I searched this site for "Whalerparts.com" and got 111 hits. Nothing new but I'm glad YOU found it.

I copy down the part number of the items from the parts list and surprise the heck out of the Boston Whaler parts dept. They love it!
Very handy reference.

I have been using these diagrams to assist with maintenance ever since I found the reference on this site years ago. That one tip alone earned five stars for continuous wave.
I respect BW for posting this info. Many manufacturers have this info in the proper format but don't post it for fear of alienating distributors. He who controls the information, controls the world.
I recently consulted the wood location drawing shipped with my 2000 16' Dauntless. I compared it with the online version to find notable differences.
* My paper drawing has the same drawing number and fundamentally the same info.
* My paper drawing includes a list of revisions with brief descriptive text. Ex: "Changed part of transom wood to phenolic." The online drawing states "See OBS directory for revision history."
* There is only one drawing online for the entire production run, despite the fact minor revisions were made, presumably applicable to specific hull runs. <-- This lowers the grade from A to B - which is more accurate? Was the drawing revision made to correct the drawing, or a result of a manufacturing change? For now I will assume the paper drawing shipped with my boat is accurate.
* My paper drawing is marked revision B but notes revisions through C.
* The drawings include numbered references for specific wood locations, through 59. My paper drawing describes each. The online drawing has exactly the same numbered references, but the list that describes them is truncated at 43. <-- What??? How did this drawing pass QA? Not acceptable.
