I was looking at page 33 on Cetacea.... I love the molded rear cover on the Montauk.
Where is the world can I get one?

Isn't that cool!!! I know of only two of these. I understand that Jacobsens Boats in Seattle made them during the late eighties and sold them with the Montauks. A friend has the other one and promised I could pull a mold off it if I bought another 17. Anybody else want one.......

I would love to have one (regardless of cost). I guess it is near impossible short fabricating one myself.....

If the dimentions are the same for a newport I'll second that!!I think that it makes for a clean stern. If anyone knows where to find one...pass it on. Thanks.

I certainly liked it as well. How can we get them? I have been toying with the idea of making an aft thwart seat using teak. I like the molded seat better. Rex

I have a teak bench, but I really do like the molded unit. For me, the ultimate would be a molded cover, nicely trimmed out in teak. I wonder if Jacobsons still has the mold......

I also would be interested in one of these covers if priced reasonable. Mike

I met Bob Jacobsen at the Seattle Boat Show today. He fabricated the mold and made the bench for the Montauks. They sold them on almost every boat. They have not been a Whaler dealer for many years now. He is going to search for the mold and reply to this page.

I have a friend that had a '72 16/17ft. that fashioned virtually the same thing out of teak. He used it to house his batteries and fuel tank. Definitly cleans up the interior. I think it's a great option. If I can find some pictures (15-20 years ago), I'll send them on to jimh.

I am Bob Jacobsen we built the molds for the Montauk rear seat/cover shown in the pictures. At he time we were the world's largest Whaler dealer. We originally designed it to cover the oil tank and battery and clean up the rear end of the Montauk. It took very little room in the boat and made a good seat too. Whaler provided us the non-skid moulding so it matched the boat well. I am trying to re-locate the mold and if you are interested in purchasing one e-mail me at If I can locate the mold (its been a long time!) I will e-mail you directly about it. Glad to see someone cares about the old (REAL!!) Whalers.

I just wanted to bring this thread to the top. Did anyone hear from Bob Jacobsen? Did he find the mold? I emailed him, but no response. I didn't want to miss out if he had found it...
