Guys, check these boats out. I was at the Pittsburgh,PA. Boat Show and saw these boats and almost lost it! The interiors need tweeking, but check out the hulls, front and rear, they are like a mix of the old Whaler shape and the Smirk shape. Picture the interior different and side rails, maybee some bow rails and Kazaam! An older Whaler. They even put an Eagle trailer under these boats as an option, these trailers are awsome, I am not sure of the overall quality of the boats yet, but will research further. They have a smaller rubrail than the new Whalers also, and they sell them like 20-30 miles away from my house! Check them out and tell me what you think, they said they would work with a prospective buyer during the manufacturing process! http://www.westpennboats.com Regards-Jack Graner!!!!!!

Jack, you really opened yourself up to some flaming with this one. I have 1969 and the hulls on these boats are not very close at all to the hull on my boat. They don't even say "Boston Whaler" on the side. Your boat has been under cover way too long.

Like I said, I didn`t get the chance to look the quality over very long? And you`re right my Whaler has been under the snowy grave for way too long! Maybee the newer Trollers are better than the 69`s? I just thought it would be interesting to talk about the hull style if nothing else? Regards-Jack Graner.

Jack -

I've seen these boats unfortunately, having gone to Penn State for many years. I admit that being from Philadelphia I have an inherent bias, which my devot love for Boston Whaler doesn't help either. Troller boats are typical of anything else out of western PA. Read into that what you may.

As far as comparing the hull forms of the boats, I suppose you could do that. But there really are so many and such drastic differences in every aspect of Troller boats and Whalers that any comparison is inherently flawed.
