How to you allow for the transom thru drains when you poured? When you made the pour did you put a spacer/brass tube in place and then poor?

Sorry it took me so long to answer. I have not looked at my project album site for awhile. After almost 4 years of use, the Stern Bench Seat still looks like new. There are a few scratches where the seat abuts the side rails, but these can be sanded out. I would not do anything else differently. You can't believe all the looks and conversations I've had with other boaters when on the water. They all think it adds to the charm of these old Montauks.

HRBertram on June 18, 2014 - 3:42 PM
The freeboard is similar to the classic 13's, in this boat the wide beam and light weight allows the it to rise over waves and wakes better than the 13's. The high and wide bow does a good job at keeping large seas out. To keep steep water from breaching the gunwales, you need to approach steep water either head on or at up to a 45 degree angle from the bow. So far I haven't had more than light spray in the boat, the low transom and splash well bulkhead, combined with a throttle punch, would allow most of a swamping to go over the transom (I've done this in my Eastport a few times when I've stuffed the bow on a large/steep sea), the 1100 GPH bilge pump would take care of the remainder.

Thanks for the compliment.
I just keep the anchor in the anchor compartment. I do keep a rubber mat on the bottom so the anchor does not scratch interior gel coat. Because the Montauk's have a bouncy ride, I'd be hesitant to have some sort of exposed bow anchor mount.

dahshore on March 22, 2014 - 1:05 PM
great ideas, I have a 1974 montauk 17, little storage. Do you have any ideas on anchor storage? Previous owner had a bow rail mount where the anchor shank would be hitting the hull all the time. I was thinking about some type of bowsprit?? All ideas welcome.

I'm not totally convinced they were cracks, some say it is bleaching effect sun causes through the cracks that were in the gel coat.
Never-the-less, I worked a layer or two of fiberglass mat over the area (trying to keep it thin) and called it fixed. Knock wood, 5yrs later it's still solid.

It looks like you have gotten almost all the wet foam out. Is the brownish/yellowish stuff wet? I would treat all the plywood exposed with the best cupernol/woodlife chem you are still allowed to buy. I have never poured the foam others have used in rejuvenating Whalers but it seems that you are close to that point. It is great that you have shared. I wish I was IT literate enough to load pictures of my Whaler adventures.

I really dont know what i would have done differently, well if i cad a bigger shop i would have flipped it over and done all the imperfections on the bottom, it has seen som bottom within its 35 years. Other than that, i dont know. Oh, yes, the windshield could have been replaced with a new one, but after polishing the old one, it looked very nice actually.
I have not compromised in any way conserning the quality or finish of the new hardware or the way things have been restored.
A disturbing amount of time and money have been put into the details.
My brother Thor did all the wireing, thats his proffesion, and after paying for the hardware and cables, im pretty sure he bought the best stuff out there.
And after replacing the old Merc, the boat have an all new apperance. before it was a "restolook", now it is simply a beautiful, bad ass 50 knot piece of machine.

I have read multiple posts that mention that Whalers should not have drain tubes at the bottom of the transom known as a garboard drain because the hull is foam filled. I have a garboard drain - as I see your 1983 has. So was the garboard drain standard on the 1983 and maybe other models? If so does anyone know why? There has been suggestion that this drain be fiberglassed over due to the possibility of water leaking into the foam.. Can anyone shed some light on this?

The idea of NO handrails or bowrails is deliberate, and one of the many reasons I wanted to design my own boat-- from scratch. They are a weak link, which bend and break with clumsy docking or clumsy guests. They keep you from getting into, or out of a boat easily. I now have some small rail hand holds on the center consule only for travel purposes.

Hey CES that is very nice. I just stumbled on your project today. I am doing a similar addition to the console on my newly acquired 1966 Currituck. I wanted to be able to stand not sit. I left the existing flat console top in place and built a 14" tall addition on top that will house the steering and throttle and tach. The existing flat top will become a shelf of the new. Yesterday I also made my own windshield and just attached it for picture taking. I am so lame about computers that I can't figure how to post but I will try to e-mail them to you.

Very nice results on this refit.
I do like the color co ordination that you made with the Bimini top and the covers from Mills.
The red rub rail now has something to relate to instead of standing alone and seemingly as a bit of a clash in my opinion.
This one will score a nine out of ten.
Bravo Thor.

I think that if thru-hulls are properly maintained, (i.e., replaced when needed) there is no need to take out perfectly good thru-hulls. I believe there are a number of other whaler owners that can attest to just maintaining their boat properly as not having any issues through the years....That being said, my thru- hulls were literally rotted out; I would hope that a new boat wouldn't have leaky thru-hulls! - just my opinion.

I just went through your project pictures and I'm extremely impressed with the job you did.
But it raises some questions about possible mods I should make to my new 190 outrage. Assuming the thru hulls are still manufactured the same as in your case.
If so this seems to be a weak point of BW design. I'm thinking of removing the thru hull tubes, enlarging the hole, replacing the plastic tube with copper or bronze. and pouring epoxy into the void around the new thru hull. Then any leak that might occur in the future would be contained inside the epoxy instead of leaking into the foam. I've used a similar process on my last boat to preclude water entering the wood between the glass layers on the deck and flying bridge.
What do you think?

No, the foam definitely did not dissolve! It absorbed the water like a sponge; weighed down the back tremendously. As I said in later posts, the boat definitely jumped up on a plane much better after all the work was done.

Finnwhale: I'm contemplating exactly yhe same repair, but on a slightly older vintage (~1970, 13ft standard). Did you hollow out the foam in the hull to replace it?

mtown on May 1, 2011 - 6:43 PM
Amazing job. I think I got the cause of all this as the thru hull that is in the starboard well [below deck] failing and letting water into the sandwich cavity. Did you dectect any moisture in the transom itself? I assume that it is plywood encapsulated by the glass. The approach you took through the splash well is unique and the photos are very enlightening. I have a 1985 18' that is kept on a lift so I pray never to go where you've been. I will sure as hell look at my thru hull next time I am at the boat though.

Clocked her at about 38 last weekend, but I think she could do better with the right prop - fortunately I just took a big chunk out of the prop so I can justify buying a nice new one!
When I bought her she was a wreck, and had a tiller-control 30hp on her - I could do about 25 and felt almost out of control in any chop. This last run a few days ago I had her full throttle in some decent chop and it was a cakewalk with the NFB steering, proper seating, and balanced weight distribution.

If you are interested, a discription of my project is in the current list of new threads (tank repalcement outrage 22). I plan to cope with some similar issues as you have.
My question is: if you pour foam into a confined space, what are the caveats? I have a void of about 1.5 ft3 between the keel mold and the upper deck mold housing the fuel tan, an area about 19" long 12" wide 5 = 6" deep. I have cleaned out the cavity and resealed it. I would introduce the foam (SeaHawk) though an 1 1/2" opening.
If I can controll the temp (boat is on MV) do I risk distorting the deck from pressure? Will the foam penetrate into cavities on either side of the keel?
I have kept a record of the process so far but have not been successful in posting it. How did you do it?
Would much appreciate your comments. E.S.

The reason for the tongue was to keep the truck out of the water and not take up additional room in my driveway.
The chain is one long set. I wrapped them with hose to cut down on noise and keep them from sagging. I did cut them shorter otherwise they would have been much too long. It works pretty well.

I think it's about the same year as the hull (1976) and motor (1975) but not positive... it's certainly around the same era, and I just love the look of it. I don't want anything modern-looking on the boat, so I looked far and wide for this... even managed to find a new sticker for the Evinrude Simplex logo - the original silkscreened aluminum plate is behind it, but was quite worn.
I plan to strip and repaint the whole unit - silver/gray for the body of the control and the sticks, and a repainted red throttle handle to match the other red highlights (bimini, trailer, keychain!).
Also, the seat cushions are temporary until I get the upholstered cushions (white with red beading).

Any other updates? I'm at about the same stage with mine as well. I haven't tried using any chemicals to get the bottom paint off. The most effective method has been using a strong pressure washer then a sharp scraper. For the very stubborn paint, a belt sander and palm sander finish the job. My hull is heavily blistered and cracked in areas and am finding it necessary to take it down to bare glass.

So basically you just needed to extend the length of the tongue so you didn't have to back down the ramp too far with the truck. Do you keep the boat in a garage? If so, then your boat would still fit just by swinging the tongue back. At some ramps, I wish I had a longer tongue. Thanks for sharing this info.

The 2000E fills small cracks and such and is a good sealer. I sanded again with 220. And finally sprayed on the primer. I will be sraying the final coat of color soon.

Nice project. Hope it turns out well. I did the same thing mounting my two batteries in the console. Unfortunately I wish I had moved them forward a bit more so that my feet don't bump up against them, but that's minor.
Good luck!

make sure you put the blocks in the same orientation as they do when they build a foundation or they can crack and ruin your day (and health record) It looks like you have done this on this boat.
Rather than use one set of seperate blocks on each side of the keel in the rear of the boat, I use 3 sets cinderblocks with 6x6 on top and then block the boat between the 6x6 and hull w/4x4's or 2x4'. this way if boat shifts or gets bumped, it won't fall off one stack of blocks- the 6x6 and 3 sets of blocks are more stable

Hello Blue_Northern,
I'm just about to start a rehap project on my own 19ft 1975 outrage, and before I attempt to cut out the floor as you did, I was wondering how did you put it back in? Were you able to reuse the old one? if not, what sort of floor did you put in?
My reason for asking is mine too has, what I think is, a substantial amount of water in the hull. After reading your posts, I recall you saying that you had good luck drying out the foam by removing the floor, and rolling it into the sun for days on end.
Any advice you have to lend of this boat rehab would be great....

Allenpoteat, the price was right. The restoration is a labor of love but very enjoyable for me. I used Soy Strip for the bottom paint. It worked very well. The remaining paint I sanded off with 100 grit and a 6" pneumatic random orbital sander. For the gel I used Spectrum. Very expensive but they do have the original colors. With a little modification the color match was perfect. You can't tell it was re gelled even around the hull stencil #. I am pleased with the results. Good luck with your project!

HI,
I'm about to embarb on my own rehap of a 1975 19 Outrage, and found these pics and comments very helpful. I have a question to ask before I begin; My boat weights roughly 2,600 lbs as she sits, no motor & a full tank of gas. I know they say these should weigh 1,500 dry and fresh off the line. That would mean my boat has 1,000 lbs of water in it? Can this be true? and if so is it too far gone to save? Lastly; how would one go about draining at least some of the retained water out over the winter.
Thanks .....Luke

It's still holding. as long as it is used to fill dents and and low spots it has held up great. There was one spot I used it to fill a hole and it did not work. over the years it cracked loose.

Hey Thor,
I see that you bought the boat..
She looks good enough.
OK;
As far as the measurements are concerned;
The teak hatch measures 16 3/8" by 42" long.
The hatch has, as you can see rounded edges and is held together underneath with 3 cross members of the same material measuring 2" wide and measuring 12 7/8" long
The two outer ones are specifically positioned @ 1 3/4" from each end of the under panel.
It will be noted that each outer end edges on the two members mentioned above will be rounded off in order to fit the inside edges of the boat's fish well.

Sorry, I thought I had taken plenty of pictures, through the repair process, I must have lost them. I used all MAS Epoxy products for the repairs. Alot of sanding of course. I sprayed on an epoxy primer, then sprayed on 4 coats of U-Tech paint. U-Tech is the same as DuPont Emron. As for the interior I am going to build a new one out of utile, similar to mahogany, just a little harder. Send me a PM about the old interior. I will probably sell after I make my patterns.

ritzyrags on August 11, 2009 - 7:41 PM
Yes Joe;
It is the cap section that a lot of the guys will have given up on upon buying those models.
I have understood through careful assessment and study that there is three grade of fiberglass in the model's components of this model.
And all three of them with a different degrees of fiberglass density and hardness.
The cap has been discarded in some of these choices for aesthetic or a non willingness to repair .
Inept docking practices will be the reason for this kind of damage.
The cap was refasten by using stainless fasteners;
An emergency repair at best.
I do remember my disapproval the first time that I felt the section with my hand.
And then, did look at the port section and saw the same...
And understood that the same "operator" had been docking this poor girl in need.
View Project Album Comment
ritzyrags on August 11, 2009 - 7:27 PM
Well;
The black is actually from the primer coatings from the cap section taping in phase one.
Look carefully at the bottom of the cap section meeting with the deck.
There is a U shaped molding encapsulating the bottom section of the cap/locker section separating the cap and deck fiberglass sections.
The molding has been crushed in some areas and was remedied by slicing the whole lip section off with my fateful cutting wheel;
Leaving a clean and workable surface..
Ready for a makeover.

It is factory 1/16 fiberglass backed nonskid paneling.
The very material part that will cover the rubber vent hose tunnel from the tank below to the vent orifice on the Port gunnel side.
And a largely contributing factor in water intrusion to the tank cavity on this specific model.

I like the black rub rail better also. If you haven't checked the weight do that. we have the same boat with a 25hp Johnson and it scoots at 19 MPH with one big guy in the boat.

See how she persorms at to whether it is worth openning her up.

Thanks, I'm still here studying the site everyday. I'm in builders withdraws though now that I'm done. I don't have any excuses for the honey do list that grown. The lucky part is that since it is a boat there is always something left to do. I really can't wait til this winter so that I can get the wood done and hopefully freshen up the motor. The floor will also get redone as I got to carried away with painting over the texture (griptex), It is dangerous on bare feet. I tried to blend a shine issue, it will be rectified this winter. This particular picture was a week at the lake and sea trials. My neighbors couldn't believe the boat was almost 50 years old. The best part was when the boat flooded after a severe storm, I jumped in the swamped boat (10in. of water) pulled the plug and the boat slowly drained. The neighbors were awestruck.

Clembob, this was the first go around with this boat just to get her going. I used fuse blocks and terminal blocks to keep everything neat. This time I will do the same but plan on moving everything to the bow side of the console and putting a large fuse panel with auto style pull out fuses. I am going to flush mount my radios where the wiring is shown in the pics. All wiring this time will be up high and to the bow side to allow for storage. The batts actually sit on the deck through the floor of the console relieving the stress to the console floor and making for more storage. Oh and a interior light in the console as well is neat. I will post more pics when I get to that point.

The switches are for the nav. lights and anchor light. Beside the tach is a 24V power outlet (cigarette lighter style).

if it was anything like mine, they ran some where other than the rail( somewhere in the hull). The easiest way to rewire would be under the rub rail.

Hey folks, new to this issue...
I need to rewire a 17' Whaler.. How do the wires run through the hull?
View Project Album Comment
Turpin on November 7, 2008 - 6:47 PM
Digitalvet, it is 14 gauge as far as number of strands i'm not sure it's "very" fine strands. this wire is very flexible almost rubber feeling which makes it easier to pull through. I didn't really preload it, I had pulled it through to make sure i would be able to get it through later I attached steel wire and pulled that back through ( hand soap made it easy pull and won't be an issue when I paint).

yes this is a water pipe type tube that I used. The foam that I am using is Great Stuff it may not be some peoples first choice but it has always worked perfect for me ( the only problem I have experienced is holes from bubbles that have to be refilled after it cures). It's easy to use, trim, sand, cover and is very durable. I don't have pics of the inside yet but the tube comes out the side beside the console location.

We have the exact same boat -- my parents had it before us when it was new! Our 1974 thirteen foot "Picnic" needs her starboard harness re-wired from stem to stern, plus re-wire the bulb socket on the bow light, and it would be nice to re-chrome that, too. I guess the rub rail ought to be new, too, after looking at yours! Beautiful job you've done! I brushed on "seafoam" Awlgrip, and it turned out well. Can you offer sources or how-to advice? Happy boating, Pam Welton

The clear coat on the epoxy would best be a very resistant UV clearcoat. After I put 3 coats of epoxy on my wooden boat with okume ply and exotic woods the finsih coats of 3 layers of quality varnish was beautiful for one year and then started fogging and hazing under the coats throught the epoxy. After more time the topcoat began its typical scabbing. I had to sand it all off with mixed results. Now I would simply oil and be happy periodically oiling with a rag. And I would use pure oil not one with varnish that adds gloss. I learned my lesson. For harher environments I like Cetol for more troublefree maitenance

As an outside observer, my guess is he used the same material used to line truck beds on the interior. I have talked to a lot of boat painters who recommend it for its plyability, durability, and sound deadening qualities.

The rod holders are held in by 2 screws at the bottom inside of the tube. You need a long screwdriver to get them out. Or, there is also 1 small screw on the bottom outside of the tube. You may, or may not, be able to get this screw out depending on the orientation of the tube in the RPS, but if you can, this is the easiest way.
