Reply: More 'zip' for the little Whaler...

I happen to own 2 each - 13ft 1963 Boston Whalers that I purchased for $500.00 each within 1 week of each other. They are both original and have the original 35 hp twin cylinder Mercury's mounted on them. I have found that one out performs the other only because of a 2 blades bronze prop. I have to tell you that I did put a 4 bladed aluminum on the other but it still cannot keep up. A 35 is not too big a motor for the 13 footer but I would hesitate to go much larger. I did consult a dealer and he stated that the 35 was the max hp for the 13 ft whaler of that vintage. Good luck to you and I hope this helps. Keep on boating. jon
