I've got a few guard rail screws in my '96 Montauk which have stripped. I'm going to fix them using marine tex, but I'm curious to know if I will run into any wood back there when I'm drilling?

Your boat is from a rather transitional time when Whaler was switching from using plywood for backing to phenolic resin board (Whaleboard). I have wood locating diagrams for both the 1995 model year Montauk and the 1997 model year Montauk.

In terms of backing for the side rails, chances are that it is 1/2" plywood in your hull. Only the backing for the bow rail on the 1997 drawing indicate Whaleboard.

BW switched to Whaleboard in June 1996, in other words all 1997 model year Whalers had Whaleboard.
