[Our] new [Boston Whaler 2010 170 MONTAUK] should be ready this week. [W]e had a 2002 old style hull with a [H]onda 75 and can[']t wait to try out the new hull. Weather permitting, [is] anyone interested in meeting up to do some off shore trips this summer? [W]e launch at [R]ye [New Hampshire] or [S]alisbury [Massachusetts].

Welcome to ContinuousWave. I think that you'll love your new 170 Montauk. I'd like to hear your impressions comparing the old with the new.

I wish I had known you were looking for one. I would have made you a great deal on a slightly used 2008!

[I] hope we will get [the 2010 170 MONTAUK] in the water soon, as we are still waiting for the dealer to call and say it is done; maybe today!

Congrats on the new Boston Whaler boat. How much they gettin' for a 2010 these days if you don't mind me asking? I launch out of Portsmouth. I can rendezvous with you this spring if you'd like. I should have my 2008 Montauk 170 in the water by the end of April.

[Our 2010 Boston Whaler 170 MONUTAUK sold for] about $29,000.

You got your loaded, I take it, with canvas and live well.

No livewell. [I] make my own[.] [T]hat livewell is far too small for mackerel. [T]op, bow cushion, fish package, trolling plate--definately not "loaded" but that price was right in line with everywhere that we looked in [New Hampshire] and [M]aine. [D]ealers in [Massachusetts] were [asking] another four to five thousand. [U]fortunately no one is having a hard time selling them, so dealers aren[']t giving an inch on price, [charging] retail plus dealer charges[.] [O]h well at least we are back on the water! It is only money. [W]e didn[']t do ourselves any favors buying in the Spring, but there was [too] much going on last fall. We didn[']t want to miss this summer so, unfortunately, we paid top dollar. [C]ould be worse; we could have no boat!

I did the same thing. Bought mine up Maine in April. Paid [about $23,000] for a new 2006 with fishing package and bow cushion. No top but that only would have added another grand or so. I wish in retrospect I got some canvas, but it's something I can add later. Nice to NOT pay taxes on these purchases ain't it?

Looks like we will take delivery today or tomorrow! After some time is spent on the water i will post my comparison of the old style 2002 hull we had and the new 2010. Our 2002 had a Honda 75. Hopefully the extra weight of the new boat is offset by the 15 extra horses of the 90 hp mercury.

The boat will fly. Make sure you follow break in procedures on that engine. Which includes the necessary WOT test. With just me and 2 full tanks of gas and not very much cargo I was hitting 40+ knots at right around 6000rpm. This was on fresh water, flat calm Potomac River.

I have had my 2007 Montauk up to 42 mph at 6000 rpm. This past weekend, I ran it in 3-4 foot seas. It was a tense experience but the boat did its job and got us to our destination. It's also easy to launch, retrieve, tow, and easy on fuel consumption.
