This is like it came out of a time capsule--too cool. Though, having grown up with a more typical 17, I wonder what side to side roll feels like in that one. In rough seas, being that high up, I bet it's like being up a mast.

I know that boat from my Whaler club and it truly is in great condition. He has a bunch of coin in her as well. They are not THAT rare but in that condition they are. Problem is finding somebody to buy the ugly duckling. My 19' Revenge is not the prettiest in the world but.....69106

Been done many times. Use a 17' Smirked hull(late '76+) and make sure everything mounted well(console, etc). Knew a guy with a 200 Yamaha on one. Did about 60. If you want more fun, put a 115 on a 15 Whaler....mid 50's + and a scary ass ride at that. Guy has one with a 130 Yamaha and installed a keel pad. Thing is crazy.

been looking for Currituck's or Nauset's or Newport's, I don't want a fwd console stand up, but I do want the in-hull rigging channel, want a virgin no bottom paint hull, and that's REAL hard to find in the Whaler family, I think 80% had bottom paint.. I like that 22 that Ed Hinckley has for sale, if it was only 5k cheaper..

Sorry but you are mistaken....many/most have no bottom paint if not in the NE or CA. Personally I would NEVER shy away from paint, easy enough to remove.

PS...if anyone has any questions about Whalers, PLEASE let me know. You guys know Donzis, I know Whalers.

Bui...here is my Whaler club I started about 10 years ago. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Gulf-Coast-Boston-Whaler-Owners-Association-GCBWOA/345692405961?ref=ts&v=wall

Yes Continuouswave is the best place for info. on Whalers. My screen name there is Tohsgib.

There are tons of 16/17's without bottom paint, especially in FL.

How long did it take you to type this?

And how/why did you think his screen name was something other than what it appeared?

Sometimes you frighten me. :wink:

LOL, 6 seconds to decode. Maybe 45 to type the answer. (The typing was much harder. Had to choose full reversal vs word by word.)

How and why? Looked fishy. Too completely bizarre to be an abbreviation or acronym, but not randomly typed (like "flkhsfkdfsh").

Plus, it just felt backwards:
Eiggib
Retsam Robrah
Gohegdeh
Xet Remraf
Onrefni
Tohsgib


I don't know how to describe what a backward word looks like exactly, but just reading that list you can start to feel some sort of pattern.

And last, Biggie has that sort of bent. Lots of good movie quotes. Quirky and fun obscure references. (He named his dog "Ubu." (http://www.funtrivia.com/askft/Question44326.html)) Sets off the Spidey sense after a while.

But don't be afraid. Some use their powers for good. Some for evil. I seem to use mine for...hmmm...relatively little financial gain. ;)

Yes, that one might get under my radar.

Very good Ghost. I had that as a license plate on my Vette years back after seeing Caddy Shack 2. Jackie Mason had it on his Corniche Conv. It was not a good screen name as it would somehow provoke people who are "edgy" in nature. After a few years I retired it and went under something that had to do with my 2004 GTO. When I sold that I needed a new name and so far no problems.
