Re: Raytheon L470 Outrage 18

Maybe the magnet has lost some of it properties and the sensor picks up sporadically. It worked for a while today then quick..

Thank you for the reply Jim

Re: Compare 230 and 240 Outrage

No way that I have to do actual comparison.

Ok. GPS speed check. Half-tank of fuel, no cooler, and one person. 39. Would touch on 40-MPH. 5300 RPM. Clean, no bottom paint.

Re: Compare 230 and 240 Outrage

My 2000 Outrage 18 has a Mercury OptiMax 135 and might run 40–but I doubt it, I will check boat speed with GPS on the river this weekend. As stated above the problem is when [the Outrage 18] is loaded there is no way it will even get close to 40-MPH, and it will not ride on plane with out a lot of t...

Re: Compare 230 and 240 Outrage

The problem is [a Boston Whaler 230 Outrage or perhaps other models] run 40 to 42-MPH only when just one person is aboard and about half-tank of fuel. I talked with a guy that has a 2000 23 with twin 135-HP engines, and he told me it will run 42 with just him and half-full tank of fuel. I cannot say...

Raytheon L470 Outrage 18

Looking for some help with a Raytheon L470 fishfinder. Everything works on it except the speed, it did work one day and quick. I checked the speedo wheel and it spins freely. It looks to be some sort of infrared that the wheel spins in front of. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mercury Tachometer

The tachometer on a Mercury OptiMax 135 just started acting up. At times at idle [the Mercury tachometer will read] 4000-RPM, and then will settle down to 900-RPM. At times you can tap on the tachometer, and [the reading will return] to normal. [Is the remedy to this problem to discard the tachomete...

Re: Compare 230 and 240 Outrage

I just like the maneuverability of the twins. I will not be offshore that far to worry about. Just something about twins that I like. Maybe I keep thinking that twins will give better performance. A lot of these outrages seem to be under powered for me. I found a nice 230 but it only has twin 135-HP...

Re: Compare 230 and 240 Outrage

It looks like Boston Whaler went back to the 230 Outrage and no longer makes the 240 Outrage. Why did Boston Whaler do this?

Are twin engines a better option on either boat?

Thanks

Re: Compare 230 and 240 Outrage

The 2004 240 Outrage has about the same transom as the 2000 230 Outrage. Am I missing something?

Compare 230 and 240 Outrage

I just sold my Montauk 17 and purchased an Outrage 18, but I am thinking about moving up to a little bit larger Outrage. I like the Outrage ride. I have seen single-engine and twin engine 230 Outrage boats. I am looking for someone that might have experience with a 230 Outrage. I know the twin engin...

[About 11 months later]

[My MONTAUK 17] is a 1992 Anniversary [model], and it does have the teal stripe, teal Bimini top, and teal full cover with matching color trailer. I have all the paperwork, books, and plaque for the 1992 Anniversary.

1992 Montauk 17 30th Anniversary

I just picked up a 1992 Montauk 17 30th Anniversary with a Johnson 100-HP G. The boat is very clean and original with all its original paperwork.

How many [1992 MONTAUK 17 30th Anniversary model boats] are out there?

Thanks
