Re: Boston Whaler Squall ?

some features of the Squall not yet mentioned... not really a swing keel, since no ballast, more of a sealed centerboard... and yes, it was originally equipped with a kick-up rudder (all aluminum)
- the long (pronounced) skeg make her a straight-towing dinghy and at 7 knots it towed just fine on rise of the the 2nd following wake... while a Seagull outboard could drive it at hull speed, so could 2 oarsmen (yes, there is a 2nd rowing station forward) balanced well using forward station when only 2 or 3 occupants... but with outboard ferried 5-6 adults all the time...
- yes, 125 pounds, but as a kid my mom and i could lift it off the cabintop and over the lifelines
- having turtled under sail (and easily righted) in confused seas and having rowed in/out through 3-4 foot breakers i can recommend it as a hardy tender
- i liked the 6-foot oars... tried the longer ones once; i found them to be OK in protected waters (hull-speed attained, alone,) but too long when in open seas or heavy chop...

I know nothing about this Squall. When were they made, etc. I will probably try to sell it and purchase another dink. It is in great shape. How do I find out it's worth.
