It is true that whalers always had that "classic" look that people like us love but it is 2002. All things must change. I think the boat is a good first step. Lets face it-most of us want a little more beam and a litle smoother ride in chop. The new Montauk should give us both. One thing I wish my '77 Montauk had is the fill in of the rear with seats/steps like the new one has. It's about time. The HP situation seems to be a way of forcing Mercs down our throats which is disturbing but hopefully that will change. I'm repowering my '77 this year; keep it for at least five more - then look for a two year old (2005) model. The issues should be worked out by then. What do YOU think?

There are already several threads running concurrently about the new Whaler 170 MONTAUK. It woul be better if comments were consolidated a bit. I suggest you follow up with a posting to http://continuouswave.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/002035.html which is associated with the new REFERENCE section article on the 170 Montauk.
Please do not post follow-ups to this thread.
