You got to be kidding. I think the Boston Whaler could tow you TJ.

Yeah, swap out the prop, for a 3' constant velocity prop and tow the Jeep.

Wow! Having grown up with about 8 different Boston Whalers in the family for the past 25 years, I can say that is one SWEET BW!!!

What are the specs on it?

I intend to live forever. So far, so good.

Sure. Try it. You'll know if it worked or not if a 1/2 block down the road your "D44 thingie" is still there or not.

Good looking boat dude. !!

Wow, what a great rig!

I'm trying to think of all of the whalers we had in our family over the years:
13, Two 15's (still own one), 17 montauk, 18 outrage, 21 outrage. These were all mid-80's vintage boats except for the 13'. It was an early cable-steer model from the 60's.

Again, great boat!

I intend to live forever. So far, so good.

That is sweet! How about hooking up the TJ to the back of the boat?

yeah theres a ladder & tank brackets.
I lived in key largo and dove all of the artificial reefs but my job is here in CT.

The u853 is one of the finest wreck dives anywhere- and the reef system off NJ is great
dark
deep
cold
low viz
all go with New England diving.


Center console boats are not the best diving platforms but we deal with it
