1988 Boston Whaler Montauk repowered with 2006 (Installed Brand New in 2010) E-TEC 90 with about 250-hour. Runs like a top. Has always run full synthetic E-100. Best outboard around IMO
I bought the MONTAUK eight years ago and stripped her down to bare hull and compounded and polished the gelcoat inside and out. She still shines.
All stanchions and guardrails were polished and re-installed. Everything was rebedded with 5200 sealant.
I removed the fiberglass tank and replaced it with a 21 gallon aluminumtank with fuel gauge.
Battery box under console will store up to three batteries up to Group-31 size but Group-27 size is much easier to remove and put back in. Currently there are two brand new flooded-cell deep-cycle batteries for trolling and accessories and one battery for starting. All connected and controlled with Perko selector. There is a Promarine battery charger on board.
I had the instrument panel laser cut from Carbon fiber to fit instruments, battery selector, stainless 12-volt receptacles, circuit breaker switched for bilge pump, livewell, running light, and an accessory.
Steering cable, and Binnacle were replaced in 2012 along with the rest of her refit.
A few years ago I picked up an original casting platform. Teak is great but the gelcoat is not as nice as the rest of the boat.
Seat cushion is brand new from Specialty marine. Installed 1 year ago and like new.
The trailer could use some new carpet on the bunks but I after a 2016 bearing failure I replaced the entire axle, both spindles, new tires, and added bearing buddies.
Additional Equipment:
  • Minn-Kota Riptide i-pilot trolling motor mounted on quick-release bracket mount
  • Raymarine A50 chartplotter with platinum chart chip for Gulf Coast (if you fish for speckled trout in LA you will find a wealth of data and routes in here)
  • Reverse circulating livewell with oxygen regulator (if you have a connection to fill tanks this is a miracle for keeping bait alive. I can castnet pogies and keep them alive overnight if I want.)
  • Danforth anchor, Aluminum cajun anchor, windsock, basic lifejackets for 3 plus child, flare kit, horn
  • Cover for entire boat
  • Bimini cover in like new condition
  • Extra stainless prop (for a total of two)
  • Rod holders are teak and PVC that I made myself. They look close but are not original
  • I also have the Sheppard hook tube for anyone who wants to replace the custom tube in now which allows the ice chest to open.

I will be taking better photos and this is pre-platform and cushion but you can get a feel for her general condition. I hate to see her go but I just bought my other dream boat, a Allied 30 Seawind Ketch and have to offset some of the cost of bring her into Bristol condition. I appreciate inquiries from interested parties and comments on what else I should do to get the best sale. I am scrubbing her down, oiling the teak, and taking her in for an engine report. I am missing a jamnut on the windshield but I am pretty sure I have a spare to replace it.
