What was the deadrise at the transom on those old Montauks?
I hear it's 16 degress on the new model.

Deadrise is measured on V bottoms. The old Montauk has a rounded bottom at the transom and deadrise cannot be measured.

In this picture, the hull bottom of the 170 MONTAUK does not appear to have any sign of a vee-hull configuration at the transom. It looks more like the rounded bottom of the original 16-foot hull.
In the specification sheet initially published by Boston Whaler in 2002 they make reference to the transom deadrise being 16-degrees.
I don't believe a specification for transom deadrise was published for the older hulls.

Thanks doobee and jimh. Those pictures are worth more than a thousand words...
I was asking because I know people have complained about the rough ride of the older Montauks. And I was looking at a Scout SF175 with 13 degrees of deadrise and was wondering how that might compare in terms of ride quality to these older classics from Whaler.
