Ok. Someone is out 'test driving' one of my 13's. Another guy is coming by in an hour or two to buy another of my 13's. Must be time to get another Whaler!!! I found a 22' Outrage. I'm not familiar with one this big. But, we need a 'family' size boat. Need something stable -and comfy- in rough seas and all that.

The one I am looking at I'm told is a 1980. The guy says it has been 'refoamed' (whatever this means) and reglassed. The hull looks new. The guy has removed the gas tank to replace with a larger one. What else should I look for in this boat? Do the 22's ride nice? I read the post about first ride in the 22- looked great!

Where do I get more info? I checked this site & I only saw smaller Whalers. Also- the guys has all of the poles, etc for the canopy, but no canopy. Where does a person get one or am I better to have one made?

If anyone has photos of one of these- please send 'em to me or post 'em here.

Thanks! Oh, B/T/W The boat would have no engine (which is fine) and has a brand new EZ Loader and the price is $5500. What do you guys think?

Refoamed, I don't like the sound of that. More info on the refoaming should be asked of the owner. It might not be a big deal..............but then again.

Look through the Cetacea section index - there are a number of photos of Louis Kokinis' 22' Guardian, and of my 22' Outrage, "Outre'".

I'm with the Ox. Whalers can't be refoamed as far as I can tell, unless it is by using the factory recommended technique of cutting out blocks of rigid foam, inserting these cut blocks and glassing over. Chances that it was done correctly are slim. My guess is the boat has suffered major structural damage.
I wouldn't touch it, regardless of the price. I'll bet it weighs a ton, and may not be structurally sound. The price is too cheap. Keep looking for a good boat instead. Life is too short!
