Re: 1975 BW newport

The 16' and 17' hulls both had the same exact same 16'7" centerline length, so one was not smaller than the other. Whaler called the 16'7" Hulls 16's up through the 1975 model year. These were known as non smirked hulls. In 1976 Whaler released the updated 16'7" hull and it had the bo...

Since the ice broke, my son has been on me to go for a boat ride. So we threw the project 15 (getting prepped for new gelcoat) in our lake and cruised.
