Re: Edgewater facility expansion plan

This makes me wonder. Could it be Boston Whaler may be thinking about offering Evinrude ETEC, Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and other outboards as an option? That would certainly cause a huge increase in boat sales, requiring more capacity.

Re: E-TEC v. Yamaha: Non-Evinrude Testing

That video is VERY interesting. Makes me wonder how some of the smaller E-TEC's would do. Like the 60 ETEC on a 150 Montauk. Or a 90 E-TEC on a 170 Montauk. We've owned a 150 Montauk with a 60 4-stroke and ridden in a 170 Montauk with the 90 4-stroke, both pretty sluggish with average load.

Re: 1988 Montauk 17 Re-power

The 90 HP 2-Stroke Yamaha is the perfect engine for a classic Montauk. Lightweight and great quality, power and speed. Try to find a good used one. There are lots out there - Yamaha made them from c.1980r through c.2008. My [second] choice would be a new F70 Yamaha.

Re: Anchors used for the Montauk 170

I agree with Hoosier about the Chene anchor. They are lightweight, simple to use and no chain required or recommended. Retrievable straight up and can be used with a lot less anchor line. 2:1 instead of 7:1. We use the Chene #25 (for boats 12' to 25') in our classic Montauk.

Heated RPS seat

Re-power if needed with a new F70 Yamaha or good used Yamaha 90 HP 2-stroke. Maximum power on a new Montauk 150 is 60 HP. (not enough fo...

If the original white rubrail is intact, scrub it with Bar Keepers Friend and Scotch Brite pad. Many times comes out looking like new. Bar Keepers Friend is also great for fiberglass rust stain removal and general fiberglass polishing.

Re: 1966 Whaler 16

Try to restore the original gelcoat inside and outside if possible. Try a test spot using #7 polishing compound and a machine buffer. You might be surprised with the results. Usually it is easier, quicker and cheaper than remove and replace. The original gelcoat is worth saving.

Yeti Coolers as Standard Equipment

Went to the first local boat show of 2017 last week and noticed a lot of new center console boats have Yeti coolers as standard equipment, especially in the high end boats but on many others as well--makes sense to have a high-quality accessory on a high quality boat. Will Boston Whaler follow suit?

I don't think they had HIN tags back then like they do now. The stenciled numbers were it for a while.
From your picture, it looks like the number is 19747, which is a 1966 model year (17501 thru 21200).
Number 10747 is a 1964 model year (10301 thru 14700).
