Hi everyone,

This post goes out to owners who have a late model 2004 or a 2005 170 montauk. Can you please check your owners manual and see what the date at the bottom of the manual says.It is on the page that has the drawing of the whaler.

Mine says "revision C 11/20/2003. I find it hard to believe that BW hasn't created a 2005 manual.
A few of my other documents say 2003 as well and some were wrinkled and certainly not crisp. Wonder if this paperwork is recycled from another boat.

Also, was your manual called "Owner's manual supplement"? Is there a bigge rmanual that comes with the boat that i didn't get?

Any help on htis would be very much appreciated.

Not a Montauk owner, but I recently noticed they started posting manuals for the boats on the Whaler website. I looked and there is a rev D for the Montauk. What I got for my boat (a couple of years ago) was a manual (like the one on the website) a warranty card, commissioning checklist (filled out), and other paperwork related to the sale.

My 2004 170 was purchased last July. The boat had just come in to the dealership from the factory. The only boat manual I recieved was the "Owner's Manual Supplement" which also is "Revision C 11/20/03". I also recieved a pile of instalation tempalates, wiring diagrams, ect. as well as a mercury manual for my engine. Sounds like you recieved the same materials. Everything was in a red zippered nylon Boston Whaler bag.

Sounds like your pain of waiting will be over soon. I know your going to enjoy your boat and all these new boat headaches will be history.

P.S. Years ago when I first started trailering boats I was trying to get my boat off the trailer at the launch. After awhile a couple of old timers decided to help me push the boat off the trailer. A few minutes latter a croud had formed and someone asked me if I had removed the Tie Downs!!! Ever since that day I've carried a check list around because you'll discouver there is alot to remember and boat launches can be hectic places.

Enjoy your new Whaler!
