Author Topic:   18 foot reference section

I know I probably sound like a broken record, but a reference section on the 18s would be great. I know there is alot of work involved, and if I could I would help, I will. Not sure what I could do, but offer the hand anyway! Is anyone else interested in an 18 section? Of course, a great section on all of the classic sizes would be a real asset for the owners of smaller Whalers looking to move up. Maybe a way to knock off several birds at a time, would be to combine the hulls that are essentially the same as other hulls (i.e., 20ft. hulls). Just a thought! Jim, what could we do on our end to help facilitate this?

I would agree we could use a section on the Outrage since the deep V came about in '78 but first let's get one on the earlier slab sides --- both the Revenge and Outrage 21 and 19 --- then work on the more recent models --- just my thoughts in keeping things going in proper progression --- Tom

Hey, actually I have been working on the 18 Reference section. I started it several months ago, then took the summer off to go boating. I just got back on the case a few days ago.

It will be available soon, I promise,

Fantastic! Looking forward to another great section in the Classic Whaler Site. Like I said before, if we can help in any way, just ask. Thanks!

I agree with BIGZ. I would love to see a reference section for the 19' and 21' outrages(1971 - 1978).

Just my thought.

I think the Classic Outrage/Revenge hulls showed up as follows, in sequence:

21 Outrage, ribbed sides 1971
19 Outrage 1974
20 Outrage, shallow V 1978
22 Outrage 1979
25 Outrage 1981
18 Outrage 1983
20 Outrage, from 22 hull 1985
17 Outrage 1991

It seems to make some sense for Jim to do these in this order. But then again, the 18 seems to be the most popular from one of the polls taken, so that sequence could also be used. Jim, it's your call, and we'll be happy either way!
