Re: 1971 16-footer 110-HP OMC V4

In my whaler experience, raising the jack plate and/or how the motor is mounted on the jack plate, if possible, will help in many ways including reducing porpoising and making for easier steering.

Re: 1979 MONTAUK with Tohatsu 90-HP

What is the engine mounting height?

In my experience with [a MONTAUK 17 hull and a Johnson 115] raising the [engine mounting height] [improved] boat speed and [reduced a tendency for the bow to oscillate up and down while on plane].

1972 OUTRAGE 19 Re-power: Fuel Used by V6 Engine compared to V4

I own a 1972 19 Outrage with a Nissan 90-HP two-stroke-power-cycle outboard engine. The 19 OUTRAGE runs well, but it is underpowered. I'd like to upgrade to have more power, but I don't want to put too much weight on the transom. This 1972 19 OUTRAGE was originally a sterndrive which was converted t...

Re: 1979 MONTAUK with Tohatsu 90-HP

The [WOT speed] range for a Nissan M90A engine is 5,000 to 5,500-RPM, and the gear ratio is 2:1. I have a 1972 19 Outrage with the same Nissan M90A engine. [For the 19 OUTRAGE] I have a Michigan Wheel APOLLO 13.5 x 15 stainless steel propeller. Top boat speed with a light load is in the low-30-MPH r...

Re: Cover Small Holes

Those are a great idea. I've never seen those, what section of a hardware store would they be in?

I'm the current owner of a 1972 Outrage 19, number 563 I believe. This boat started life as a sterndrive-powered boat, and it was converted to an outboard with NISSAN 90-HP on a setback jack plate in c.2006. In the old forums here there are some posts about what is now my boat. The conversion was do...
