After much research, searching and negotiating I bought a 1999 Conquest 21. Garaged, Great Lakes freshwater boat with only 140 hours on the OPTIMAX 200hp. Bennett trim tabs. Electronics: Garmin GPS and Humminbird sounder, VHF radio. Canvas: Bimini w/ front and side curtains (never used, Cockpit cover. Options: Porta potti w/ pumpout, fishing package, livewell, 20 gal freshwater shower, cockpit table, tow bar.
I looked at the current Easport/Conquest 205, but wife and I really liked the larger cabin with jump seats and the integrated swim platform transom on the Conquest 21. I like the Outrage 21 deep vee on this boat too. We thought there was really no comparison. I still don't understand why Whaler gave up this market segment to Grady for several years.
Hope to see Dauntless 18 or BSMostril at one of the upcoming rendevous...if hurricanes stay away, I may go to the Stuart, FL event this summer.

Who made your cockpit cover-I've been looking for one for my 21 Conquest.

Great Lakes Boat Top Co., Inc of Vonore, TN. I surmise this was one of Sea Ray's subs that Whaler first went to under Brunswick.
The cushions were made by PUI, Inc of Edgewater. They are no longer in business according to Anderson Mfg of Mims, FL. They told me that PUI went bankrupt and took the patterns with them :(
Conquest 21 OEM canvass and cushions are therefore very difficult to get. Fortunately, mine are in good shape. The side curtains to the bimini are still in there original packaging.
Your only recourse I am afraid is to give your old cushions to a local upholster and have custom made.
