Just got back from extended vacation and happened to pick up a 2000 Montauk w 90HP Yamaha 2stroke and galv. trailer. The boat had no cover and sat in a garage its short life. I stopped by the Whaler dealer and asked about a cover. He asked if I wanted a snap. I was suprised to hear a Whaler dealer recommend a snap cover. Is this correct? He told me that the factory offered snap covers on all small models. I can't believe it because of the foam. Regards, Jay

Mine came with a Mills mooring cover. Its great. It has unusual plastic coated metal clips that snap around the gunwale. Maybe thats what the dealer meant.

You must carry alot of cash on vacation.

Good luck with a great boat.

Dave, thanks for the reply. Do the snaps screw to the hull or do they clip to the hull. By the way I wrote a check and am waiting for the title. Regards, Jay

Jay,
They simply clip to the hull. The cover goes under the bow rail and has slots to accomodate the vertical bow rail supports. There is also an elastic band in the hem that keeps it tight around the bow area. From midships back, the cover goes over the console and over the stern rails. There are also draw strings at the stern to help pull the cover tight. I tie them to the lifting eyes on the stern. There are also openings for the stern light. It's a great product.

My boat also came with a Mills console cover. That does use snaps. There are only six however.

Dave
