Whoa, Tex.
Simmer down.
You sound like a big Whaler fan, which is fine. I don't have problem with Whalers, in fact we use 22' and 25' Outrages for survey work on a yearly basis. Years ago we did a lot of traveling, diving and fishing in the Sea of Cortez in both a 13-foot and a 17-Montauk. The conditions there pounded the snot out of the boats, and except for being a bit on the wet side, they were the platforms of choice for all our forays away from civilization

The event I mentioned was a one-of (well, actually a few more than one - but I'm only personally familiar with the replacement of one boat)event that took place long before Brunswick gobbled up the Boston Whaler name. I'm merely passing on my experience; an interesting anomoly, not attacking your choice in small water craft.

Take a deep breath and repeat:

"Calm blue ocean" ten times.

Stay wet
