  • Mako 17 vs Boston Montauk 17

    I'm hunting for my perfect boat. One in which is a great inshore/shallow fishing, on nice days some minimal close range off shore. And one that'll keep the wife and kids happy. Size matters due to the fact only place I'm going to store it is in my garage.

    From what I've read both these boats are pretty great. Does anyone have first hand experience with both these boats that can offer their perspective?

    The Whaler is a kidney buster. Go with a Mako. Better ride

      Both good boats. The Whaler has nicer fit and finish and typically holds a higher comparative value, but I would agree the Mako will ride a bit better in the chop.
