An interesting thing happened today while I was driving home. I spotted a truck hauling four new whalers somewhere. There was a OR 210, prerigged with engine, and three smaller Whalers, prerigged with engines and on trailers, covered with shrink wrap. At first I thought these were 23 sports since some had a bow rail and one only had a side rail and they all seemed to be side consoles.
Well when I pulled up to get a better look I noticed that besides the whaler logo on the shirk wrap written on the wrap was the manufacting date and the word "Nauset". I then compared the lengths to the 210 and they seemed bo be bigger than 13 more like 15 feet.
Is there a new 15? The Nauset 150?

should be "13 sports" instead of "23 sports"

When we got a load of Whalers in our dealership name was written on both sides of the boat on the shrink wrap. The model and serial number were written on the stern.

Little harsh don't you think Chap?

I apologize B Bear.
I am often criticized by my colleagues and wife for the brevity of my written responses. They are easily misunderstood, as pointed out by my Demon Deacon peer here on this site(I think I remember her alluding to this topic).
I was leaving the office and of course must check the site because it has also ruined my life. I knew the Nauset website from searching for boats and from having been there, so I just shot out a response, that I thought was neutral. Plus I don't know a great deal about what's going on at Whaler with regards to resurrected models, waiting on the return of the Ford Bronco myself. Nobody, including me, wants to put his foot in his mouth too often on this site. I try to provide simple info when I can or fun to read helpful stuff, while claiming no expertise regarding all things Whaler.

Wow, I just re-read my last post and that's even a little dry and condescending.
How about I just say sorry and I'll try to do a better job next time.

I saw absolutely nothing wrong with your reply. With any of them. Really.
I wonder why others did? Interesting.

Paranoia- Chronic psychosis marked by delusions of persecution or of grandeur, strenuously defended by the patient with apparent logic or reason.
A couple more posts like that Arch and I believe I have Classic Whaler Website induced paranoia. I need to go sit in my boat now.

Chap: Maybe, just maybe you should read what you are posting BEFORE hitting the Submit Reply button?
Now THAT was condescending! :-)
Seriously, I thought your first apology was fine.
Back on topic: I think it’d be great if BW brought back some of the old names. However, I think that if they do, they ought to use them for similar models. For example the Montauk should always be a center console in the 16-17 foot range. So how about a new 'Currituck' or 'Katama' side console built on the new 170 hull?

Your explination was fine, it makes sence that they would hand write the distination on the shrink wrap, even though it was not the case for the 210. I believe what started my curiousioty is that the name Nauset is also one that was used for an earlier whaler line.
Besides, I used to sail in the merchants and sailors are normally blunt and to the point using bad grammer and very base adjectives.
No f####ing problem.
Thanks for the reply.

Nice deduction, Chap.
But consider the possibility of a new Nauset... I still love LHG's idea... buy a 2002 Alert from CPD, have them gelcoat the outside white and the interior whaler blue. Then install a new mahogany console and seat. That would be awesome.
