Boat Reviews By Owners
1987 -- 16' 7" BOSTON WHALER
Cockpit: Small but holds lots of stuff and has 2 ventilated solid teak doors
Cabin: whats that?
Construction: Solid foam core with 4,300 lbs swamped capacity that is unmatched
It will take way more abuse than my spine!
Handling: Ok she pounds a bit but just slow down and with some throttle adjustment you will learn to surf. Bow almost impossible to bury with experience-20 yrs now in my second Montauk
In big following seas she is WONDERFULL and trolls great even with sideways seas
to about 5 ft
I always though Whalers were overrated till I bought mine
Engine Room: 90 HP Evinrude FICHT 2000 yr gets about 6-8 miles per gallon and top speed about 42 mph
General Comments: Going out the Golden Gate Bridge almost weekly for salmon off Marin Coast of Ca
yes the potatoe patch in a 17 footer can get pretty knarly but I feel safe 98% of time
