In shuffling some papers at home came across the original paper work for my Montauk. The most interesting piece was the 1983 Boston Whaler price book that with every model and option (Frontier XC 25' outboard - 9' Tender).

I can't remeber if it is in Tom's DVD catalogue, but if anyone is interested I can scan it for reference.

(There were a lot of options back in the day, granted several work on various hulls. Couple of the unique ones listed, being: outriggers (p/n: 15 0241 00 - $345), stern deck assembly (p/n: 15 0661 00 - $773) and the mahogany rod rack (p/n: 15 0015 00 - $197).

(And no, you can not have it, it's for safe keeping with all the original paperwork...manuals, BW checklist etc)

Is there a photo of the mahogany rod rack? What models is it made for? This sounds like great reference material.

There were actually two Boat Prices & Specifications printed in 1983, one dated February 1, 1983 and printed in Red, and one dated September 1, 1983 (representing the 1984 model year) printed in Blue.

Both are included in the Boston Whaler Catalog Collection.

It have the FY 1983 price book (red).

The mahogany rack was a 3-piece set for the Montauk hulls. All pieces attach to the inboard side of the gunnels and railings (Stbd side only). One piece serves as forward bracket with large holes for the tip end of the fishing rods to pass through and rest in, and is located about even with the RPS and screwed to the interior gunnel lip (similar to the railing bases) and is notched to fit the railing. The two remaining pieces mate together about 4' further aft to make a lockable box with a small flat bait station, and when locked encase the rod/reels in said box. The lower half affixes to the gunnel and railing, and has the 1/2 arches for placing/resting the rod(s) into. Subsequently the upper half is removable and encases the reels, and has the appropriate latch.

I actually have one with my collection of original Montauk parts for the boat. I'll try and get a picture, but they are in storage, albeit with original varnish (but peeling in places). -- I have not had a chance to restore these pieces, as there are a few other cosmetic items to address on the boat. (rub rail mainly)

Thanks for the detail, kwik_wurk. I have a 1988 13-foot super sport, so the rack would not fit, but old catalogs are great fun and generate ideas for modifications. Thanks for sharing.

The lockable mahogany rod storage rack is visible here: whaler/ reference/ 16-17/ models.html#sakonnet

I fits any 16'-7" model

Thanks, Tom. A beautiful place to store fishing rods.
