Here are a couple pictures. I'll post some more as I install the goodies.
It feels so good to have another Whaler.

Congrats on the boat, that is such a good looking Whaler. I just got my 190 outrage a couple of months ago, it's a great feeling.
Hope you enjoy it!

Dick, the new Whaler looks terrific. That is a really big looking 15 footer. I am sure you will enjoy her.

Nice boat. I have a classic 15. After looking at your 15 montauk and several others, I think it may be my future boat ("near " futre if I keep looking at your new boats)I really need to stop looking at your boats, I'm getting signs of "purchase fever". Maybe I should show the wife, and hope she catches it first. Congratulations!
*I still love my classic 15 though

It is a big 15 footer. At 15.5' it is a bit shorter than my classic Montauk but has 4" more beam and no motor well so the interior space is awsome.
The 170 console and RPS are appreciated, they could have put in a scaled down version.
The finish is typical Whaler, perfect.
The Karavan trailer is great so far but I haven't launched from a ramp yet.
I hope to get the electronics installed this weekend and then will take it for a real test.

Looks great Dick - I just got mine home and love it. I've had her out six or seven times now and have enjoyed every minute.
The Karavan trailer has worked out great - it's a snug fit. And the break-a-way tongue is terrific.
I'm still getting use to her having come from a 10' pram with a 4 1/2 hp motor - now I feel invincible. I pulled up on shore to visit with a friend the other day and he thought it was an 18' boat when he saw me coming in. I agree she's a big 15 footer.
Have fun with the boat,

The observation of the 150MT looking much larger than a 15' boat is intersting. I get that comment regularly when launching my 150 sport from fellow whaler owners and those who are not blessed with whaler ownership.

Great looking boat. That picture of the console looks a lot like the console on the Dauntless 15 I used to have.

Fine, very fine looking boat Dick. I'm sure you will be pleased with her. Good luck!

It really is a fine looking boat. I'm looking forward to seeing one, and comparing it in size to both the 170 and my 160 Dauntless.
To my eye, the console appears identical to that on my 160 Dauntless (which we've already established is the same as on the 170 Montauk, see http://continuouswave.com/ubb/Forum8/HTML/001926.html ). Again, the layout of the ignition and kill switches is a little different, and the console rail is different from the 160, but the console itself seems to be the same.
Enjoy the boat!
