WTB. Used, in good condition, BW '89 Montauk cooler/cushion and mahogany chocks, bow cushion, and the two CC backrest cushions. Trying to match my original RPS cushion style so not looking to buy new. (703) 492-0939.

The does not make any sense. Matching the OE style is perhaops the most compelling reason to buy new cushions from Lois Hall:

To further Tom's point, one of the beauties of owning a classic whaler is the numerous vendors that still manufacture the original item or manufacture a new one that is extremely close to OEM.

Halls is the only manufacturer I know that produces cushions that match the fabric/color/piping/texture of the original. She can provide you with the console seat back (referred to as a rod holder) cushions and the cooler cushion.

For the cooler, a 96 qt Igloo marine cooler is what you want. The only difference between it and the original (84 qt) is the height. Due to the taller height, install it with the hinges facing forward.

As for the cooler cleats, there are a few people who make them.

Here is a photo of my '87 Montauk with a brand new cooler and cushions from Halls.

Great thanks. I didn't see any Hall's cushion photos at their web site. I have emailed them asking to see them. Yours look great. Those are the style cushions I am looking for. Think my last Igloo cooler was 72qts. Quite a leap from 72 to 94. Is there any in between or will I just be happier with the 94? Have seen a few CW threads on this subject. Thanks.

You will do much better to call Lois Hall on the phone. I do not think she checks her email all that often. She is a very nice lady with many, many years years of experience. She does outstanding work.

Igloo 72 quart or 94 quart, those are the two choices. The 94 quart does not work well if you have the console rod holders AND rod holder cushions.

WTB cushions: Does anyone have any leads on the used coolers/cushions? Does the 94qt work well as a bench seat/storage in the stern right behind the RPS? If yes, does it have to be chocked with more holes in the floor? Thanks.

Casco,

I looked at the photo, what do you have on the deck?
