On Saturday, My good friend Wbullwin helped me trailer home

My first boat a 2009 Montauk. I cant stop looking at

it. Cant stop smiling. Now to rig her out, what

fun, looking for a fish finder, depth finder,

with speedometer, able to be read in the sun,

while going 25 to 30 MPH, any suggestions?

Great choice you made for the Montauk 190!

That IS a great boat.

Check Northstar for GPS/sonar Smartcraft integration, if you are into that sort of stuff.

I've got one on my boat and have been able to get most of the SC stuff to work.

Congratulations. You're going to love that boat. Are you looking for a combo unit with GPS/Sounder? I have a Garmin 545s. The transducer came with a speedometer paddle wheel. I have no idea why a mechanical speed sensor is necessary when you have GPS.

Great boat I have a 2007 with a 115. Very seaworthy.

Congrats on the new boat. You, myself and Wally will have to get together at Turkey Point. Take a look at the new Lowrance units. I'll be ordering the 7 inch for my new Dauntless.

Just another month until I pick up my new 2008 Montauk 190. Bought it a few months ago and spring can not come soon enough. What is the proper trailer hitch height to the top of the ball? Has anyone installed some type of after market seat in the aft areas on either side of the livewell? Looking at the Outrage 190 there were some back rest cushions. Has anyone used them on a Montauk 190?

Those aft areas don't make great seats. Get or install the seat over the live well and the front cushion. I usually clear everything out because I am fishing but when I "entertaining" I put in the front cushion and the livewell seat and there is plenty of room for people to lay out.

Did you make any decisions yet? If not, do you want a GPS chartplotter, or just fishfinder? What is your budget?

What kind of power do you have attached to that new Montauk?

I went with the 135 Verado. When I looked at the Montauk the dealer had one with the 115 and one with the 135. The 135 setup cost about $4,000 more but I have 2 kids that cant wait to water ski and tube so that extra horsepower seemed necessary. I have not had a first hand experience with either motor so I am anxious to see how this 135 Verado performs.

The new HD Lowrance sonar/gps units look pretty amazing.
I saw them at Cabelas recently and they are worth considering.
