Well, had some time on my hands this after noon, so I decided to visit a local Whaler dealer here in Pa.I already purchases a 2002 "old" hull model in janurary, but I had to see if I got robbed or not!
My feeling is I spent a bout 2 grand more then the same package in the new style.Even with' this fact, I still prefered my boat.
Something about the new boat left me empty inside. Although I never owned a montauk before, I grew up with them always in my summer memories.Skiing, fishing, and some good old cruzin the bay side bars and resturants lookin to hook up. The new boat didnt trigger those feelings and emotions for me.Rough ride...Hell it,wouldnt trade it for the world. I want my 7 year old son to enjoy the boat and come away 20+ years later with the same passion and respect Ive grown to have for the sea and the boat that always brought me home.

Good call stephen, the New Whalers leave something empty in you, they don`t scream out: "I am a Classic Whaler". They deffianately lack the whaler of old`s charm, and well, the Whaler feel. Jack.

Amen Tabasco. I have the classis montauk. Would have been nice to have that extra room to walk around the console when I hooked that 30lb king last monday.
