Best boat to sit on the bottom everyday. Seriously.

Hey, I was just along for the ride...in his whaler.
Again with the Whalers!
I'll see what I can find. These are the tides we deal with here. Take today for example:


03/08/2008


05:02 AM Low -0.6

11:07 AM High 10

05:25 PM Low -0.8

11:28 PM High 10

No room for the dog, and it's too wet a ride every time for what I'm looking for. They are cool though. Have seen some at boat shows.

Is that the correct name? I remember, and this is as a teenager, flying into Porland and driving north about an hour. This brings back real memories for me. My dad actually passed away in their house while on a trip to visit them (the Koshlieks were best friends with my parents) many years later. Don't fret as that was in '82. I visited way before that.

you can'g go wrong with a whaler, a 13' with a 40, or the 15' with a 60. both will pull a tube, or a small kid on two skis

It is beautiful up there. The summer is too short for me though.

Go with a Whaler. They are bullet proof!

I will add I skied behind my buddy's 16 montauk on my way to competition skiing. GREAT boat for water sports!!
