Author Topic:   New Guy...

I'm the new guy. I've been lurking for several weeks and after much deliberation, I decided on a 2003 170 Montauk, hence the name. We took her out today on her maiden voyage and it was fun but the weather went for the worst quickly and we had to cut our trip short. I hope I can be an active part of this group and I'll probably be doing a lot of listening and not much talking as this is my first boat eventhough I've been around them most of my life. I've got a few pics of the boat and also a few from the maiden voyage but I have no clue if pictures can be posted easily, any help is appreciated.

BTW, boat specs are:
-2003 170 Montauk w/blue graphics
-90 HP four stroke Mercury with SS prop
-Twin fuel tanks
-Galv. trailer
-Fishing package
-Custom moring cover

Added stuff
Attwood suspension motor support

I plan to name the boat "JD Montauk", what do you guys think of that name? JD is the first two initials of my only son, for now.

Also, I'm in the market for a handhelp GPS and I've been eyeing the new Magellan Meridian Color and I'll add a 64mb SD card with the MapSend BlueNav Navionics chart software. Does anyone have any comments about this setup or have any other recommendations for a color handheld GPS?

BTW, I already posted over in the classic forum while not realizing that I should've posted over hear. Oh well, live and learn...I got some good welcome replies over in the classic forum and now I need to give warm replies.

Thanks and I'll catch you all later,

As for the GPS...

I use a railing mounted Garmin Etrex Legend Mapping handheld unit. Perfect for my needs and a good deal at $132 shipped.

No wires or separate antenna...uses two double AA batteries and has a waterproof housing.

JD, Sorry man, I was trying to be gentle with the move. If you have questions though this is the place. I still have questions of the Attwood motor support, model # etc. Thanks Jim B

Here's a link to where I picked up my motor support. I got it at BoatUS, the item number is 378606 and I paid $36.54. Thanks for all your help too.


I posted to a thread you created just before you picked up your new baby. Cool pictures and great info, thanks.

Where can you buy a Garmin Etrex Legend for $132?
Maximus posted 08-12-2003 10:01 AM ET (US)     Profile for Maximus  Send Email to Maximus     
Garmin Etrex for $132 probably dead...this was done about two months ago...details go to

Pricematch's price of 149.99 to Staples online 1800 number of 249.99. Use $20 off $200 coupon from staples (5 diget, widely available).

-20 coupon
-110 110% pricematch (amount + 10% of difference)
+ some pricematch shipping from staples - BS
+ tax

= $132 shipped. :)

I got it, that was one screaming deal you negotiated on that GPS, you should have got a truck load and then you'd be a millionare by now.
