Re: 1991 OUTRAGE Combined Sidelight Lamp replacement "light assembly"

I just replaced [some part of the combined sidelight lamp] on a [1992] Montauk, and it was probably the same [lightbulb base and wiring being sought in this discussion]. I bought a replacement lamp fixture from my local marine store just for the internal parts. I discarded the lenses in order to reu...

Re: Trailer: Repair or Buy New

I'm thinking about going with the Load Rite 5S-172450VT. 2450 lb capacity. The distance between fenders is 73" and overall width is 90". The Montauk 17 has a beam of 74" I believe, so that isn't going to work well.

Re: Trailer: Repair or Buy New

The Load Rite dealer sounds like a nice guys. I'm looking at model 5S-192450VT, 2450-lbs capacity, 78-inches [between] fenders--the [MONTAUK 17] will fit in there nicely--and a three-year-warranty. [Please do not use abbreviations for words such as "btw" for "between." This is a ...

Re: Trailer: Repair or Buy New

Jimh, thank you for you insight. Although at one point it seemed like you were hinting at rebuilding the existing trailer, I agree with your summary that a new trailer is in my best interest. My local dealer quoted me for a 2450 lb trailer. Q5: Do you think this is excessive and will make the traile...

Trailer: Repair or Buy New

I have a 1992 Montauk 17 with a 30-gallon aluminum fuel tank and a 2008 Yamaha 70. I have owned this boat since 2005 and have been through a lot with it. Now that I have the finances, I am looking to give her a little TLC before we start diving and fishing this season. I have never liked the way tha...
