I saw a commercial for Ford trucks that looks like they're pulling a Whaler. Anyone else see it? Is it a Whaler, and which one is it?

My wife saw the same commercial by the time I got in the room I just caught the ending. It sure looks like a whaler to me also but I did not see enough to tell which model. Guess we'll just have to keep watching till we figure it out.

My wife also yelled "hey, is that a Whaler" from the living room and by the time I got there I just caught the ending. It would be interesting to see if the Boston Whaler logo is on the side, if in fact it is a Whaler.

I saw the whole commercial twice and I'm still not sure. They went to a lot of effort not to advertise the boat. The Whaler logo is not visible (if it is a Whaler) from any of the camera angles. The boat looks to be in the 20-25' range.

It lurks like a Whaler to me.
I told my son to try to record it for me so we could watch it in slow-mo.
He told me I am officially a Whaleraholic. Regards, Jay

I believe this is a Frontier, Take a look at p 32 of Cetacea, tell me if you agree. I have only seen the bite once.

I saw it and it really cought my eye. You can't see the full side view but you can tell from the hull it's a BW. Rex

I think I saw a Whaler ... 'new style' Outrage 18 ... in a Honda Pilot commercial. The boat was sitting on a driveway, with no tow vehicle, while the owner was waiting for the new Honda Pilot to come along. This new SUV is supposed to be announced this month and they are apparently featuring its towing ability.

My son (7yrs old) was watching some kids show this weekend. Some girls from a cheerleading camp came over to see some boys on a dock via boat. They were on a Whaler, I think it was a Dauntless. It was just some silly kids show. The boat probably cost more than the actors were making.

Whalerdan: I saw that show last night. It was "Malcolm in the Middle" on Fox. Didn't catch the model but it was definately a Whaler.

I'm pretty sure it was a Dauntless. At least I'd bet a $1 it was.

Hoop, Arch
The boat in the Honda commercial is a Dauntless 18. I saw it being prepped by the dealer before they delivered it last month. Surprised to see it so soon on the air.

Whalerdan and Whaler Proud,
That was a Dauntless 15 on Malcolm in the Middle. My son works on the show as an assistant to the writers.

Just one more note. That boat on Malcom had a Honda engine.

Too bad they don't sell em with Hondas or Yamahas these days. I have never been a fan of Mercury.

I saw the Honda commercial, that new Dauntless 18 also had a Honda on her.

Caught a portion of another commercial the other nite. A guy is standing in his drive waiting to connect his boat which I beleive is a BW to his new SUV which is made by Honda. Have any of you seen this commercial?

Saw the Ford commercial tonight while watching the WINGS win the Cup (big cheer for Detroit and Scotty B who announced his retirement!) Anyhow, the boat in question is without question a classic outrage - I think a 22 with T top but need to see it again to be certain. CONGRATULATIONS WINGS!!!!!!!!!
