Do any of the new Montauk owners have a copy of the whalebaord locating diagram they can e-mail to me? I am looking at the possibilities of additional equipment positions but the dealer doesn't have a copy for me. Any improvements I design will be submitted to the site.

I would be glad to send you a copy but unfortunately I will be away from the office for at least a week. Try Chuck Bennett at Whaler or Tabasco.

Thanks alot. I'm in no rush; whenever you get back. I did send an e-mail to the BW service address asking for the same. I'll let you know if they get it to me before you get back. By the way, I'm thinking about designing and building a seat with an integral fuel tank, rod holders, and more.

Check your email, please note that it takes a while for this transmission to download. I seriously considered changing the seat on my 170 to the Classic RPS. My dealer had one and after some deliberation, it was our choice to keep the one that came with the boat. I am glad that I did. The new RPS gives you a lot of versatility. And for what little time that I was able to use the boat, I can tell you that using the new RPS as a leaning post (in the second position facing backwards) is a very pleasant event. I said it before, I think that Whaler could have been a little more original with the design of the RPS. The weakness of the 170 desin is the lack of storage space.

You guys are probably exchanging that ridiculously large (over 5-MByte) file.

I have that diagram in a beautifully clear and detailed 100K GIF format, but the diagram clearly states it is the property of Boston Whaler and cannot be reproduced without their permission. Therefore I choose to follow their wishes and I don't reproduce it. If they want to make it hard for their customers to get information, that is up to them. It is child's play for me to post that diagram and give you a link, but in as much as the diagram is clearly marked as their property and prohibits reproduction, I am bound by that.

I would not like it if they started distributing my work on their website. So I play by the rules.

But if you want to exchange that file among yourselves, there is no reason it has to be 5-Megabytes. It actually looks much better as a 100K GIF.

Opps, I lied; it is 800K, but it's a beautiful scan...

shouldn't Boston Whaler be including the diagram with every new boat it sells as part of the documentation? My 1997 Dauntless came with one which I passed on to the new owner when I sold it last weekend.
