Last summer we picked up a very sweet 1970 Boston Whaler Sakonnet in Michigan. She is perfect, just needed a good buffing, and after a summer of cooling issues and not being able to find a Bearcat mechanic on the east coast. We have decided to replace the Bearcat with a new 4 cycle motor. As seen in the pic up top.
We have put 3 coats of varnish on all the wood, the cool part is that we were able to save the original finish. The gel coat buffed out perfectly, not one spider crack. Something these old whalers are famous for.
