Check out the all new 27 Outrage on BW site. It looks pretty nice!

Hello,
I think I see a little SeaCraft influence or SKA perhaps.

Thanks

I'm in shock! This boat really is furthest from Whaler's original design focus. It has No Identity. If I saw this boat passing I would think it is another "steaknife" boat. The more I see stuff like this model the more I want to look for another brand. LHG often wonders how the factory feels about this site. I would be surprised if they even know we exist. If they did you think they would listen as we are the best market research there is! I'm sure I am not speaking on my own when I say that we aren't buying new mostly because we are NOT satisfied with the new product design. I can tell you if I was with whaler I would use this highly educated (whaler wise) board of Hard Core whaler owners on this site to refine the classic designs not to ignore them as thay have.
Another interesting thing to look at is resale prices. I have noticed that there are some 22' outrages late 80' to early 90's that go for the high $20's. And have recently seen a newer 20' outrage for the same money. It seems that the older outrages are prefered by many. I sure hope that something changes soon!

I like the design. I think it will do well. It seems to have a true deep vee and of course the standard Whaler foam floatation. It's similiar to a Contender or SeaCraft. It looks good and I know construction will be good!

I didn't say it didn't look good just that it doesn't look like a whaler. I think the seacraft boats have one of the best lines ever. In fact it is interesting that seacraft has retained the look of thier ORIGINAL designs while whaler has NOT!

About 6 years ago, I saw a 23' Sea Craft totally sunk at it's mooring. Only the tip of the bow was above water where it was held up by the mooring float. They look nice, but they'll go down like a lead balloon.

I like the new 27, it has 22 degree dead rise. Seacraft...nice boats good layout very very hallow sound when running in chop. Like IHG said: sink like a lead balloon

Agreed. Whalers are floaters and old SeaCrafts are sinkers, especially if you don't maintain the rear splashwell hatch seals.
Did anybody see the line of articles beginning in Boating, Commandments. The first is Thou Shall Not Sink. Sounds like the guy owns a Whaler.
