I'm getting to the point where I'm just about ready to start renovating my 1989 Newport. The Montauk console has been ordered and now I'm trying to formulate a plan to get things done. For those of you who have done this type of work before, is there any set pattern I should follow? This will be my first time doing this type of work so I'm trying to simplify things as much as I can. Should I start on the inside and work my way out? Are there potential problems if I start on the exterior of the hull, compound, wax and buff, prep the bottom, paint...then start on the inside?

I kind of feel like I'm at a fine restaraunt, looking down at my place setting, trying to figure out why there are so many forks..and why is one for a baby? At Pizza Hut, they only give you one, and if it's not bent, your lucky...but the knives...why don't they have any teeth?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks again.

Hi Dave-- I like your metaphor about the table place setting.

I don't have any great advice, but I am curious about the new console you ordered. How much was it?

Hybrid Naming
Newport + Montauk Console --> Monport?
Newport + Montauk Console --> Newtauk?

Take some pictures as you go.

I ordered the console from Pelican Harbor in NJ. The saleswoman I delt with was great. The cost of the console itself was $590, when you add tax and shipping, it was in the $680 range. I was thinking about the complete setup but the price was just too much. The nice thing is I could have it shipped to me, just need to be paid in full before they ordered. Boston Whaler said it would take about 2 weeks to manufacture, so, in about a month, I'll really be in the thick of things!

How much sick time do I have a work? Cough!!! I don't think I'm going to be feeling well the day after my console arrives!

I was just looking at the boat a few mintues ago and even thought there's just so many things to do, it's in really great shape. I was going to do a total refit with the montauk rails but after I saw a "Newtauk"? posted for sale on boat trader, I decided I'd like to keep this setup for a while to see if I like it or not.

I work at Pelican Harbor,did you order a montauk console from whaler or is it aftermarket.I got a console from some place out in Texas that was around $500 and it included a windshield.

I just talked with Judy yesterday and told her I was going to send her a check for a deposit towards the console. My plan was to pick it up there because there are several parts I'm going to need, besides, I thought it would be neat experience. What place are you talking about? Would it be Meeks? What type of console was it? Was it Whaler or a copy? I still have the check in hand...I was going to send it Monday after I got back to school and found the paper that had it's exact price on it. Did that $500 include shipping? This could be interesting...

Thanks for the heads up.

unfortunitly I lost the recipt a while ago.I think the name of the company is fab tech or something like that they are out of Corpus Christi Texas.I found them on the web just by doing a word search for center consoles.the console has roughly the same dimensions as the montauk console except there is a seat molded into the front of looks a lot like a carolina skiff console.I will see if I can find them on the web and get you the info

I found it! Thanks again for the help. I think I may have stumbled upon their sit before, but never really took a closer look. I was thinking about the carolina skiff console, I owned one before and it was OK, but I didn't like the space it took up. They did have some nice consoles that didn't have the front seat, now I have something else to consider! :)

Thanks again for your help.

dave that $180 will be well spent when you try and sell. A NewTauk is good. A newport with a CS console is bad.
