1998 Boston Whaler 20 Ventura Bowrider Featuring the same deep-V hull as the Outrage for a soft, dry ride, the dual console Boston Whaler 20 Ventura is a low-maintenance runabout combining fish-fighting amenities with family-friendly features. Up to nine people can sit comfortably in the cockpit. The spacious bow area provides seating and sunbathing space. Seating includes a standard pedestal mount helm seat and a back-to-back companion seat which folds flat for lounging. The 20 Ventura offers storage for plenty of fishing gear and water toys. There's in-deck ski and equipment storage, gunnel-mounted rod holders and under-gunnel rod racks, storage lockers under the bow seats, a bow anchor locker and aft quarter seat storage. BOSTON WHALER: The center console layout, a Boston Whaler innovation, raised eyebrows back in 1961. By moving the helm from the starboard side to the center of the craft, boaters got better steering control and an even keel. With more room to move around, they got better fish-fighting capabilities. Now, countless manufacturers use this layout for their fishing boats. For 1996, Boston Whaler introduced the Accutrack hull. This system combines the smooth ride of a deep-V design with the dry ride provided by strategically placed chines. A Boston Whaler has a distinct style. The distinctive Whaler 'smirk' - a reverse chine and forward spray rail - catches spray and redirects it beneath the hull. In a following sea, it pushes the bow up for better steerage and improved safety. Thoughtful layouts put amenities such as prep stations and controls within easy reach. Seats can handle hundreds of pounds in static loads. Coaming pads are scaled to catch people above the knees. Helms have unobstructed views. And fishing areas provide optimum freedom of movement. Boston Whaler's Unibond construction starts with steel-reinforced hull molds to ensure consistency. Gel coat is sprayed into the mold to create what will be the hull's exterior, a skin coat of fiberglass is applied, varying biaxial and biaxial fiberglass sheets are coated with resin and hand-rolled into place. The deck mold is lowered into the hull mold and the two are latched together to form a closed mold system. Liquid structural foam fills the cavity between the hull and deck. The access plate is secured, and the foam bonds permanently to the resin and fiberglass. No screws, rivets or adhesives are necessary since the hull and deck form a single unit. Boston Whaler offers a 10-year limited transferable hull warranty. Boston Whaler's lifting eyes extend completely through the Unibond hull, they are reinforced for maximum towing and lifting strength. On all Whalers, cleats are generously sized. Hinges are solid stainless steel, not stamped and rolled. Fittings are recessed wherever possible to spare toes and to promote long life. Boston Whaler uses noncorrosive, welded, 316 stainless steel for its bow rails, to prevent water penetration, bleeding, rusting and staining. Fasten
