After reading the postings, I am concerned about possiblity of water in foam. How can I tell? 79 Montauk used in desert lakes in Arizona, Always trailered + garaged, 900 hours. Tubes in well look OK. Should I seal them? With what? No visible signs. What should boat weigh? Any suggestions?

You are OK, with no signs of corrosion of tubes and if your hull hasn't been holed.
Keeping it garaged in AZ would dry most all water anyway.
I think the idea of weighing a boat for water intrusion is ridiculous. I would think that the weight of each Whaler when it left factory varies as much as 10-15 lbs or so. If that is the case then you could have 2 gals of water in your boat and not know it.
Enjoy the ride with pride and don't get too paranoid about water intrusion.
My O2, Jim Armstrong
