What is the deadrise of a montauk? Is it 18 degrees?

The deadrise on a 17' Montauk is 16 degrees, on a 17' Outrage it's 18 degrees

The term deadrise is not really applicable to the 16'/17' hulls. It is a tri-hull with the middle hull being round bilged. Where would we measure deadrise on a Montauk if we wanted to? At the keel it would measure zero.

Tom, Bigshot, I refer you both to the "Performance Section" then to "Deadrise on a Classic Whaler" by jimh 10/04/01 then to scroll down to gunnelgrabber's post on 10/04/01, page 74.

I don't know who's right but when information is wrong I sure wish we could delete it. Don't shoot, I was only trying to help.

Here is the pertinant part of gunnelgrabber's post:

"i've got a jan. 1996 "sport fishing'. it has a tremendous amount of good stuff in it.on page 74..deadrise on a 17' montauk..16 degrees; 17' outrage..18 degrees;19' outrage is 20 degees; 21' outrage..18 degrees. their source isn't stated.i assume bw"

Be very cafeful about believing evrything you read.

For what it's worth.

According to Boston Whalers published specifications for the 17 Alert (Montauk hull) the computed dead rise is 16 degrees.

We've had this discussion before. On the 2nd generation Outrages, the original 20 was 12 degrees, which Dougherty later said was not enough, the 18 Outrage is 16 degrees, and the 25 outrage is 18 degrees. Not sure whether the 22, and later 20, is 16 or 18 degrees.

I've never thought of the Montauk as having a "deadrise", since the transom is not a simple Vee.

I understand the deadrise concerns the stern. For example, Kencraft 215 has a 18 deadrise at stern and there website has the bow/stern deadrise as 57/18. When just listing deadrise in specifications, it is the stern #. I continue to be confused on this subject. Appreciate the information.
