Re: New Verado Design

The new entries from Mercury Marine are confusing. From what I can tell, they are still making the 350 and 400 straight-six supercharged engines. They are the traditional prawn-shaped look that they have had for years. These are the last of the big VERADO engines. The new 200, 250, and 300 are new V...

Re: 16 SL—the Black Sheep

I had a 16SL years ago and I am sorry I sold it. The 16SL boat came out of Arizona, and I brought it up to Utah to use with our children when they were smaller. For a 16-foot boat, the in-deck storage was very nice, passenger console had deep storage, and seating was great for smaller children. I ch...

Re: Mercury Introduces a V6 FOURSTROKE in 175, 200, and 225-HP

Wow, sounds great, looks really ugly. The big Verado, "prawn" look had to grow on me over the years. Newer decals and trim pieces have made it better. The smaller 150 4 cylinder is great looking, great running and easy to maintain. Easy to like from day one. These, I will never warm up to-...

Re: Trailer set up for 1997 Outrage 20

Duane is correct in his statement on the bunk trailer recommended by Whaler Everything I have seen in recent years has been completely bunk supported and not keel supported. Rollers only for launching and retrieving. I have read accounts on the older classic Whalers recommending keel support and not...

Re: Trailer set up for 1997 Outrage 20

I have a 1999 Outrage 20 which I upgrade the trailer a year ago to a tandem axle galvanized trailer. Same boat as you have. We don't have a Boston Whaler dealer in the state which I live (Utah) so I bought one on the open market and had to do the adjustments on my own. Up front, I wound up taking it...
