(Jan. 25, 2008 - Edgewater, FL) Boston Whaler®, the leading manufacturer of unsinkable family fishing boats, announced today that it will be featured in an upcoming episode of Some Assembly Required, a new television series on the Discovery Channel®. The episode featuring Boston Whaler will first air on Feb. 12 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, and then in later repeat episodes on Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. EST/PST and Feb. 17 at 12 a.m. EST/PST.

Some Assembly Required's premise is a complete, step-by-step explanation of unique or well-known products' manufacturing processes. The show's hosts, Brian Unger and Louis Bloomfield, work with the machinery or materials to show viewers how the featured items are built.

A highly specialized boat building process used in its Edgewater, Fla. facility, Boston Whaler's Unibond™ construction consists of inner decks and outer hulls made of fiberglass, gelcoat and resin with a unique chemical foam that is injected between them resulting in a solid, robust and unsinkable boat.

"When we were contacted by the production company, we were thrilled to be given the opportunity to showcase our unmatched production process for building boats," said Boston Whaler President John Ward. "Our employees and dealers are proud of the safety and reliability of our products. Being able to walk the Discovery Channel's Some Assembly Required viewer through how we deliver this is exciting."

Some Assembly Required airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST/PST on the Discovery Channel. For program information or your local listings, visit the dsc.discovery website.

Boston Whaler has been building boats known as The Unsinkable Legend™ with the same Unibond process since it first began building boats in 1958. For more information on Boston Whaler or to find your local dealer for a test ride, call 1-800-Whaler9.
