Many of you know our daughter Maggie as Capt. David’s favorite deckhand, and being Cap’s favorite means when she’s home from college her put straight to work on a cargo trailer we’re outfitting as a mobile workshop. #MontaukCatamaranCompany #FamilyBusiness #whatdoyoudointhewinter ...

Captain Dennis O’Grady was a good friend to the Montauk Catamaran Company; always congratulatory about our success, and always willing to lend his expertise when we found ourselves in a mechanical jam. That’s probably how most people remember him, always willing to help, always willing to lend a hand. He was one one the people who make the Montauk waterfront an more interesting place than most of the rest of the world, and with his passing our harbor just got a little more normal, and it’s a poorer place for it. Fair winds and following seas, Cap’n Denny. It won’t be the same around here without you. ... See MoreSee Less
If you’ve been on #MonTikiLargo you’ve seen her traditional wood deadeye, carved by Mister Joe from a nice purpleheart plank gifted to us by @antiquelumberco a few years back. We’ve still got a bit left, and now Mister Joe is in the process of shaping it into aka end cleats for #MonTikiMini. #montaukcatamarancompany ... See MoreSee Less
Cutting into a bird’s mouth spar always feels fraught – prime materials and hundreds of manhours ripe to be spoiled with a miscalculation or errant cut. But the time and materials are just as wasted if the bare spar isn’t fitted with the bits and pieces that make a mast; without them it is at best, art. Pretty, but useless. So we measure, think, measure again, and cut. #MonTikiMini #montaukcatamarancompany ... See MoreSee Less
Summer means setting some things aside for a while, even some things you enjoy that are good for you too. Off -season means time to pick them up again! #crewtrainingrun #takecareoftheequipmentandrheequientwilltakecareofyou #montaukcatamarancompany #Montauk ... See MoreSee Less
Have been in and out of Barnegat Inlet about 8 times, only once was it anywhere near as easy as Montauk Inlet. Big currents, ocean swells, sandbars on both sides, In Dutch "Barnegat" means breakers, and they're not kidding – a minute after this video was shot #MonTikiLargo was going over foam-topped rollers. Thrilling is an understatement! #MontaukCatamaranCompany #whatdoyoudointhewinter ... See MoreSee Less
Wade Devlin-SchererI regularly fish the North Jetty there. Have to wait 2-3 hours after stated low or high before current slows down. Appreciate the challenge of this inlet. Coast Guard comes out each morning and crashes into those inlet waves to keep ready to break out in any inlet conditions. Much success on the rest of your trip south.

Denise CooperMy husband has lived on LBI since he was born ... Even he is uneasy going out that inlet. He does not do it with me on board !! I'll take the zero.
Safe inside Barnegat inlet. Three knots of outgoing tide jacked up the southeast swell, making the trip through the jetty mouth a little more white-knuckled then I would have liked, and gave Capt. Gerry an appreciation of what a cakewalk Montauk Inlet is, even on the worst days! #MonTikiLargo #MontaukCatamaranCompany #whatdoyoudointhewinter ... See MoreSee Less
