Craig,
Before getting into the oldness of the boat, where will you be doing most of your fishing? If it is anywhere but very protected waters, be advised that whalers pound like hell and are wet.

THey do make tough hulls though. We still ahve a 13' '76 Whaler. The real problem is the engine. Regardless of how many times it has been rebuilt, I think you are asking for trouble with an outboard that old. If you are really serious, you should get a survey done on the hull to see if it has any rot or cracking issues...

As far as value, try www.nadaguides.com or something similar.
I can already tell you the value of the engine is functionally $0.00.

Sorry, hate to be the voice of doom.
