Hi folks here is one for the Whaler Guru's amongst us -----
On our 27 '87 cc cuddy is a leaning post installed which wasn't one of Whalers catalog post yet it must have been factory installed and it used the same upholstery! This is still a mystery even Chuck Bennett at Whaler can't explain since there were no indication of other screw holes, and it is the tufted brownish tan upholstery used by Whaler then, factory installed???? Their records show our boat shipping with a leaning post to a Mass dealer in late '86 --- the post has underseat storage box and the rocket launcher base is teak not plastic, it has a back rest insert (same upholstery) which uses the rocket launcher outside rod holders and a flip down fighting chair base attached to the rear, a flip down foot rest and the aft bar to hold a 94qt cooler under the seat --- Chuck said Whaler never had a post like that!!!

I think since it was a local dealer some kind of deal was cut because the customer wanted a specific style post and due to the location BW might have accommodated this request since their post were fabricated locally --- don't really have a clue just conjecture on my part ---

Maybe someone has other thoughts or could shed some light on this abnormally

Thanks,
Tom
