ContinuousWave: Post-Classic Whalers

Hello all! Spent some time this weekend browsing the forums; my wife and I are thinking about a new boat this year, and are headed out to look at the 275 Conquest next weekend. We do not know a lot about Whalers; but we are impressed with the layout of the Conquest. I have owned boats all of my life (mostly fishing boats, like Mako's), and we currently own a Robalo 235 walk around.
We are looking for a boat that will get us out to the canyon's for day trips (weather permitting); we started tune fishing this year and we both had a blast.
We would be interested in any feedback/advice/thoughts you would have. We are looking to equip the boat with 225 four strokes. Thanks!

Go for it.
We upgraded from a 23 foot Conquest to a 305 Conquest for similar reasons--the desire to take longer trips in possibly rough water and are pleased with the decision.
We have YamaMerc 225 4-strokes and like this engine choice very much.
The only downside is $$.

I think the fundamental thing about any Boston Whaler is that notion of "unsinkable", and if you are planning on going a ways offshore in a relatively small boat, why not get one that won't sink?
I hope you aren't planning to trailer the 275, as it is a big load for the highway. But if you keep the boat in the water or rack-stored, you won't have to worry about the trailer problems.
