Hi all,
I'm new to boating and just have a few questions. I'm looking to buy a whaler, 70's, '80's era. I'm thinking 21 footer, would that be safe enough to run in harbors as well as inland lakes? any and all info would be greatley appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Dace

Welcome aboard. You'll get great advise and conversation here. For your specfic question you can try " THe Trading Dock". You can also go to www.continuouswave.com for info on Whalers.

Thanks dija, While purusing the board I noticed a lot of Grady White enthusiasts, my Father had one, 23' if I remember correctly. I was just a little kid then.

If you be talking the 70's it would be a 21'. Its a real classic (just ask me ) but not easy to find. The 80's 20's and 22's are great boats. I'd try and find one with old power and put what you want on it. John from CT has one listed on the trading dock. Its pricy for its age but its a mint boat and I am sure he will get very close to that price. Boattrader has several 20's and 22's.

If my memory serves me right, you may want to stick with a 1980 or newer. That's the year they went to close cell foam flotation.
