Reain all the comments in "sad sad thing" got me to thinking about the price. I need some help . If a new Mercedes E-class,3500#, cost $54k, that is about $15.43 /lb. If a new Montauk(75hp merc and trailer) cost $22-25K, lets say $23.5k and weighs about 1500#, that is about $15.67/lb. Is the design and engineering in the same category for the price to be almost equal. Maybe Brunswick should look into their pricing strategy. It maybe be too low. I have a 67 16'7 and love it.

I also meant to add that Brunswick could lower its cost and selling price if it really wanted to , thus selling a lot more units and avoid discontinuing the Montauk.

Marty - do you pull you 16'7" whaler with your E-class? Serious question, I have a 300TE, and I'd like to go on a trip to Desolation Sound (from Seattle) next summer.

Taylor, you wouldn't be going to the tree houses would you?

Tree houses, what tree houses? I seem to recall George Dyson lived in one, but that's all I know. Do tel! Last time I was in Desolation sound Regan was a new president, and I was in a kayak.
No, I have a line on a cabin in Cortez Bay, Quadra Island maybe, if I get in the line early enough.
A Tahoe... does everyone have an SUV but me?

Nah, all grandparents in the family have sedans. Everyone else does have a SUV though.

My son sold his E320 and bought a ML320 because MB wouldn't give the E a tow rating. The ML does a fine job of towing a Montauk, but has to struggle a bit to tow a OR-18.

I tow my 6000 lb Baja with my ML JB and she tows it fine. hell of a truck. Get 17mpg towing the Montauk.
