I did sell my boat. The 2000 Montauk is gone. It was too good of a deal to pass up. Jamie and I both agreed the boat was too nice for what we were using it for. We are now looking for a used Montauk that we don't have to be too carefull with. Last time out in Fla. we just missed an oyster bar by about a foot. Also, the next Montauk must have teak. Regards, Jay P.S. Nick what do you want for yours now?

Hi JaY, I may be selling my 1973 `16 Currituck in the Spring. It is the bench seat model of the Montauk with lots of Mahogany!! Would you be interested, as the boat is in Ohio on Lake Erie???? Thanks-Jack.

Jack, are you selling us out for that old Lyman? Just kidding. I want a Montauk because of its fishability. Isn't your boat a side console? Or is it a center? Regards, Jay

Hi Jay, it is a bench seat model with the steering wheel on the center line!! A little easier to drive this way and for balance. It has side rails. Actually, I may need to sell because of the old addage "I need the money for bills thing!!". If you know anyone that might be interested, please let me know.Thanks-Jack.

Jack, what we really want is a Montauk. I saw your picture(the one that looked like me in college) along with your boat in Cetacea. It sure looks sweet. What do you want for it? Jay

Read my latest post:) What about that guy with the 97 hull for $8500 in Texas?

No teak! Also, put a new motor on it and I'm back to where I started from. How could you mistake a cracked block for a blown gasket. You weren't at your favorite watering hole when you made your diagnoses, were you Dr. Bigshot? Regards, Jay

Man you are tough crowd. The Yamaha dealer said the block must be cracked if it was not the base gasket. Then my bud said we'll use his 2001 c block. Then I ripped it apart and reassed the situation with a friend from Boatdoctor.com and viola. Now I am not outa the woods yet, I'll know when I get the gaskets and do a water test. But I am 90% sure the block is OK. All the problems were in the midsection, etc. How could someone lose rubber bocks....ah who cares. Let's pray for our fellow soldier.

Hi Jay. You know Jay, I still am not sure if I am going to sell it in the Spring, although I may need to, I really don`t want too. If I sell, I would take the best offer $5000 or over.If anyone has any offers out there, please let me know, you may be able to pry it from me, if the offer is right!! Thanks-Jack. P.S. It is in the Cetecea section on page 14.

JFM - I'm sorry but I don't see the logic of getting rid of a boat that isn't giving you problems.

Now you want to get the same boat, but it must be a project boat.

What will you saying when you take the project boat to Florida and the engine goes out in the middle of your vacation?

GA, I just couldn't see beating a brand new boat to pieces. My son and I fish Fla. in Apalach. 4-5 times a year. The oyster bars are all over and the tide plays hell to get to our dock on St. Georges Island. Many times we have to walk the boat to the dock from 200 yards or more with the bottom scraping. Also the trailer was a double bunk with no rollers and we had to put in 5 miles further away. My plan is to find an older Montauk, repower and add a trolling motor. Plus we made $3,000.00 when we sold the new Montauk. Regards Jay

There is a nice one on E-bay. 1988 with rebuilt engine.

Bigshot, where were you when I needed you?
3 years ago we were stranded on one end of the island, but it wasn't the boat ( Nisson Inflatable). We had a Ford Windstar stuck in the sand up to gills. Finally about 6 hours after we were stuck a beatiful young lady came by with an old Jeep Wagoneer and pulled us out. She had a string bikini on and was very well proportioned. My nephew, son and I still talk about her to this day. We all agreed that it was worth being stuck. So if it happens again and she doesn't come back, Bigshot we'll call you. Not, Jay

Nick, thanks for the heads up on the ebay boat. That looks more like it. Regards, Jay

How about you tell me where you got stuck. I feel the need to go 4-wheelin there and maybe forget to lock the hubs. You know, see what comes up. By the way...3 years ago I was in the process of buying my house so I doubt I was out boating.

Bigshot, right before the Plantation, turn right and go to the end of the road. She did live near by, but didn't tell me exactly where. Can you blame her! Regards, Jay
P.S. Be careful your Yammy might sue you for malpratice.

Jay-

Reading through a bunch of old threads on the dawn patrol this morning, I couldn't help but notice again the various literary references you seem to naturally generate, which reminder caused me to re-visit the subject of this thread.

From the first time I read it, there was a famiiar rythm and phraseology that made me think of the lyrics of *some* song, I just couldn't figure which one - am I out in left field, or is there a reference that I can't quite put my finger on?

Crosby, Stills, Nash...can't remember if it was with or without Neil Young...the 'ol braincells aren't what they used to be.

Thanks-(whew!)

Good news is I remembered there was something I was supposed to remember - bad news is I couldn't remember what it was...

Man, speaking of brain cells not being what they used to be...

Kingfish, perhaps the young lady that pulled us out was "The Cowgirl In The Sand". She sure had us at her command. However, she wasn't wearing cowboy boots or a hat or much of anything else. I told you all I was an old hippy, now do you believe me? Peace Man, Jay

Boy, I'm glad you guys got that title thing cleared up...

I was going to ask a few questions about it but didn't want to hit any more hot buttons..(not that you all are newcomers) but. decided to just take a wait and see attitude...

Speaking of old hippies...

I spent my youth (18-30) in Ann Arbor...during much of the '60s and '70s...hard not to be a hippy! And, I think our fearless leader, JimH, was there at the same time...maybe there is some kind of weird cosmic connection between hippies and Whalers...Groovy!

I can remember the exact circumstance, location, who was there and who I was with the first time I heard CSN&Y; I'm not quite as positive about this, but I think I heard Blind Faith the first time that same night. Wierd that I couldn't recognize that verse...I'm sure some of the stuff going on around that time has some bearing on my splotchy memory.

Hey, Tom - You must remember the Rainbow People (Party) and the MC5 if you were hanging around A2 those days, then. John Sinclair's fate and mine were tied closely together in a way very few people know about (and even fewer ever will).

Peace

Kingfish, like they used to say: "If you remember the 60's you weren't really there!"

Well, I was really there! ;-)

Just kidding...I remember the Rainbow People's Party and the White Panthers, the Ann Arbor Sun (the counter-culture rag), the MC5, the Stooges, the Red White & Blues Band, Savage Grace, Third Power, the Up (my friend Scotty Bailey was the drummer...we used to call them the world's skinniest band)...and a helluva a lot more...fun times!

It's funny you would mention John Sinclair...there was just a story in the paper today about the "Free John Now' concert in 1971...my business partner worked on the documentary of the concert..."10 for 2"...and I was in the audience. I got to see John and Yoko, Stevie Wonder, Seger and many of the bands mentioned above for $3.50...what a bargain!

No - still can't. BF resides in a CD in my house now, and I can't find it, either. One of my furshlugginer kids must be attempting to appreciate classical music.

Kelly, I got it, the flew that is. Thats why I've spent most the day on the computer. Are you an old hippy too. Far Out Man.

Kingfish, it's nice to know you are showing your children the finer things in life. Mine won't get in the Silverado with me anymore now that I found my Hendrix CD. "Are you experienced"? Yes thats the name of the CD for you old "Beatnicks".

Sorry gang the wife is calling me for some chicken noodle soup. Regards, Jay

Sorry about my spelling again. Kelly you gave it to me and I blew it, flu, flu ,flu. My wife read this thread and thinks I'm nuts. I told her that 18 years ago and she's still married to me. Perhaps I spelled flu flew is that I'm in the middle of reading "One flew over the cuckoo's nest". After this thread maybe I belong in there with McMurphy and the gang. Regards, Jay

Cowgirl in the Sand - Everybody knows this is Nowhere - side 2 band 3 (last cut, the wide one.) Down by the River, (my favorite Neil Young) was on the fip side.

I have all my vinyl up at the beach house... CSN (with the couch on the porch), Deja Vu, Four Way Steet (live), Blind Faith (with the naked cover), Cream, Traffic.

I was a hippy wannabe :( Anyone catch the movie 'Almost Famous'?

MC5 was about the biggest, brawniest, toughest looking bunch of characters for a rock and roll band, that I ever saw.
Ventura16 posted 12-10-2001 08:07 PM ET (US)     Profile for Ventura16  Send Email to Ventura16     
It was hard to miss the MC5 around Detroit and Ann Arbor. They played somewhere in town every weekend for a while. We used to buy beers for Rob Tyner and "Sonic" Smith between sets.
