I have been the owner of three classic Boston Whaler skiffs since the mid-80s. In 2021, I completed restoring my present classic Boston Whaler skiff, an '88 Boston Whaler Super Sport 15. There are some third party forums (continuouswave.com, whalercentral.com (not currently accessible), etc.) from which much (but certainly not a complete set) documentation, brochures, and marketing literature from the period before the Brunswick acquisition of Boston Whaler may be acquired. I am requesting that Boston Whaler locate and add these items to its current document library within this owners group. Thanks in advance for considering this request.
Hello Sir, I would recommend sticking with a 70. you're a little heavy on your weight.
I have always been a MercuryMan!! But Yamaha makes a great motor.
I installed a Yamaha F70LA. Unlike most of the other 4-stroke outboards of this power rating, the Yamaha F70LA was the same weight as the '87 Johnson 70 HP 2-stroke outboard which I replaced. Most of the other outboards of this power rating are close to 100 lbs. heavier. Weight, quality, and a very positive experience with a Yamaha outboard which I had previously owned were major reasons for selecting a Yamaha outboard for the repower.
thanks capt. I look fwd to getting mine done. I am going to have either a tilt helm, or a wedge offset
