I have attached a few pictures of our new 150 Montauk. Last week was the first week with it and it was great. Handled very well, although steering is a bit stiff, and was easy to manuver in tight places and shallow water. First impressions are all positive and after much hestitaion about the livewell, I am very happy with it.

Damn Ben, I can hardly wait to pick up my 150...Great shots!!! That livewell is really tailor made to fit the boat. It must have been particularly hard to leave her. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Great looking boat.
The livewell is a great fit.
Is that an option from Whaler or did you get that after market? I would like to know where to get one if you get the chance.

Thank you for doing the direct link to the pics...I am new at this posting pics thing! The livewell is a factory option. You can probably get an aftermarket one that is close, but this one is factory. It was a $525 option and I am glad I did it. While it is fairly small (maybe 8 gallons) it worked for my purposes (some live shrimp for bait) and it also provides a great seating and casting area. It also provides a nice storgae area immediately behind it. I was really on the fence about it but I am very happy I went with it.

How are you liking the bow rails? I'm undecided on this option as of now. They seem really high to me. The dealer has one in stock w/o the high bow rails but says they can build a bow rail to my specs. Not sure about that?

MBW, I am very happy with the bow rails. We have two young kids and they were a must but I would have done it without that as a factor. They really allow you to use the bow with more confidence for fishing or even sitting. The only negative that I was concerned about was whether they would inhibit docking - no issue for me, at least not where I am keeping the boat. I am not sure how I would feel about the dealer installing them...should be ok but I actually shopped around until I found one that had them from the factory.
Good luck and no matter your choice, you will enjoy this boat.

Great looking boat. After looking at many used Whalers I am going to the dealer tomorrow for a sea trial on a 150MT.

My dealer didn't have one in stock so I put a deposit on one that is on the way in.
Has anyone replaced the two 6 gal fuel tanks with a larger single? I think I would be happier with a single 18 if it will fit.

What a sweet boat! I particularly like the lievwell. Takes up a lot less space than a big cooler back there, and much more stable for standing on and casting. Whaler really did a nice job on this boat overall. I think they'll sell a lot of them.

bben does this tank cover up your bilge pump and screen ? Does this have any effect on it ? How many gallons is that tank ? Thanks for the pictures Art

Art, I'm not sure but I think it is about 10 gallons. It does not block the bilge pump screen or effect the draining at all. There are channels on eaqch side and in the middle to allow drainage to the bilge pump. The screen sits behind the livwell, creating a small storage area between the back of the livewell and the transom. If you go to the BW website and download the owner's manual you will see some good pics of the setup.

Awesome boat! If you don't mind, out of curiousity, what was the out the door cost for the 150 montauk?
posted 04-24-2006 09:05 PM ET (US)
Out the door with bow rails, livewell, fishing package (cooler seat, rod holders, tackle drawers, compass), suntop, mills mooring cover, swim lader, spae wheel/tire, bow cushion, PA sales tax (6%), registration for boat and trailer, dealer prep, coast guard pkg = 22,665.
