1982 Boston Whaler Sport 15 w/ 50HP Johnson Outboard .
No, it is NOT for sale !
This boat has a 15" pitch, deeply cupped, 3 blade SS propeller to jump up on plane quickly in shallow water. That is very important to me as I operate mostly in very shallow bays and don't want to damage seagrass. It will plane in about one boat length, top speed is 32 mph, and will run all day on just 6 gallons of gas.
Boat with Bimini top deployed.

posts, and before detailing and re lettering hull.

Tall (60") guide posts on rear and shorter posts (about 24") on front. The
tall posts have 7 way tail lamps mounted high, and marker lights at top of post.
Makes for great visibility when towing, backing, and launching. Note: License plate is mounted vertically for clearance. I Have had no legal problems with that so far.
Removable downriggers deployed (L), and swiveled inward for
The downriggers clear the guide on posts when launching or retrieving for convenience.
(L) Ice chest in rear for storage of tools & equipment
(R) Note how front guide post clears trolling motor
(L) Forward ice chest is for tackle storage. Smaller chest in front of it is a live bait well with oxygen infusion system.
(R) Comfortable, fold down, swivel fishing chair on casting deck.
Rail clamp type downrigger mount has board that rests on gunnel for great support. Photo is with downrigger removed.
The entire mount is easily removable if desired.
