Giving the WTB a chance. The newer Montauk 17 is where it’s at for me. Let me know if you have one to sell or have a lead. Thanks.

okay - but the livewell from whaler will barely keep a squid or mackral alive - you are going to need a real live well from offshore/bluewater to hold sardines. Gas tank below deck a real benefit ? And as far as modern engines - find a old whaler with a shitty 2 stroke and throw it away and get a new Yamaha F70.

You can spend your money how you want though...

If you got a 2097 Whaler maybe they updated the bait tank above the standard single spray feed - lol - because that bait tank tech fucking sux for west coast bait.

Keep hunting cows or maybe your a clown hunter.

The stock whaler tanks are trash - not meant for west coast bait circulation what so ever - but what do I know...

Yes! That was me. Ended up being a broken Fuel line connector. I since gutted all plastic connectors and rigged it with brass fittings and standard outboard lines. How did it go with your rig?
Starter went out on the motor - Newly rebuilt Diesel engine and had the orginal starter motor - should be covered under my warrenty - funny thing is, same motor and same problem happened to my Dad. Anyway, hoping to get back on the water once the weather clears.

I can't fix stupid - if your bait tank has a single jet spray - you will have to learn yourself how west coast bait tanks work.

Here's a 12yr old post with some useful info...
