What was the year of the 28 Conquest? I heard the first couple of years there was problems with the hulls? WOuld that be 1998 and 1999 or is it the years of 1999 and 2000? Also, what was the problem that the 28 Conquest was having? Is there any other recalls for these boats? or other problems?

Thank you,

I was told that the bad hulls were the first half dozen or so 1999 models, all were redone. The delivery on my boat was about 3 months

Hit the wrong button. delayed because of the redo on other boats. had mine 3 years and love it. There was a recall on battery cables. No big deal.

You are a lucky man. My wife and I fell in love with the 295 Conquest. She really wants one. It is so nice to have a common interest with your best friend and partner.

Actually by the time we are ready to buy there might be something new from BW, but I do not see it happening.

It will be a few years before we get ours. We are getting ready to have our first child so we are taking care of retirement business and looking for property in Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, Tarpon Springs area. Hey we want to purchase a house and plan to rent it out weekly. Maybe we can get a following from this forum who we can rent to.

Back to your 295 Conquest. It must be a blast to pilot and you must get all kinds of questions and admirers.

Please email me with any of your maintenance so we know what we need to look at for or just keep an eye out for.

Thank you for your response,

Also be aware that many of the Forum members HATE any of the new Whalers and will go to any means to berate the newer boats and those that find them a nice choice. This is the nastiest forum about boats or fishing that I am a member of, tread cautiously.

dogface and other,

Is there any other Boston Whaler Forums?

Thank you,

Rbyrd: There’s a ton contributors to this forum who own “Post Classic” Whalers and love them. I have to admit that many of them have been put off, as I sense that you are, but don’t let that stop you from posting questions about newer Whalers. Just pose your questions to the “Post Classic” section because that is what it is designed for. I have learned a ton of stuff from the good people on this site about all Whalers. Even the biggest bashers of newer Whalers are really good guys, they are just fiercely opinionated, but that’s ok. You can choose to engage them or not. Personally, I like to engage them when I have time. (Louie Kokinis and JBCornwell are over due to get theirs)

The great thing about this site is that one can learn a lot by participating. I just wish that more “Post Classic” owners would share their knowledge and experiences on this site. For instance: I own a 2001 23’ Outrage and love it. I would also really like to hear what folks have to say about their 28 Conquests or other “Post Classic” Whalers. I would also like to hear from “Traffic Lawyer.” I was cruising on “TheHullTruth” web site and read that he just ordered a new 255 Conquest. I would like to know how his sea trial went etc. He should have told us here first but he may have been intimidated.

I think several post-classic owners have gone to THT.

Thank you for the reply. Know I am not offended. I can be pretty hard core about Jeeps as I have relayed before in previous posts.

I am here to learn and one thing I know is the fact if BW did not not act on new ideas there would not be a Conquest or Defiance for Whaler following. That would be a shame that people who wanted a boat for the deep water would not have the safety of a Boston Whaler.

Also, I am new to this type of boating so I am taking it in. Moreover, I do not know anyone on this forum and I do not want to start offending people. Nothing is worse than someone new coming on the Jeep forum I frequent and insulting a older forum member.

Thank you for your advice and I just like to find more than just this forum.

If you or anyone else feels that I’m out of line or ‘overdue’ something, I would suggest the appropriate response is to 'engage’ the topic with facts. I would also suggest you take your beef to the thread where I (or anyone else) has offended you.

Our opinions may differ but our passion for Whaler does not.

Louie: Nah, I'm not offended at all. When I wrote the previous post I had a smiley face on the end but when I cut and pasted it I lost it and didn't check. What I was referring to by "over due to getting theirs" was to challenge your guys' assertions on the other thread that's all. I still wanted to 'engage’ the topic with facts but I got busy. I got time now, so off to the other thread.
