Sometimes you just can’t buy a new item and have to fix what you have.
This is a perfect example, my boat. Yes a larger boat would be nice but i live
on Mosquito Lagoon. I have a backwater boat but it is good for 2 people, so
Whaler outrage 18 was my day cruiser of choice. I like this hull design because it does great in the ocean also. Lots of history about the hull design and the designer and the fact that The Boston Whaler company relocated to Edgewater Florida was pretty cool.
This is how i developed my respect for the hull, you remember the picture of the hull cut in half and the boat still floating,
Great Marketing there, but the reality is it’s a safe hull.
Here is the repair, it starts with damage from normal use, the deep V getting abused every time I run aground.
Next step is to explore the inside.
