Re: Hull and Fuel Tank Defects in 15 to 20-year-old DAUNTLESS or VENTURA

I am the original owner of a 2003 160 Dauntless. She has a few tiny gelcoat nicks from a few unfortunate encounters and some very minor hairline cracks. She is otherwise basically like new after 18 years of use, and has required only a modest amount of maintenance to stay that way. If I were looking...

Re: 2019 170 Montauk Range

My 160 Dauntless with 115 FOURSTROKE engine comfortably gets 5-MPG at 22 to 25-MPH. A 170 Montauk hull and newer engine are both perhaps slightly more efficient, so I think you could use 5-MPG as a conservative estimate. Hold back one-third of your fuel if you're going offshore or one-quarter if you...
