1997 OUTRAGE 20 Adding Trim Tabs

I have re-powered my 1997 Outrage 20 with a new 2017 Evinrude E-TEC 150. I may add trim tabs to to help smooth the ride when the bay and seas get sloppy. I assume I should be looking at electric tabs rather than hydraulic operated trim tabs. I am unsure of the brand and size. I do have a transom mou...

Re: OMC Engine Gauges

Engine gauge problems are at last resolved. After testing the [Voltmeter] with a meter I determined the [Voltmeter] was bad. Fortunately the local whaler dealer had a matching OMC [Voltmeter] that popped right in. The problem with the TRIM gauge was not in the wiring but in the external sender lever...

Re: OMC Engine Gauges

Thank you Jim this is most helpful. The wires that were removed from the gauges were those from the engine wiring harness. The gauges remained in the console and remained daisy chained for the lighting circuit. Blue, Violet and Black (common ground for lighting) I may have placed the harness ground ...

OMC Engine Gauges

I have a 1997 Boston Whaler Outrage 20 with Evinrude Ocean Pro 175. I am looking for a wiring diagram for the [engine] gauges, specifically the TRIM gauge and the [Voltmeter]. I had to remove the console to replace the fuel tank. As well as I thought I had marked these two gauges, the trim gauge doe...

Re: 1997 Outrage 20 Fuel Tank Replacement

Anticorrosive Macropoxy is an epoxy coating of the aluminum tank after manufacturing. it is to prevent corrosion, I assume it is a manufacturer specific coating. a quick search turned up the following from Sherwin Williams paint products. not sure if it is the same that FMT uses Macropoxy 80 MACROPO...

1997 Outrage 20 Fuel Tank Replacement

The [Florida Marine Tank or FMT] 87-gallon fuel tank in my 1997 Outrage 20 has rotted out. Where the aft end of the tank wall meets the bottom of the tank [there is] a fairly large hole; I can get two fingers in it. I assume it not wise to try a repair. FMT quoted a replacement for $1,400 plus freig...
