Can someone please give me a link for canvas work for my Montauk 170. I would like somekind of shelter made for the bow part of the boat. Maybe to get out of the sun while sleeping on the bow cushion.

You can see the Mills shelter on a 170 here...
It fits well and is quick to raise and lower.

A well made accessory, and very functional - particularly if you boat in colder areas. But you pay $1089 plus shipping (self install) for it. And they never seem to come up in the Mills clearance sales.
You pays your money...

Yesterday I placed my order for the Mills forward shelter for my 170. It did cost $1089.00 plus tax and shipping so the total came to $1262 ($80 dollars shipping, which really sucks since the co. is on Long Island and I am on Long Island. I just don't have a car big enough to carry the carton.)
Anyway, I was told by Mills that it is def. a one person job and that it was easy. I have read the previous posts (and will re-read them) and know that that may not be the case. I will lay it out and if i feel it is beyond my comfort level, I will have a place install it.
Whale tauk, thank you for the pics. I can now show them to my wife so that she can get an idea of the size and coverage of the shelter on a 170. I had to argue to get this (considering the cost)and she needs to be out of the sun at times...this will be an awesome purchase.
I will post pics when it is completed. I hope you all can bear with me in the coming weeks as I am sure I will have questions.
They told me a 2 week delivery time so hopefully by the beginning of flounder season i'll be able to escape the cold.
Thanks for all the help and all the best to everyone,

For $ 80 or less Mills should install. Why not just take your boat to them?

Yes they do install but Greenport is on the tip of the north fork of Long Island and is quite a drive from me....about 2 1/2 -3 hours one way.
Plus, I don't want to trailer my boat that far and then drive back...Also, though I didn't ask this, I can't be sure they'd do it the same day so i'd have to make the trip twice.
I'll pay the 80 bucks..lol...good idea though if i was closer.
