I finally broke down and bought a digital camera. I was out in the garage first thing this morning screwing around with it and here are the pics. The boat is kind of a mess with stuff stored all over and the pics aren't art but here they are. Note the raised center console and 22 degree angled helm with 18" wheel for my 6'4" frame. Rod holders have been mounted fore and aft. Cactus racks carry gaffs on one side and a nett and deck brush on the other. There's a 27 gallon Pate and a 28 gallon bait tank. I also included the Permatrim hydrofoil, stereo, VHF, chartplotter/sounder, antennas and pictures of the under dash attempt to clean up the wiring.

Next time I have the boat out of the garage I'll post some better pictures. I'm kind of preocupied with the purchase of a new fifth wheel trailer so the Whaler hasn't been out of the garage in a couple weeks. There's alot of little detail stuff on my skiff that I think is pretty cool. BTW that's me on the red bike. May make some sense out of my username.

Hey nice pics. How do you like the 28 gallon bait tank? I was thinking of getting one that size, but some people say it's too big for the Montauk. Have you had any problems with the extra weight in the back?

No problem, the 170 can carry the weight. By west coast standards 28 gallons is not a big tank actually quite the oposite. Any smaller and it would be marginal for a full days bait fishing It's happiest with a half scoop (2 brailers) of bait but on long runs I put a full scoop (3-4 brailers) in.
