Montauk 170 - Stern Seating Reinforcement

Boston Whaler started installing the reinforcement for the optional aft seat option on Montauk 170's manufactured from January 2006 and up. The newer style aft sun/lounge sternseat option (offered in 2008?)would also require the additional reinforcement.
If you have a 2006 Montauk 170 make sure it was manufactured in 2006 before exploring OEM aft seating as an option. My Montauk 170 is a 2006 model but was manufactured in 11/2005, missing the boat (pun intended), by 2 months.
That said, if you own a Montauk 170 manufactured before January 2006 here is one option that was referred by Chuck Bennett at Boston Whaler.
Company name: Anderson's Manufacturing
Hope this helps all looking at an aft seat solution for their Montauk 170.

Crap, for 1500 bucks my guest can stand. I think that seat would look pretty ugly, just my 2 cents

1,500 is pretty steep I admit. I think once the seat is in the boat, and conformed to the step seats, your eye won't be drawn to the support struts so much (the ugly part).

I just e-mail the company to see if they have images of the seat installed in a Montauk 170. I also asked how they secure the seat to the hull.
To Be Continued....
