Author Topic:   150 Montauk - change in non-skid pattern

I was looking at the 150 Montauk in the Atlantic City boat show and I noted that the non-skid pattern was different from the traditional BW pattern find in all other models. Actually, the 150 Sport had the original traditional non-skid pattern but not the 150 Montauk. I kind of like better the traditional old pattern versus the one used on the 150 Montauk. I think it is still adequate but the old one seems to have more grip. Does any one know why they changed?

I was at the Philly boat show and asked; the rep said that the new stuff is easier to keep clean, although he did admit that it is not as grippy. Did you like the boat? I am considering it and on the fence with respect to the livewell - it takes up a decent amount of room, although it does provide additional seating.

Hi bben, thanks for the insight. I really liked the boat a lot. I think it feels bigger than a 15 foot boat. I did not see the livewell option but looking at the manual on the website I think it takes too much space for my liking. I would really like if they would offer a compass as an option and maybe a higher horsepower engine option.

I am with you on the too much room. The one I saw did have it and I tend to agree it does take up a lot of room for a fairly small livewell. Also with the livewell, it did not seem that in-boat water drainage would be as efficient..there were about 3-4 spots where the water would drain back and into the bilage area, which incidentally, was lower that the floor deck.

I have question about the captain's seat. Does it move back a forth freely or does it lock into place in three different places? I've seen similar seats on other boats that lock in the rear, forward, and middle. Thanks

The RPS (captain's seat) locks in three different positions.
