I have heard an unconfirmed rumor from somebody that Nantuckets for '04 are on backorder, and all orders for the '04 company quota have been filled.

It may well be that 2004 production is sold out to orders for dealer stock. Doesn't necessarily mean they're all sold to individual buyers.
If you find a dealer who has some on order for future production and delivery, he's probably able to change the options on it to accomodate a buyer prior to its start of production.

Just stopped by my dealer to say hello and they have a 190 in the lot with a 135 Opti, blue trim and leaning post, not sure what year..so there are still some out there...

I don't know about the Nantucket's but I was talking with my dealer and he said that his last M170 for the year went out the door last week.

It sounds like one simply has to shop around a bit, and maybe travel to find what you want. Some dealers may be out of stock and others not. I recently visited one Dealership who had a bunch of 170's and a couple of Nantuckets on his lot.

When I was shoping for a 2004 montauk in Nov. 2003, one dealer I spoke with only had 1 montauk allocated to him. I think some dealers are not allocated many boats - it's not that BW is backordered.

In the old days, one could go into any Dealership, and if they did not have the model/options you wanted they would special order it for you. Nobody let business walk out the door. All three of my last Whaler purchases were done this way, with about a 3 months delivery time.
