Re: Mercury 60 HP on 15’ Whaler

I have a 1980 15-footer. With a new Mercury 40-HP [FOURSTROKE] with standard aluminum three-bladed propeller the top boat speed is 30-MPH

Re: SUPER SPORT 15 with Yamaha F70: Pull Water Skier

I have a 1980 15-footer with Mercury 40-HP engine. That boat and engine can pull a skier with short skis without a problem. With a 70-HP engine [to pull a water skier] will be no problem.

Re: 15-footer: Rerouting Anchor Locker Drain

As the owner of a 1980 15’, I’ve often pondered this as well. Hopefully we’ve got some owners that have done this and can share how it worked out.

Re: Boston Whaler 80's "Sport Fisherman" - Please Help Identify

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. That is not a Boston Whaler.
