It seams to me that people are talking and bringing things up about the Post-90-` Whalers alot in the Classic Areas. I feel that talk should be in the Post-Classic Forum area. It used to be that way, but now it is being abused. Jack.

Jack--you have posted your comments to the wrong forum. Comments about the forums belong in the Meta-Forum.

Sorry JimH, I apprecitate you pointing out my error, it is just that the General Area is for general talk about "Classic Boston Whalers" and there is all of a sudden talk about Newer Whalers, isn`t that why you have the "Post-Classic" Area?? Just an observation. Jack.

Jack- You are correct. David

Thank you David, it seams I have been villified lately, because of my comments on New Whalers, and alot of it has to stem from the fact that New Whalers have been showing up in the General Classic Forum section and I will make comments there and they get mad, well if you get mad, go to the correct section for you`re Non-Classics please. Jack.

"General" means just about anything is open for a topic. You have made your feelings are well known about the new whalers, and now you want to segragate those members. Performance, Repairs and Modifications, Marketplace, Meta, pertain to all of us, and to those who may own other makes or no boat at all. Please let me know when this becomes a private club.

I think this classic vs neo-classic is a bunch of BS.
Why shouldn't a "neo-classic" owner be allowed to post anywhere instead of just in the back of the buss?
Don't we all have the same dedication to Boston Whaler? If we own one I would assume so.
If you look at it objectively the neo-classic owner is far more dedicated due to the price he has had to pay for his new boat.
I think this forum is great but I don't agree with the anal attitude that older is better and newer is crap.
I thing this forum should welcome all Boston Whaler owners regardless of year on an equal basis. Who knows Boston Whaler could go t**s up tomorrow and all would be classics. In my observation there are only a few posters that realy get down on the newer boats, but they need to open up their minds and realize that a 1967 may not be better than a 2002.
My main concern is that some members on this forum are treating owners of the newer models like 3rd world country citizens. The owners of the newer models have a lot of good information to share. Make them welcome!
Have basicly said this same thing before, don't know why I waste my time again but had to vent.

Well....My 1999 Dauntless 14 was designed and build after 1990, so it is technically a "Post-Classic" Whaler.
But since it is no longer in production, maybe it should be considered a "Real-Classic" Whaler.
Sooooo...where should I post? Could we have a ruling here? As Dick said, am I restricted to the "back of the bus" or will you guys let me move up a couple of rows?
Whalers are Whalers. Whalernut is .....well a "nut"..when it comes to his feelings of the "Classic" and "Non-Classic" Whalers. (who luv's ya, Jack).
Getting the Dauntless ready for some Bass fishing. Anybody else Bass fish outta their Whaler?

Bass fishing is my main thing. There is nothing like a largemouth coming up and taking a top water plug. Smallmouth aren't to shabby either.
Best bass fishing I have ever had was a TDY at Bosier AFB in Louisiana when I was in the Air Force. Nice lake on the base with free aluminum jon boats and largemouth up to 10#s. No gators but had to watch out for the watter mocs.

Since you're a bass fisherman, and you mentioned that you might take your Whaler out to Sekiu for salmon fishing, you might want to try Lake Ozette while you're in the neighborhood. I've taken my Outrage there a couple of times. It's a big beautiful natural lake, and there are bass, as well as other kinds of fish. And it's not crowded.

Upon refexion, I think this topic should be in the Fishing Forum.

I really have to object to this entire thread, first on the basis that it is posted to the wrong topic area of the FORUM.
The organization of the forums clearly provides a separate section, the META-Forum, where discussions about the forums can be held.
Second, your posting is hilariously ironic, because it seeks to complain about the behavior of others who have ignored forum posting guidelines, while at the same time doing exactly that.
Third, you characterize the posting of off-topic material as "abuse". I hardly think it qualifies as abuse. It has not occurred often, repeatedly, intentionally, or provocatively.
On the other hand, your complaint about it has occured often, intentionally, and seems intended to be provocative.
Fourth, you characterize your own position as having been "vilified." I hardly think you have been vilified. If anything, your extreme positions have been tolerated with little criticism.
If anyone wishes to continue this topic, please bring it up in the META-Forum. This thread is being closed.
