Nice pictures and a nice boat. You should join us for the May NorCal Whaler Rendezvous in the Delta. Check the postings in the Rendezvous section.

At first I thought Sacrilidge, A Montauk with no rails.. How can that be?
After I collected my thoughts, and looked at your pictures a few times it seemed to lessen the impact.
Your a braver man than I!
How does the Montauk move on all axis's with the trolling motor?
Did you attempt it at all with the rails?
Enjoy your Montauk!

Knot at Work:
First of all, look at the fishing rig I replaced.
My trolling motor seems to work fine. I've only used it in lakes fishing for bass so far. I've been jokingly told that I have a slow bass boat.
The first BW that I fished on, a Dauntless 180 with a fishing package, did not have a bow rail either. I believe it comes from the factory without a bow rail if you order the fishing package.
Anyway, some friends said that for my planned use of the 170,(Fishing in lakes, rivers, Sacramento Delta), that the bow rail would probably be more of a nusance.
I may want to put it back on after I try fishing off shore with the 170.

NICE BOAT WT

I've seen your setup. Very nice. I wish I had a 115 EFI 4 stroke.
I'm going to add a 27 gallon live well which will weight 234 pounds when full. My 2 extra batteries weight another 140 pounds. I hope my 90 hp motor has enough get up and go when I load 3 fishermen onboard.

I have a 18P Vengence stainless steel prop.
I'm getting on plane pretty quick now. But I've only been out by myself.
Thanks for the advice.
