Hi im looking to buy a Boston Whaler 17' Montauk. Pretty set on a whaler (only boat my family has ever owned) but if you have a 17-21 ft center console of another well regarded manufacture I would consider it. Im located in Santa Barbara but willing to drive pretty much anywhere in California. lmk what you have!
UPDATED: Not finding much in my price range, so if anyone has a 17-20 foot CC from another manufacturer I would consider it.

thanks, don't know how I missed that one, I found another similarly priced one in Santa Cruz but was a little hesitant because the engine is a 1983 mercury 115 (the power tower), but it hasn't been started in a while and when asked for service records on the engine he said he did some work himself, but when I asked if he could check the compression on the engines he just said he could take it to a marine service center and I could have them do it there, which kinda makes me think he might not be the most mechanically inclined (also don't want to pay them to do work on a boat that I might not even buy). Anyone know of any things to look out for on the power towers?
Beware of the one with Suzuki evinrude. I talked to guy yesterday. I was supposed to look at it today but I got stuck at work.
motor has some gremlins. I think I’m gonna pass on it.
power of towers are great. Just check compression. I had one for years

Have a 17 Montauk with 06 Etec on it. Great motor, no issues. Boat could use some cosmetic stuff here and there but not in bad shape. Functioning VHF + FF. Text me 415 827 0588. Would sell for $8k, not really desperate to sell. On a Pacific Trailer.
