Purchased my 1968 Classic Nauset in 2007. Found her in a snowbank covered in ice with a pretty hefty crack in the deck. Was just so excited to have found a Whaler, I went for it. Came with a trailer and a 1988 70HP Yamaha – $3,700. It’s been a great 10 years. Have fished all along the Cape and South Shore. The Yammy has been bullet proof. Couple of carb rebuilds, small tune-up and basic repairs, but otherwise worth every penny and then some. Boat on the other hand has been telling me she’s tired for the last few years. Last couple she’s been sitting a bit lower and lower in the water. I’ve patched, sanded, painted… you name it. This past summer, starting getting water fill up in the bilge after an hour or so on the water. Made it through the season and had a hard decision to make.
