In the early 90's Boston Whaler made a <23,25,27> Walkaround. I'm interested in learning anything I can about how people liked these models, how they ran, any problems... etc any information would be appreciated.

We almost bought a 27 walkaround offshore, I think it was a 93 model year. Spent a fair amount of time on it trying to decide. Ended up buying a 24 Outrage, but that 27 was a sweet boat. In fact, had we bought it I doubt we would have the 24 and 33 Chris Craft cruiser.

I have a 1991 23' WA. Went fishing yesterday with my 6yr old daughter. Seas were 8-10' swells, winds 20mph. We caught a 50# Ono. I think my boat handles great!

I have a 92 23' WA and have a friend on the site who is restoring and repowering the same boat they are the greatest Whalers ever. You can fish, shleep and goof around in them, they are big enouugh to go 70 miles out (180 gallons of fuel) but small enough to trailer to the lake. They were built during the Reebok era to compete with Grady White and they are way overbuilt which is a good thing. I run mine with a singe 225 and it goes 40 mph in almost any weather.

toni and fuelfish, thanks for the posts, thats exactly what I was looking for! I've seen them around but had no idea how they ran... until now.
Have you heard anything about the 25 and 27 run? Bart
