This past weekend ... Sunday I happened to come upon a 17 foot Dauntless with a 90 HP Honda Four... I wanted to get it on so I passed at 5000 rpms in my 170 with 90 Merc four in a calm stretch of water. I imagine he was going 4500 rpms, but I could not ask him since he was so upset that I plowed by his right side. All he could do was holler and scream at me. I was a gentlemen and listened and apoligized for overtaking him so suddenly and with out notice. I really think he felt he had the better B.W. and did not like me taking the lead while he entered the Inlet. :-)

I don't think Boston Whaler ever made a 17 foot Dauntless.
15', 16', 18' and up but no 17'.

The did make a '17 and a '13. The '17 is a dual console that looks more like the current ventura line. The '17 was made in the mid 90's during the era of the 13, and 15, before they switch the dauntless to 14,16,18.

So that means the 170 is a faster B.W. over the 18 Foot Dauntless? Great I thought so! Carry on! The Holy Cow

Without looking at horsepower I would assume that the 170 would be faster because it has less deadrise.
