Last Sunday, I launched the 170 Montauk at 5:00AM...just me and the fishing dog. Motored out to my favorite spot, dropped the troller, and started fishing from the raised bow area. After about an hour, I wandered back to the stern area of the boat, and noticed about 1/4 inch of water in the extreme rear deck area, the last two feet or so towards the stern. It seems I had left the bilge plug out. Probably would have taken on a bit more water had I not been standing on the bow the whole time. But 1/4 inch of water is nothing!
Can you imagine fishing for an hour from a bass boat with an open bilge?
Gotta love the Whaler!!! I know I do.
