Here is a link to pictures of my Montauk since the work is complete. New motor, hyd steering, awlgrip, teak, trim tabs, metal etc.
You may have to copy and paste, not too computer savvy, dc

Looks like you did a beautiful job. Congrats and good luck. By the way, that is a very interesting steering wheel. Like the choice of motors. How does she run with the 100 Yammy 4-stroke?

Again, gorgeous job.

Along that line, where did you get that 100? I'd KILL for that engine!

I just noticed that I have identical GPS and Fishfinder. How do you like that positioning? I haven't mounted them yet, and am considering options. Does the inward angle cut down on glare? I'm considering putting them closer together on the port side of the console, but then I can't really angle them inward. Anyone else done this? does it help?

Check out that wheel... that's certainly unique! Where did you get that?

Excellent job ! What did you use for the console instrument panels. Classy look !

I'd be interested in your choice of the cooler front seat. Fits so well. Mine is shot and needs replacing.

The wheel is a teak edson power knob model,(I think that is its proper name), when all the other teak was redone the old ss wheel just looked a little aged, so I went with the teeak one. As far as the panels for the helm I will find out exactly the name of the material, but it looks alot like formica, the guy who did those does the instrument panels on alot of the custom sportfishers built in coastal nc and uses that on those. For those who have considered it the trim tabs and hyd steering are a great addition, the extra weight of the 100 4s caused a great deal of porpoising and the trim tabs enable you to deal with that. Also if the seas have kicked up a bit, trim the bow down and it makes for a much better ride without sacrificing speed.
