Re: 2007 Outrage 210 Re-power

I own a classic Outrage 22, powered by an Optimax 225. This 225 is a strong engine. While it is a bit noisy at idle, I find it to totally fine on cruise when wind noise becomes more significant than engine noise. I went from 2-stroke to 4-stroke on my Outrage 18. I liked the quiet idle, and didn't m...

Re: Outrage 22 Stored on Roller Trailer

I respectfully disagree with the previous post regarding roller trailers. I’ve seen both an Outrage 22 and Outrage 18 with minor depressions from sitting on a roller trailer. It will really depend on how the said roller trailer supports the boat, and how many rollers are sharing the load. Fewer roll...

Re: 1986 Outrage Classic 18 foot - engine height

There are a few others with a Honda 130 on the Outrage 18 and they are seeing low to mid 40’s top speed WOT. The Outrage 18 I had powered with a DF140 Suzuki would just touch 44 with a light load, but I liked it better when under-propped for a top speed of 41-MPH, because I got better acceleration f...

Re: Outrage 22 Stored on Roller Trailer

The top aft edge of the transom shows a crack across the full width. This may indicate some moisture in the transom, which is repairable, but adds more uncertainty to the health of the hull. I too would suggest looking for another candidate.

Re: Dauntless 220 Re-power

This has been a good read. I would consider the [Suzuki] DF200A if ever re-powering my Outrage Cuddy 22. If this [220 DAUNTLESS] were mine, I would still look carefully at the engine mounting height, as suggested above. If the engine is too low, performance and economy is not yet optimized. A whaler...

Re: Boston Whaler Introduces the 2018 170 MONTAUK

Many of these numbers (except the LOA) are very close to those of the classic Outrage 18.
If it packed more fuel, it would almost be its equal. Beautiful boat.

Of the many possible used Yamaha choices, it depends a lot on how you want to use your boat. Do some searching for Outrage 22 repower, and you will find accounts of everything from F150's through F225's. Lighter is better. Current four-stroke-power-cycle engines include the 490-lbs 2.8-liter F175 or...

Guardian 22's had a max transom weight specification of 720 pounds, and many treat this as a good guide for the Outrage/Revenge models. Also, if your boat has the 129 gallon fuel tank, transom weight is a larger concern due to the fuel load being carried further aft in the boat. If you have the 77 g...

By adding weight to the stern of the boat with the larger tank, the weight balance is going to move further aft. I'd suggest considering a modification to reduce the chances of water coming over the stern and on to the floor, which is pretty common in a following sea with the pre 1989 22's. In consi...
