Several years ago, Boston Whaler tooled its 320 outrage hull with a sleek, hydrodynamic profile, sharp entry and hard chines. It gave it a strong, deep deadrise too, and the resulting hull rode soft and true. With a proven bottom like that, when it came time to bring the boat up to date, all of Whaler’s engineers focused on getting more boat from the same footprint. The goal was to do that and retain the unsinkable solid feel for which Whalers are revered. In short, the new 320 outrage would have to be roomier, more comfortable, more fishable and easier to maintain than its predecessor. To prove it, I didn’t just sea-trial the 320; I also fished it with five other anglers in conditions so crummy that few other boaters ventured from Ponce Inlet, Florida, near the Whaler factory that day.
