Re: Buying Prototype Boat From Boston Whaler

It would be cool to see some photos so we can see some of the new features of the latest style of Montauk. Sounds like a great boat and a pretty sweet deal for you.

Re: Trailers

Your second idea is a good one, often the trailer is worth more than the boat it is under. The problem is getting rid of a boat that is sitting on it. You may end up cutting it up and taking it to the dump, not an awful prospect but itchy and a fair amount of work. I think you would have some diffic...

Re: Request appraisal for 1969 Sakonnet

I just saw an ad for a similar vintage Nauset in excellent condition, recently restored wood, very clean hull, trailer etc. with a 70 hp 2-stroke that appeared to be in excellent condition. The asking price is $12k, in New England. That may be the higher end of the market, but your boat certainly so...

Re: Sump Pump Drains Battery

A cover is the best solution, but I don't understand why it is not self-bailing, save for the forward sump. My 1989 Outrage 22 cuddy has a pair of small sumps in the aft corners, each connected to the rigging tunnels. With the plugs out, these will self bail in all conditions, and water will never b...

Re: Montauk 210 Thoughts

All in, it reminds me more of a classic Outrage 22 than a Montauk, and I think it would be plenty seaworthy for th...

The powerheads on modern 4-stroke V6 outboards are huge compared to the 2-stroke motors these boats were built for.

Re: Need Estimate on Value of a Squall

With the complete kit, I'd say it's worth at least a few hundred dollars to the right buyer. So many of these have lost the important bits of hardware, and it's becoming a rare thing to find a complete unit.

A very easy and safe way to lift the outboard is using an automotive engine hoist rented from your local rental yard.

Re: Outboard Engine Leasing

In reality, auto leases tend to be nothing more than a very expensive way to finance a new car.

Re: "1-Foot-itis" Dauntless 15 v. Dauntless 16

I agree with all the other positive comments on the Dauntless 16. It is a much more substantial boat than the 15, and handles nasty chop as well as any boat that size. While I agree the boat would perform better with a 115 than a 90, the 90 hp Mercury 2-stroke moves it along just fine. We routinely ...

Re: Trailering with a manual transmission

I towed my Montauk with a Jeep Wrangler, and now tow my Dauntless 16 with the same rig. The chock on a rope is really great, and does the job of keeping the tow vehicle out of the water. In addition, I always engage 4WD on the ramp, which limits wheel spin and allows a fairly aggressive punch of the...
