Bill After reading on this blog, I think you and I are the only ones with modern whalers! These guys are very helpful and informative. It sounds like you love your whaler as much as I do. My family has had all types of whalers over the years and my love for the modern super sports runs deep. Please feel free to email me if you ever have a question and if your ok with it I'll ping you. I'll try to get some photos uploaded to my page as soon as I can. Joe

Joe: thanks for the comment! I first really fell in love with Whalers when I was in high school, early 1980s. Worked at a marina that was a dealer, and I was part of the prep for new boats (I was instructed to remove each screw, one at a time, and squirt silicone (or something?) in the hole, and re-screw!) So my dream Whalers, the boats we most often sold, were the 17 Montauk and the 18 Outrage. I think most of them had teak all over them still ... So when it was time for me, I looked at the 150 Montauk and a lot of used classic Whalers ... and for some reason, I like the new hull design. It seems that I shouldn't ... but I do. It's just pretty. And so far, it's been great on the water, but I haven't really been out in anything awful. The new design puts some structure between the bench seat and the water, and the front section is relatively tall for a small boat ... you can stand and feel like you're safe or something. At the back, its classic Whaler, inches from the water. And though it has that curve from stem to stern, the front does NOT point downward, asking for a wave to come over the bow. I love it ... and every time I pass by it in my garage or driveway I love it even more ... so it's a classic Whaler to me ...
