Boston Whaler Tender
 
Ok guys tell me what you know about a 1978 9' Whaler. Is she to heavy for davits? How dose she sail, tow, roe, and carry a load?
Thanks

BWs generally are excellent boats, and they make great tenders. That said, it probably is too heavy for davits, particularly if you are hauling it with the motor attached. What size boat do you have and what kind of davits?

Way too heavy for most sailboats to carry on deck, in davits, or tow.
