I read an article that quoted $65-75K (https://boatingindustry.com/news/2018/10/08/minnesota-based-montara-boats-introduces-surf-pontoon/)

Do you have any more pics of that beast? Like what does the hull look like? I'm headed to the boat show here in Chicago this weekend but it doesn't look like this vendor will be at the show. :(

The hull is like a tri-toon, but the front of the three is all connected like a tri-hull boat. It has a surf platform and of course surf tabs. Center mounted engine.

Gosh, I didn't even look. I got up in it and crawled around. It's of course super roomy. Has a crazy auto retracting bimini. Two captains chairs. The vinyl certainly isn't wakeboat quality. Gatorstep type flooring. They didn't make me take my shoes off, LOL.

Been a bit of a heat wave over here of late, temps around 39 to 42 degC over the past week.
Took Monday off work and chilled out.

Farrrk!
Good luck with the rehab and hope you're well on the road to recovery.
Broke my ankle 13mths ago and still not quite right but have been out wakesurfing.
Hardest thing I found was all the sitting around waiting for things to heal let all the muscles wane away. Found the rehab good for getting flexible again but just had to force myself to get out and about to build up strength even if it was a tad painful.
Hope other half is giving you lots of tlc :).
Cheers BruceR, Melb AUS.

Man that is a great looking boat!! Even with the cover on! Is that the cover that came with it or did you have it made? I only ask bc I know the new ones are gray.

I has it made by Cory with evolution covers. The black matches the boat way better than the gray and its custom made to be on while towing.

I see! I was really wondering about the towing. Does it scuff the gel at all? Was it expensive? I ordered my boat with a cover but am not opposed to having one make like that and selling the factory one.

No scuffs that I have seen and i tow a few thousand miles a year covered (yearly trips to Arkansas and such). Cost was around $800 if I remember right. Main thing is he stays pretty busy so there can be a lead time. I am getting Jim at Rinkers to look into getting me the cleat and fuel door covers that come on the Supra covers. If he can get them I may try to get them added to my cover.

Man I wish I would have thought about that as that is the cost of the cover from the factory.

What do the cleat and fuel door covers do?

rdlangston13
01-25-2019, 06:07 PM
Just allow access to the cleats and fuel door with the cover on. Right now if I am towing with the cover on and stop to get gas for the boat I have to take off the back half and fold it over to fill up the boat. A cover that unzips around the fuel door with allow me to get fuel without undoing the cover.

Same concept for the cleats with the boat in the water. I would like to be able to cover the boat while itís tied t a dock over night and the cover covers the cleats so you donít have access to them. Have the zippable covers for the cleats would allow me to use them when the boat is in the water covered.

I was actually just messaging with someone that had their dealer order an OuterArmor cover in place of the factory one. No prob.

Apparently there's also 5 other standard wheel choices on the boatmate trailers as well :)

I think the factory Supra covers are now made by outer armor.

Ya so I emailed him and he is booked into July right now which is awesome for him and I love that a privately owned made in the USA company is super busy!! I am definitely going to get a swim platform cover from him but I have to figure if I am going to order the boat cover from him as I am going to have to get the factory one anyways to keep it clean for the 3-4 months before it would show up. I already have enclosed storage for when the boat shows up but with the pollen in the spring I would never leave a boat uncovered.

Does anyone that doesn't have a trailerable cover have problems with cushions staying in place or do your boats get that dirty while on the road?

Unfortunately with the Makai being so new OuterArmor doesn't make one for it :(

I have the standard factory mooring cover but I do not tow with it on.

There's plenty of debate about whether or not the mooring cover will scuff your gel coat while towing. If it's a long trip, I know guys that will Saran Wrap the beltline before putting on the cover for travel.

I've been towing for two seasons now without the cover, no issues with cushions. Just make sure the windshield walkthrough is closed to direct airflow over the boat.

The boat stays clean except for the tower, cans and bimini cover...they are good bug catchers. Some Hula Boat Care Surf Away spray detailer & a microfiber and it cleans up easy.

My mooring cover really just keeps the boat dust free while in storage...

I am the same, but drop the tower to avoid all the bugs and crap on the tower. I have found that its best to remove the struts from the rear compartments... mine were bouncing open on the highway, so I pop them off for road trips now.

I see. Do you put the walk through screen in too or just close the windshield?

I am planning to get covers for the cans to use when trailering and storage for that reason. I definitely need to get some new cleaners... do the hula products work well?

I really want to get the cover from Evolution to trailer with but hate paying for 2 covers. LOL I know what a problem to have.

I don't have the walk through screen, I just make sure the windshield is closed.

The Hula products work extremely well. They are based in Austin (local Texan company) and their stuff is eco friendly. (Rinker's dropped Boat Bling and exclusively carries Hula)

They have some good starter kits that have a little bit of everything and they have gallon jugs of the stuff you'll go through a lot.

The must haves are the Gnarly Water Spot Remover, the Surf Away spray detailer and the Wipe Out Vinyl cleaner & conditioner.

Hold off on any boat cleaning purchases for now.

The products are safe to use with nano ceramic coatings...you simply won't need to use much of them because your boat will inherently stay cleaner.

Awesome! I was actually messaging with one of their people yesterday. She said that the Gnarly is a great spot remover but doesn't have any vinegar in it (vs Boat Bling) so won't strip wax or anything like that. I think she said they use fruit acids instead. I'll probably get what you listed, as well as the polish.
