    Ever wondered if there is a better way to redesign the classic whaler 11, 13 and 15 footers ?

    They are almost perfect boats. What defect do you want to correct?

    Just the way they ended up.
    I really don't like the new ss models.

    Classic tale of victims of their success, and the need to please the dealership.
    Customers? who cares

    Years ago I went on a rescue in bad water of the Straights of Juan DeFuca. (Sekiu)
    In was a Boston Whaler Outrage with a big outboard.
    That thing went fast. Over tall waves and maneuvered well in that stuff as we searched.
    I never felt like we'd capsize or get Poled.
    The only thing I noticed about a big boat like that was so little walking room.
    I wouldn't change a thing on that boat!

    Hmm if possible, it would be great even a dream of many that someone would buy those old molds and start producing them again.
