Is there a resource to see what factory options were available for a particular model? I've seen some pictures of Revenges with storage boxes located behind the front seats, and I was curious if they were homemade or factory items. Other Revenges had cabinets down below, but the one I'm looking at does not. Any info would be appreciated.

On pre-1995 Whalers, the best source for Whaler option availability and pricing, are the little price handbooks they used to willingly offer to prospective customers.
There were also options shown in the main catalogs, and special options cataolgs.

People here who have these may be able to help you out.

I have one of the little books from 1975 if that will help. Let me know and I can tell you the options and prices, I think I have one from 1973 but will have to look.

I'm looking at an '89 Revenge 22, so if anyone has info on this model I'd much appreciate it.

Ready2Rip -

Price list from 1987 (effective Aug 1, 1987)

Super Pilot seat/workstations - BW offers 4 options, can be installed in pilot, compaion, or both (same price for both also). Aft of seats, covered with teak top.

Sink aft w/ 2 tackle drawers Pilot 15-1369-00 (companion 1-1370-00) $1,586

Livewell aft w/ 2 tackle drawers Pilot 15-1371-00 (companion 15-1372-00) $1,459.

Fishbox/storage Pilot 15-1373-00 (companion 15-1374-00) $1,153

Storage aft w/ 4 tackle drawers Pilot 15-1375-00 (companion 15-1376-00) $1,586

I ended up making my own out of 3/4" plywood. You can see them on Page 44 Alaskan Whalers. Not perfect, but functional. One is for storage, other has a 72 qt cooler in it. I continued the boxes under the pilot/companion seats also.

Add about 10% to those '87 prices for 1989.
