Reading Edgewater's website and they say they do not use any wood in there boat construction. Not talking about cabin, but in the Hull. So is there wood in the hulls of BOston Whalers like the newer Conquest 295/28 or the larger Outrage's?

Thank you,

Marine grade plywood is still used to reinforce the transom for the outboard motor(s). Plywood is no longer used as backing material for the mounting of deck hardware and accessories. For that Whaler uses Whaleboard, a phenolic resin board manufactured by Rainier Richlite.

BW started using Whaleboard in production June 1996.

Tom hit the nail on the head. The phenolic resin board that Whaler uses now is stronger and will allow drill and tap. It is alot stronger and in resistance to water.
