Cleaning up the boat is the next thing I have to do after I finish working on my truck.

BostonAndy congrats on the Montauk. I picked up a 1989 a few years ago, repowered it, moved the batt to the console, new wiring, and have put a lot of work into restoring it (and still working on it). Definitely check out WhalerCentral.
Defenders and classic Whalers or old boats are a great combo

Looks like a great project. it should clean up nice!!!.. here is before and after of my last summers boat project.

John - impressive work with the Currituck to Nauset restoration! What year is it? My buddies 1969 nauset is a stalled project that is sitting in my barn. I did get a supersport interior for it...there is potential...all I need is about 1000hrs of free time and hopefully it could look like this (someones restoration that is my inspiration)

Yeah, throw a couple of tires in the trunk. Put it on the card. Radials. Make them whitewalls.

Yes, sir, Mr. Nussbaum!

I have two boats because I am a glutton for punishment. Here is my 1971 that was a monster project just a short time ago. It is well sorted and I plan on enjoying it all summer long. Because 55mph in a 16' boat is a freaking blast!


Before:





After a shit load of work:






I feel like we've been down this road before, but when I was a kid we used to tow this exact jet boat with our 1969 1-owner Mopar Roadrunner (*note: male mall perm and boys size 7-10 tshirt not included):

All that said, 2-days ago I finished up a lower-unit service (impeller, lube change) on my 1986 Baja Force 250. Affectionately called "Burgundy Lightning" for obvious reasons.

Great looking boat Rufus. I'm hoping I can get the dried out wood looking like that next weekend.

Oh, and if anyone's interested I have a crapload of British Seagulls that I want gone. You know the drill. Motor to your favorite fishing spot, tie rope around Seagull, throw it overboard and use as an anchor whilst fishing. When ready to go, pull up Seagull, attach to stern, start engine and return home.
I have (all long shaft) a silver Century with the big engine and 11" hydrofan prop, a couple EFNRL big 'Gulls with forward reverse, a Silver Century with clutch. A ton of parts to build a couple more.
I'd keep them cz they are so dear and quirky, but even the big EFNRL cannot push the fly-bridge laden Allmand into a headwind. I have a early 1950s Fastwin 15 for kicker duty.

The Chisholm's retired there after selling Donzi, but kept a few of their best toys. Those were fun days.

I am in Columbia.......about 2 hours away from Hartwell. Love the tower of power, when the 140 goes I'll probably look for an older Merc.

The engine covers are off the 25' Whaler and are in the paint shop. New decals going on as well to make the sun baked engines look better.

Mmm, a full shop at your disposal. I'd being willing to run a Rove business just to have an excuse to buy all the best tools and equipment. I don't even care if I make money.

H8 Florida. Hot. Flat. Located near other places I don't like.

Also, no need to buy a business to start losing money, I can just jump right in on my own!

Oh, boats are neat. I want a RIB at some point for tooling around Puget Sound.

No pics but I have been working on my Zodiac F470. Got the IMARS 35 Durajet back from the shop last week and the boat is coming along nicely.
Pics to follow.

Whalers, did somebody mention Whalers? this is my 83'. I'm on the 3 rd re-power and have pulled this thing from Canada to Florida. With the spring tide, my plans for fishing were delayed.

Lightly sand the teak then saturate it with many coats of a quality teak oil. What year is your Montauk? If you dont know check the HIN (hull ID number). Im guessing its a 1989 or 90 because the fiberglass bow hatch started then. Your control panels are in nice shape, which is a bonus. Mine is an 89 happy to help with questions because I started basically where you are with my restoration. You have a fun project ahead of you.

I like the no bow rail. Did you take it off, or was it stock with that setup?

Sunbrella, made by my local boat tailor. I removed the rails. Seems like the BW engineers designed it the perfect height so that it catches your nuts every time you stepped over it. An old timer told me to never varnish teak, it has too much oil in the wood. I use Cetol on the bright work of my Sandpiper. Lasted 9 years so far with occasional touch up.
