Went out to the boat show last night. The Montauk on display was sharp, Merc 90, full cushions and bimini on track. $27,000.00, looks like I will be keeping mine or a while longer. This boat had the bilge pump plumbed into the splashwell. Neat idea, but my splashwell gets quite a bit of water into it from time to time, I hate to think it could get to the bilge as well.Ken

27k for a simple fishing boat? I'm loving my 95 Montauk right about now. As my Irish gram used to say...Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

I've been saying for a long time that most "Boat show specials" are sucker prices. A Montauk for $27M seems to prove it again.

The 2001 Montauk at the Cow Palace show had a
list price around 26500, including a Merc 70
four stroke, gas tank, radio, depth finder,
compass, trailer. It was boat show priced around
And I think you meant $27K, not $27M.

I had thought "M" was the Roman Numeral for Thousand. Isn't "K" a more recent term from the computer world? I'm confused as to which to use in reference to money. What is a "C" (Roman Numeral) note? A $100 bill? This isn't the first time I've been called an out of date "classicist" who needs to join the the modern world! One of these days I'll get up to speed and get myself a post-classic Whaler.

In my world M means thousand MM means million. (institutional bond sales) lhg I think you still are in tune with things! Keep the faith!

M = Mega, million. Computer nerds argue about
whether that 1,000,000 or 1,048,576 (2**20),
but I'd much rather have $27M than $27K.

How much is that in EUROs?

In trading international bulk commodities, M is thousands, MM is millions. M for mil (latin for 1000).
I always reconfirm when the symbol is used because confusion is common.
