Re: 150 Montauk v. 158 Edgewater v. 15 Key West

Thank you Dutchman. You make an excellent point about being able to walk around without having to step over a bench seat. You believe the whaler would be smoother riding because of the added weight? The dead rise in the BW is 16 degrees while Edgewater is 18, would a normal person even be able to se...

150 Montauk v. 158 Edgewater v. 15 Key West

I would like comments [about a comparison of a 150 MONTAUK, an Edgewater 158 boat, and a Key West 15 boat]. Please provide thoughts on best power configuration. Thank you. I am considering up-sizing from a 13-foot Boston Whaler boat. The new boat will be used primarily to fish on Long Island Sound. ...

Re: 1987 13-footer Bimini Top

Thank you for your posts. This will be the second Bimini I will have installed, the first was on a 11.5 whaler that was a breeze. After reading the Continuous Wave article I now realize what could go wrong and will be sure to measure twice and drill once. FYI, the back support braces were great on m...

1987 13-footer Bimini Top

I purchased a recently restored 1987 Boston Whaler 13-footer. I am looking for Bimini Top. Any lessons learned with respect to width would be appreciated. I am curious about the width: the beam from rub rail to rub rail is 64-inches; the distance from where Bimini Top mounting brackets 60-inches; a ...

Re: Repower of a late model 13 or older 15

I agree with your thinking. This will be my last boat (unless I win the lottery), but reality is, even if I win, I will be very comfortable in an easily-transported hull that I am confident will keep me and passengers safe. The 15 is very appealing even if I would not be able to lift the engine off ...

13-footer or 15-footer Re-power E-TEC 30

[I] would appreciate feedback on my idea to re-power a c.2000 13-foot Boston Whaler boat or a c.1990 15-foot Boston Whaler boat with an E-TEC 30. Both weigh hulls weigh about the same 580-lbs. My thought is the E-TEC at 160-lbs is about 90-lbs lighter than a 40-HP engine using four-stroke-cycle desi...
