Re: 1997 Outrage 17 Trim Tabs

[The observation] that [trim tab installation can cause interference with trailer tie-down straps] is correct, but [the interference] can be overcome [by modification of the location on the trailer for the trailer end of the tie-down strap]. I bought an 8 x 8 pressure treated post and cut it on a ba...

Fuel Hose Damaged While Installing Barb Fitting

I replaced my fuel hose years ago. I do not remember the brand [of the replacement hose], but the hose was blue. This spring (2019] the engine was cutting back once [the engine accelerated] to about 4,500-RPM. I found the liner [of the unknown brand fuel hose installed as a replacement years ago] ha...

Re: Desert Tan Color in a Two-part Paint

I removed a small piece of the deck from my 1989 Outrage 18' and had a quart of Dupont Imron (I believe it is now Axalta Imron) matched. It was pretty darn close. I can't guarantee my Desert Tan will match your Desert Tan, but I can upload a picture of the formula if you want it.

Re: 1985 OUTRAGE 18 Bimini Height

I don't have access to measure mine right now but here is a picture. I'm 6' and can stand comfortably under it. I believe mine is the Mills Sun Top, it only has the one bow. [Looks like a Flying Top—jimh] It used to be on Gambler, I bought it from Dave about 5 years ago.

Re: 1986 OUTRAGE 18 Cockpit Deck: Identify Purpose of Fasteners

Look carefully (forward of the fuel fill/vent hoses) to see some of the holes that receive the fasteners under the aluminum plates. You can't see the four screws holes in front of the console that you are asking about, but I'm almost positive they are similar.

Re: 1986 OUTRAGE 18 Cockpit Deck: Identify Purpose of Fasteners

I believe [the four fasteners in the deck of a 1986 OUTRAGE 18 boat are there to] help anchor the fuel tank cover to the fuel tank cavity. I remember removing them last year when I pulled the cover, then remember reinstalling them when replacing the cover. There are 50 or so screws around the perime...

Re: VERADO Replace OEM Power Trim Motor

I've had some luck cutting a groove across the head with a dremel and using a large screwdriver - but use the p-oil first.

Look for a picture on 10/22. My boat is about 3 hrs away and I won't be down there until that weekend.

Re: OUTRAGE 22 Console Mounting Bracket

I replaced my aluminum plates this summer with 6061 T6 alloy. I sent the dimensions to a company called Metal Supermarket and I picked them up the next day. I am in Houston but there are other locations across the country. The plates were received cut to size, I just had to bore and countersink for ...

Repair OUTRAGE 18 Hull Damage; a Casualty of Hurricane Harvey

My 18' Outrage was left in its covered boat barn while we evacuated Rockport [Texas]. As you can see from the picture below, there isn't much left of the boat barn or the stuff I had hanging on the walls. Unfortunately, something hit my boat with enough force to punch a hole in the hull. In doing so...

Re: 190 OUTRAGE Trim Tab

I used the Lenco 12x12 edge mounts on my 1989 Outrage 18'. Completely different hull but it looks like we might have shared the same concerns with the hull geometry. I did have to cut the mounting flange a bit so I could slide them all the way against the transom protrusion (I am sure there is an of...
