Author Topic:   what do I have?

I've been reading various posts to this site and I'm a little confused. We have a 91 30th ann. montauk. I believe it was built by brunswick and does not have stringers. Am I right or wrong? It has a plate identifying it as hull # 034, with the whaler logo and unfortunately engraved with the original owners name. Are replacement plates available? Any other info about our boat would be greatly appreciated. Funny side note, when we are out fishing, cruising etc. we often are mistaken for fish and game or law enforcement , we feel due to the teal stripes on the white hull. We get quite a kick watching people pull in their extra gear, hide the beer, or other contraband, all this while we're trolling or tossing plugs, some people!

I'm sure you don't have stringers, and if I have my history correct (Clark or Larry or Jim probably need to confirm), you are pre-Brunswick.

I have a '92 Outrage 22' which also has a silhoutte that a lot of people associate with law enforcement, and I had some laughs last summer before I had graphics added to the sides, cruising the Ohio River near Cincinnatti and seeing everyone snap to and behave as I passed. They obviously weren't close enough to see my Michigan tabs...

In 1991, the company was owned by Reebok. This was the first year of the re-introduction of white gelcoat on some of the new models. Brunswick did not purchase the Company until 1996.

SR: What will be REALLY interesting is to see if Whaler will be bringing out a 40TH anniversary version of the famous 16/17' hull, as they did with the 13. The 2001 boats are being introduced to Dealers in July, so we won't have to wait long to find out! Sure hope that they do! I'd even like to see one with the blue gelcoat interior, like they did with the 13.

Larry, a 40th Anniversery `16 Nauset/Eastport would be AWSOME! Let`s hope they do, naturally with the quality of the Rockland, Mass. hull. Regards-Jack Graner.

where do you suppose that reebok was making the hulls in 91? I know the factory ultimately relocated to florida, what year?
I too think that a retro model with the newer hull design would be a great idea. Bring back some wood (though I like the low maintenance offered by glass).

SR, I would prefer the pre-76` `16 hull for a Nauset/Eastport, considering that is original and I like the old hull design better(more stable). As for Reebok I am pretty sure Whalers were starting to be made in Florida in 89`. Although I do believe that that was for only certain models. I think full production started in 90`. If they make an anniversery Nauset/Eastport, for me to purchase one it would have to be almost totally like the old ones. The hull, mahoghany center console, white gelcoat, and either the old white rubrail(not glued on though, 2-3 part system, or the black rubrail used until 90 something). I don`t like the new rubrail used on Whalers at the present time. They seem cheap, and fat, and the ribbed look is kind of ugly. But then as most people know on this forum I don`t like very much about the new Whalers in general. Regards-JACK.

I've got a question about the hulls. A buddy has a 64 or so 17'. The hull is very similar to our 91. It seems that the major difference is the sponson(?) on our boat doubles back down (away) and wraps around the front. My friends is only a crease and does not wrap around the front. I'm told the newer design directs spray down and away. I can see where the earlier design may allow spray to come up over the bow. I'm confused how the old design would be a more stable platform. To me it seems that both waterlines would be about the same. I may have this all wrong, as his is now in his garage belly-up getting a new gel coat. I need to get him to check this site as he is soon looking to rig his boat with new console, new (old) motor and other appointments.
