It was sold to a young couple living on the water in Clearwater. They are selling the Scarab and want to do more fishing and (crabing) said the young lady.
Thats what I love about the Boston Whalers, you can buy one and enjoy it for four years and make a grand when it sells and I still get to keep my gps. Thanks El President (Nick).

I'm new to the 17' Whalers, but am in the market for one.

It is the Newport hull with a Montauk console. Basically a Montauk with a bolt on deck that surrounds the hull topsides and supplies some storage and footing. Mine was a factory made custom ordered boat. Probably only a few dozen ever made from the factory...mainly due to being expensive.

Are the green hull decals stock or after market. Are they

They were custom made by Magic Brush so yes they are still available. I do all my whlaers in different colors...just to be different. My current 13' was done in navy blue. The Newtauk decals were custom by me...half a Newport decal and half a Montauk decal, looks factory though because I used factory decals. There is also a matching green Mills cover, gree bimini and the trailer has matching green tire cover etc.

Thanks for the reply, do you have any contact info for
Magic Brush. I'm new to this Whaler game, having just
bought a 1994 Montauk which I am picking up this weekend.
Can't wait. I've been running and maintaining a Classic
1965 25 Bertram since 1969. She is a better boat today
than she was when new.
How did your boat run with the Jack plate on it? Any problems having one on a Montauk?

Would not own an outboard without a jackplate...EVER!
