    Default "Boston Whaler Look a Like"

    Check out this ad, not sure which model he is referring to here.

    I can only guess he means something like an old school whaling boat? You know... Captain Ahab and all...

    Maybe there is a Boston Whaler like the one in the pic - none that I have ever seen though.

    It comes with "rows" and an "evenroot". It's a dory.

    It's probably so more people will open the post and also so it'll show up when people do a search for "Boston Whaler". Lot's of people looking for BWs, not so many looking for dorys...although it does look like a cool boat!

    Where does he claim it looks like a BW?? It does look a bit like a whaling dory out of Gloucester, New London or New Bedford.

    He doesn't say what HP the evenroot is.

    He changed the ad. Earlier today the title said "Boston Whaler look alike"

    Maybe he saw this thread!
