I purchased this hull a few years ago. Solid and dry. I have had a tarp on it for the time I have had it.

Needs some glass work- rear engine well had an inspection port put in to access bottom bolts. Drain tube needs replacing. Screw holes need filling interior of boat.

Aft side rails included. $900 or best offer

Engine available for this project also. 1986 Johnson 90 horsepower. Power trim, VRO. Controls, cables, tach, harness.

This engine was run on another 16 hull last season and the season prior. Always ran great. $750 or best offer.

Please email me at address in profile if interested.

Do you have a NJ title for the boat?

I do have an NJ title.

How is the Outrage treating you still? Will you be fishing in the fall?

Good luck with the sale Rich.

Thanks Sal- 21 Outrage is great. Didn't get much use this summer but had a great trolling trip this past Monday out at the Barnegat Ridge.

I planned on selling the 21 Outrage this year but could not bring myself to advertise it- I just love the boat. We'll see what happens.

I am looking forward to the fall run- had a great fall season last year through November. You'll have to join me sometime.

Hope all is well with you and the family!

All in favor of hijacking Rich's for sale thread into a Barnegat Fishing Hole Bar and Hangout say Aye. AYE!

Anyone who has the pleasure of dealing with Rich is lucky. You'll get a great deal, and the generosity of the man behind it to boot.

AYE- hijack away Sal! Your kind words are very much appreciated.

Why don't we make this boat an Ocean County/NJ Whaler Association(OCNJWA)winter restoration project (excuse to drink beer and work on stuff). I have a bunch of parts and the engine does run well.

Need a shed or garage- if I clean mine out it may fit. I'd be happy to host meetings here. We could tie in some fishing stuff and drink beer and grill stuff. Poker & cigars too.

Jim hope you and your family are all well and you are enjoying retirement. You been catchin lately?

Real good to hear from both you guys.

I wish some one would hurry up and buy this thing because I've been drooling over it since it was first listed. This would make the perfect work boat, duck boat, crab and clam harvester. This is a most economical way to get into the Whaler way of life that I've seen in some time.

Your right Jim. I do think this would be an easy/cheap way to get on the water. I purchased this a couple of years ago to patch up the screw holes and engine well and just clean her up. Flip it over, sand the bottom and seal it up with epoxy primer and paint.

Throw a couple of bench seats in her and she's good to go. I was going to do this for a girlfriend's kid to get him on the water.

If someone is interested in the whole package I also have a small fiberglass side console and a steering cable that would probably work. Also have battery boxes, an older wet cell battery that would probably work and two metal 6 gallon OMC fuel cans. I have some old Z legs too if you wanted to go the center console/rps route.

I am motivated so I will give someone a good deal on the package. It's time to get this out of my yard and garage!

This is killing me.... would someone buy this already before I do and my wife kills me. Im sure I could find someway to justify a 6th boat. Gotta start thinking. Maybe one for each day of the week?

Think you could put in a bench seat and run it with a tiller? How would it do with a Honda 50HP tiller at 212lbs?
themclos posted 08-18-2009 02:41 PM ET (US)     Profile for themclos  Send Email to themclos     
I think this hull would be perfect with a 50HP tiller motor. It would make a great lake/bay, no frills fishing boat.

I have a boat just like it with a teak swim platform converted to a rear bench seat. Mounted a 50hp Mercury four stroke tiller and she is a nice no frills pickup/crabbing rig. Versitile and cheap fun. Rich has a deal here somebody needs to jump on it.

Rich, if a prospective buyer needs a trailer to haul her home I have a bunk one for $400 and it even came from the garden state too.

Very interested in hull. sent you an email today. I live in Maine and would come down to grab it with my trailer.I rebuilt a sakonett awhile back but with the kids,dogs, coolers etc. It was to small and I had to sell it for a bigger boat. Now my boy has his own boat and daughter off to college. My wife and I are looking for a bare hull to do a complete restoration. this looks like it is perfect !
lets talk.
Thanks, John

Looking at the motor it appears there is a jack plate on there; any interest in selling that jack plate?

It Would go perfect with my 88 on the nauset.

The photo is of the engine when it was installed and used during 2007 & 2008 on a different boat. The jack plate is still on the other boat with a 115 Yamaha hanging on it so that jackplate is not for sale.

I do still have this one available though:

Have you thought of placing a local ad,or the boat trader?

The viewership would be much higher.

Boat is sold. Buyer picked it up today- thanks Tom- best of luck with her- I sure hope it meets you needs.

Thanks for all the interest- it was a pleasure dealing with all who inquired.

It was very interesting that the most serious potential buyers for this project hull were located a good distance from here- 1000 to 1400 miles. The gentleman who purchased the hull traveled 3.5 hours one way this morning to pick it up.

It's really great to see this kind of interest in this Boston Whaler classic. I am happy that this one will see the water once again- I just didn't have the time to devote to it.

I didn't offer it for sale in local publications because it has been a hassle in the past and pretty expensive. Local paper is insane with their classified rates. Plus I'd rather offer it to the participants here first- people who know and care about these boats. I have sold and purchased a few things through this site. I have never had a problem with any transaction originating from this site- everyone has been great to deal with.

I am very pleased with the response and information Rich provided me with. Now I have my winter project. I also have a 1965 Nauset I might be willing to part with. I am the second owner. ( I have the original bill of sale) That boat also came fron NJ. It is almost pristine. Any interest? Tom
rtk posted 09-01-2009 05:38 PM ET (US)     Profile for rtk  Send Email to rtk     
Tom, glad you are satisfied with the boat. I always worry about condition descriptions not matching expectations.

Sorry I wasn't around to meet you, but perhaps when I'm down at my parents in DE I could check out the finished product.

Thanks again for the expedited pick up,
