1979 MONTAUK Replacement Windshield

Postby Mattwarner » Mon Dec 31, 2018 7:56 am

I have a classic [1979] Montauk. Here in the UK parts for Whalers don't come up much . I have found a new replacement screen for a classic OUTRAGE (but doesn't say which one). Will the dimensions work from an Outrage console to a Montauk console?

Specialty Marine list [their products] for the Montauk and Outrage as the same part, the windscreen, the consoles, and they also list the dimensions.

I tend to think the center console used on the MONTAUK was the same as used on the OUTRAGE boats, unless the OUTRAGE boat had the optional Super-Console, which was much wider and much different. There was some evolution of the standard center console, mostly related to where the flat pad for mounting engine remote controls would be located. I don't know if that would have affected the plexiglass windshield dimension.

That a vendor of replacement parts thinks his product can be used in both models is not particularly definitive that Boston Whaler did that, too, but, as I mention above, that is my impression.
