowning victims were “good swimmers.”

We were expected to wear a life jacket when boating unsupervised, but at some point, it just became acceptable to simply have one PFD stowed onboard for every passenger, as per the law.

It wasn’t until much later in life that I decided to wear one whenever underway on a boat. There were a lot of factors that influenced that decision.

Family pressure was one, wanting to set a good example another.

Also realizing that all military, law enforcement, and maritime professionals wear them - I probably should too?

I remember doing sea trials with clients who declined our (at the time optional) life vest suggestion, some were older, some not so steady on their feet.

It was a real concern for me.

Eventually I changed the policy, and I encourage you to do the same -it’s your boat, you’re the captain, you make the rules.

If you’re on one of our boats, the vest is mandatory.

Also there was this night a few years ago when a couple of kids in their 20s drowned on the creek within eyesight of my dock. They were in a canoe, it was late and all presumptions were that they had been drinking.

The next day law enforcement boats from several jurisdictions were searching the waters, a Coast Guard helicopter was flying nonstop, even drones were searching the shore lines.

Waterfront property owners in the area were encouraged to walk their shorelines, and search parties were organized of all ages.

It took the authorities the entire day to find both bodies.

They brought in experts on currents, did some triangulations and figured out where to look, the state police divers pulled up the second body around 5:30 that evening.

While I was walking the shoreline, the brother of one of the two kids pulled up in a boat, he was doing the same. He seemed optimistic, this was just like his brother, and he’d show up later.

It was sad and tragic, and it was simple to me, if those kids had worn a life vest they would not have sunk, they would have floated.

They'd probably be here today, telling a different story about the night they learned a great lesson, maybe they’d have kids, and probably they’d make them wear life vests.

Similar scenarios play out every year on waterways across the country.

Rarely will you hear of a boating fatality in which the person was actually wearing a life vest - 83% of boat related drownings were not wearing a life vest - also a National Safe Boating Council stat.

Most popular excuses - too hot, uncomfortable, tan lines - but it often just gets down to not being the cool thing to do.

So, what’s the law say?

Federal Law requires that when a vessel is underway, children under 13 must where a lifejacket. The exception would be below deck or within an enclosed cabin.

State laws may differ and as I understand it, the federal law does not supersede the state law, but is used in states that do not have life jacket laws, as well as in federal waters.

Realizing this is already a bit long winded, here’s a bit more on life jackets…

There are 5 Classifications of types of PFDs

Type I - Offshore Life Jackets, designed to keep you face up, in rougher open waters where rescue times may be increased. These tend to be bulky and uncomfortable, they are mandatory on all commercial vessels.

They are always going to be orange, as orange strongly contrasts with blue and gray waters, making the wearer easier to locate. In the early 1900s they might have been white, blue or gray which unfortunately caused many victims to be lost at sea.

 

Type II - These are the bulky, generally orange or yellow life jackets that are found on nearly every boat -the ones that no one really likes to wear! They’re slightly more comfortable but less buoyant than a Type I, and designed for inshore or near shore use where rescue will hopefully not take too long, and may not turn an unconscious person face up.

Type III - These vests are recommended for protected, inland water near shore, where chances of immediate rescue are good.

They’re not suitable for extended survival in rough water, and not designed to turn unconscious people face up in water.

They tend to resemble an actual vest, and are more comfortable to wear than a Type I or a Type II, but also provide less floatation.

Type III vests are available in inflatable models that provide even more comfort and versatility than any other, making them more likely to be worn. We wear type III automatic inflatables whenever we’re underway.

Type IV - Throwable Devices - These are NOT to be worn, they are to toss to a person in a man overboard situation. They are also required to be easily accessible at all times on all boats.

Type V - Special Use PFDs are to be used only for their designed purpose (which is stated on the label) such as white water rafting, kayaking, wind surfing, etc. Type V vests must be worn (not stowed) to meet USCG requirements.

Back to that Stearns red plaid Vest, it’s a bit large, but if worn over a thick shirt, hoodie, or sweater , would look quite dapper. I may just wear it to dinner on chilly evenings.

Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend, remember what it’s all about, and also enjoy the rest of National Safe Boating Week!

Congress, by joint resolution approved June 4, 1958 (36 U.S.C. 131), as amended, has authorized and requested the President to proclaim annually the 7-day period prior to Memorial Day weekend as "National Safe Boating Week.”

Here’s another one off of the YCM Back Burner Project List!

She’s a 1975 Boston Whaler Newport non-running project!

 

We bought her down in Wilson, NC close to 3 years ago, and just don’t have the time in the foreseeable future to do her justice.

This is the 16’7 pre-smirk hull, and the second year of the Newport.

The Newport shared the same great hull as original Montauk, Nauset, Currituck, etc - just a matter of interior modifications.

The Newport had a wider, lower molded console extending from the starboard side with a low platform in front for seats.

Ours still has the spray shield on the bow rails - they don’t usually survive 48 years!

 

Also rare - surviving 48 years without being assaulted by a brush and a gallon of anti-fouling bottom paint, which is why we bought her to begin with!

There’s plenty of gelcoat crazing inside and out, bumps, bruises, and the motor is untested.

Our project boats are sold as they sit, are not sea trialed, started or checked over by a mechanic - and are best suited for folks looking for a project!

She’s $6500.

Please CALL between 10am and 7pm EST if interested in our Project Newport. 757-329-9979 Thanks!

With the last 3 Whalers to leave YCM (all in the past few days) heading to various places in New York, Pathfinders Express has been stacking miles on that Dodge truck!

 

A few days ago a 130 Super Sport was delivered to a really cool family owned camp ground on Lake George in the Adirondacks. 

 

Another 130 Super Sport went to Upstate New York (we’re already getting pics from her new and excited family!)

 

Earlier this morning a 160 Super Sport left for a marina in the tiny town of Mannsville, NY, just north of Syracuse, just south of Canada.  

The marina is on a naturally protected pond with an inlet feeding directly into Lake Ontario.

 

It’s always fun to see where they go, and to learn about new places, but it’s the follow up stories and pictures - the kids, the grandkids, the relationships and the great adventures - that’s the really cool and rewarding stuff.  

 

If you’re on the delivery list, hang in there, we’ll be there soon!

She was a real pleasure to work with!  

 

This is Colleen’s first Whaler, but since she flies commercial jets, I think she’ll handle the 40 hp Merc just fine.

 

As for that right tail light, I swear it was working when it left Virginia earlier this morning….

Our #1 most requested boat - by far!  Boston Whaler 170 Montauk!

 

This one owner boat belonged to an older gentleman who recently moved on to an assisted living community. We often get calls from people entering the next stages of life, or from their families. We have built a reputation of being fair and helpful, while keeping the entire buying process simple, safe and professional.

He bought her new in 2004, replacing the Boston Whaler he lost during the tidal surges of Hurricane Isabel in 2003 - if you weren’t here, that was the big one for most of us living in Coastal Virginia (and most of the Mid-Atlantic).

He re-powered her in 2019 with a brand new Four Stroke Tohatsu 90 hp motor.

If you’re not familiar with Tohatsu, they’ve been around for decades, they’re made in Japan and have a long standing relationships with both Honda and Mercury.

In fact, if you have a current model Mercury 30hp or below, it’s actually a Tohatsu.

This motor is actually a rebranded Honda, - yep, same exact motor, different decals, different paint - lift off that cowling and cylinder head says Honda.

We will have more info, better pics, and pricing when she arrives, but here are a few details…

Factory Bimini Top, Bow Rails, Side Rails, Swim Platform, Galvanized Trailer w/ Folding Tongue & No Bottom Paint!

This will sell very fast - So Please Call for details between 10am and 7pm EST.

Nope, we can’t get her to you before Memorial Day!!

2022 Boston Whaler 130 Super Sport!

 

She has 8 -as in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 TOTAL HOURS!

This gorgeous 130 was purchased new last year by a “retired” gentleman in Reedville, Va (that’s my new, gentler and kinder term for “older fella”) - anyway, he’s a great guy, and the boats perfect, it’s just time to downsize!

Factory Options are as follows -

-Mercury’s 40 hp Four Stroke - Super reliable, quiet, efficient and easy to start.

-Gloss White hull with Boston Whaler’s super cool Light Blue Rear Accent Package.

-Teak Package - Teak wood covers the integrated swim platforms, a cool throwback to Whaler’s Classic 13.

Bimini Top - Black with high quality stainless steel frame and matching boot.

Swim Ladder - Stainless steel telescopic.

Windshield - Keeps the chilly air and spray away!

Wraparound bow rail - Keeps the grandkids and puppies inside!

Cover - Custom fit.

Galvanized Trailer - She’ll be offered with or without.

The all new 130 hull was introduced in 2019 and it’s the best riding 13’ Whaler to date.

Each generation of Boston Whaler’s much loved 13 is more forgiving than the last!

This hull is the perfect mix -a fun, dry and comfortable compact package that’s easy to tow, easy to launch and squeezes nicely into just about any garage.

Some of the cool new features include dual integrated swim platforms - these are a game changer for those that like getting in and out of the water!

They’re also a favorite spot for sitting and dangling one’s feet in the water while beached or at anchor.

The integrated swim platform was carried through on the new 160 Super Sport as well, it’s a great design!

This is also the first 13’ Whaler to have built in, locking dry storage - the top of the console has a hinged opening similar to that of a jet ski.

The compartment is watertight and perfect for cell phones, purses, dry clothing, etc.

 

She weighs 695 lbs dry and floats in 9” of water.

Add about 200 lbs for the motor, another 200 for gas & gear, and around 400 for the trailer - you’ll have about a 1500 lb package.

She’s perfect - No Holes Drilled, No Dings, No Chips, No Scratches and No Bottom Paint! - And No Waiting!

We’ll have lots of pics coming -and we’ll have her priced as soon as possible too.

As with all of our incoming boats - Please Call with Questions.

Arriving this week - We’ve got another impossible to find Boston Whaler 160 Super Sport!  

 

Fair Warning - the last one sold on 1 day.  

 

We’re picking her up from a senior couple who bought her new, took great care of her, and put a total of 84 hours on the motor.

 

Here are a few details -

 

- 2019 160 Super Sport 

 

-Super reliable, efficient, and quiet Mercury 75 Horsepower Fuel Injected Four  Stroke

 

  • Beautiful glossy White Hull with Classic Desert Tan Rear Accent Package 

 

  • Factory Teak Package - Covers the swim platforms, sharp look that pays homage to the classic Super Sports of the past!

 

  • Factory Bimini Top with Black Canvas on Stainless Steel Frame 

 

  • Factory Dash Appliqué - Carbon Fiber look dash cover 

 

  • Factory Windshield - Great on chilly mornings! 

 

  • Factory Hinged High back Chairs - These very comfortable seats fold flat for easier access to the back of the boat.

 

  • Factory Split Front Bow Rail - Great feature!  All the safety of a bow rail, but open in the front, making everything easier - working the anchor, fishing, bow boarding or loading, hopping off at the beach, etc, etc..

 

  • Factory Telescopic Stainless Swim Ladder 

 

  • Boston Whaler Karavan Galvanized Trailer with Folding Tongue (space saver, helps to fit in garage)

 

  • Other 

 

  • Garmin Echo Map GPS / Fish Finder 

 

  • Full Cover 

 

The 160 Super Sport replaced both the 170 and the 150 Super Sports in 2019.  There are very few on the market, as very few boats were produced in to 2020 and 2021, so we really only have two full years of production to date, and most owners aren’t selling! 

 

The 160 has fantastic ride quality, is stable, fast, fun and predictable. 

The dual Integrated Swim Platforms on the transom with boarding ladder make getting in and out of the water easy! 

The deep, high sides with internal stainless hand rails offers a safer feel than most earlier model side consoles. 

 

The 160 is very versatile - great for skiing, tubing, inland fishing, or just a run to the sandbar or restaurant.  

 

She’s beautiful, and we’ll be bringing her up to Virginia very soon - from there, getting her in front of our mechanic and in the water for sea trials.

 

More photos, info and pricing to follow. 

 

This boat will sell very quick - possibly before she arrives - please CALL if you are interested.  

(757)329-9979 - Call between 10AM and 7PM EST

She's here and she's beautiful! 

            74 Total Hours on the Four Stroke Mercury! 

1988 Boston Whaler 15 Super Sport Limited! 

 

2018 Mercury 60 hp Fuel Injected Four Stroke with Command Thrust! 

- While we’re not certain of the hours, we’re certain they’re low - we’ll plug her in and read them upon arrival! 

 

The Super Sport Limited was produced from 1986 to 1989 on the same fantastically fun classic 15’ Whaler hull -but instead of the traditional wooded benches and console, an all new one piece molded fiberglass interior consisting of dual consoles and two bench seats with backrests were added.

 

Both consoles had windshields (though most were broken or lost along the way) and the benches had comfortable cushions with storage below and behind.  

 

Similar to a car’s trunk, there’s also a large removable fiberglass hinged lid covering the otherwise open space between the driver’s bench and motor, which makes for a clean look, while creating additional storage and concealing the fuel tank and battery.  

If you’re lucky enough to find a Super Sport LTD, like the windshields, the trunk lids were often broken or lost along the way as well.

 

Because LTD was designed for family water sports, there’s a removable stainless steel ski pylon too  - yep, also often missing!  - Ours has ALL the cool original stuff! 

 

During the same production period Boston Whaler also produced a 13 Super Sport Limited, and the interiors are actually interchangeable.  

 

Our 15 SS LTD is a freshwater boat from Minnesota, she’s never seen saltwater, is in exceptional condition, and we’re very excited about her arrival here in Virginia! 

 

With a dry weight starting under 600 lbs, a max horsepower rating of 70, a far better ride than it’s bone jarring 13 foot sibling - the Classic 15 hull is arguably the most fun Whaler ever built. 

 

We don’t have an arrival date just yet (a couple weeks out) and we don’t have a price yet either  - though I do know she’ll be pricey.  

 

More details to follow! 

 

Oh, yeah -  35 years & No Bottom Paint!

It's Tire Day @ YCM!

It’s Tire Day @ YCM!

Have you priced wheels and tires lately?

Trailer tires definitely aren’t the sexiest part of the boat package, and very few folks even ask us about tires - but they’re super important, and we tend to spend a lot of money and time on them!

While trailers in general are the least glamorous and least discussed part of the boat purchase, they’re often the biggest pain in the stern for us!

From dry and cracked tires, faulty lights and wiring, to bearing failures, rusty springs, axles and frames… If you’ve ever spent time on the side of the highway with a broken trailer, you understand!

And then there’s the titles…

Almost never is the amount of times a boat owner permanently loses their boat’s title, they all seem to understand the importance of a boat’s title - yet a high percentage seem to “lose” their trailer title - wouldn’t you think they’d keep the two together? It- happens -all -the -time…

Or, if they find the title, there’s someone else’s name on it…

Anyway, while trailers are often the bane of our existence, today we celebrate tire day, so take a good look at your trailer tires before towing - look for cracks on the sidewalls and inside the treads.

If they’re cracked, they’ll peel apart at highway speed.

Look for imperfections and uneven wear, and always keep your tires properly inflated!

Did you know that just like your favorite can of beer, all DOT approved tires sold in the United States also have a born on date?

Yep, it’s stamped right on the sidewall.

If they were made after 2000 it’s real easy to find - just look for “DOT” and follow clockwise until you see four digits in a circle- that’s the week and year of production.

There are lots of opinions as to how often you should replace your boat’s trailer tires, with many experts saying every 3-5 years -even if they look great!

 

Unlike the average car tire which tends to be replaced based on mileage and obvious wear, boat trailers tend to sit in one place for extended periods of time, and their tires, which are made of organic compounds simply deteriorate.

We don’t sell tires, but we buy a lot of tires!

Don’t be that guy on the side of the interstate, check before you tow! - and find that title too!

The 160 Super Sport replaced both the 170 and the 150 Super Sports in 2019. There are very few on the market, as very few boats were produced in to 2020 and 2021, so we really only have two full years of production to date, and most owners aren’t selling!

The 160 has fantastic ride quality, is stable, fast, fun and predictable.

The dual Integrated Swim Platforms on the transom with boarding ladder make getting in and out of the water easy!

The deep, high sides with internal stainless hand rails offers a safer feel than most earlier model side consoles.

The 160 is very versatile - great for skiing, tubing, inland fishing, or just a run to the sandbar or restaurant.

She’s beautiful, and we’ll be bringing her up to Virginia very soon - from there, getting her in front of our mechanic and in the water for sea trials.
