2017 Montauk Gel Coat Color

Postby bigwaves » Tue Jul 25, 2017 8:04 pm

Hi there--I am a long time Whaler owner. I now have a 2017 Montauk. This past weekend my son put a small scratch in the hull--of course it's on the new boat and not on one the two old ones. My local dealer said the 2017 gel coat color is Arctic white and the other dealer about 50 miles away said the color is Ash White. Where can I find what gel coat color is on the boat? Both dealers took my HID and came up with different answers.

Thanks in advance.

Let Chuck Bennett of Boston Whaler customer service make the final decision.

According to WHALER.COM and the "build your own MONTAUK" page, there are five hull gel coat colors available:

--white (standard)
--classic desert tan
--glacier green
--light blue
--light gray

Exactly what the "standard" white gel coat color is called on 2017-build models is best left to the factory to declare.

Thanks for the information. Looks like the dealers can't figure out which white is being used.

I had a similar self inflicted situation with my 2003 160 Dauntless. I ordered a paste repair kit from Spectrum specific for the year and color of the boat and followed the instructions carefully as well as viewed a few YouTube videos on such repairs. The color match nearly perfectly and unless you know exactly where the repair occurred it's very hard to detect. I find it by running my fingers over the area I repaired as it feels slightly different, not quite as smooth.

I called Whaler and the Gelcoat is the same as 2016. Spectrum #2229 ash white.
