Trailered my 170 up to Montauk and hit two curbs! One on each side of the trailer! Both front and back lites /lens popped out of the grey plastic fender... What does everyone do to keep the soon to have to purchase 3" x 1.5" lites in place??? Not a good rattle proof fit!!! Now I am even poorer....HC

HOLYCOW, This is good info and will watch for this. I really tried not to hit anything today trailering my Montauk home from the dealer. Barney

I lost the one side then the other when my friend pulled around those curbs... I first noticed the lights completely missing then he hit another curb and the other fender lights were out of the grey plastic fender! All that was left was two tangling wires??? HC

What is the best way to keep those light in place??? Silicone or screws??? or put a wedge at the back side of the fender???? HC

Other than not hitting curbs a dab of silicone should do the job.

Holy Cow, I looked at mine and thought a small stainless screw through the rubber into the fender would hold each light. Barney

Well the good news is that Whaler is going to replace them as per Ez Loader and Ocean View Marine in New Jersey... Rick does a great job taking care of his customers. He listened to my plight and really went to bat for solving the missing "Fender Light" problem... This showed me that Boston Whaler really does care as seen from its dealers to the manufacturing plant people who make the acceptionally fine water vessels. I was going to go out and replace these light on my own, but with the help of this forum and Rick at Ocean View Marine; I have even more respect for the Legendary Montauk... Going to Block Island and back on the 27-the 29th really helped tell me that Yeap these are pretty incrediably built vessels... Thank you to all... Dan

Holy Cow, That sounds great and I will keep this in mind. I took my 2003 Montauk out today for the first time and thought the performance was great! My prior boat was a Regal 1900 LSR 4.3 liter stern drive. This montauk even with 4 stroke moves out and would beat it out of the hole. Barney
