On this past Monday I pulled alongside a new Nantucket with 150 Merc piloted by a Whaler factory employee (I think since permanent hull numbers were not affixed). I'm impressed with the boat's classic looks and open layout (didn't like the leaning post configuration, but that's just me)... all in all a very impressive boat and bet they will have a hard time keeping up with orders!!!! Happy whalin.. clark.. Spruce Creek Navy

Was the 150 the Optimax? Was there any mention of how the boat performed with the other engines offered (i.e. 135 Optimax)?

James, I think it was a 150 carb. but was looking mainly at boat and only recall that it was a 150 Saltwater (blue graphics)... Encounter was too brief to discuss performance with operator. Clark
