Re: New, for me, 1986 18' Outrage

I went to order a console cover from Mills and sent Suzanne the picture above just to make sure it would fit. After review of the picture she said the console cover would NOT fit. Apparently when the helm was replaced and Baystar hydraulic steering installed the wheel is now more vertical then origi...

Sump osmotic blistering

My 1986 OUTRAGE 18 has some osmotic blistering in the aft starboard sump where water apparently sat over the years, consisting of quart-inch bubbles that are not broken. I am planning to ignore the blistering unless there is a risk of additional damage. This is not a pristine boat so I am not concer...

Re: OUTRAGE 18 Appraisal

The boat you are looking at is over 30 years old. In Florida it is considered by the registry to be an Antique. Do you look at it that way, or is it just old? I recently purchased a 1986 18 Outrage locally. It is in good shape but not pristine. It came with a newly installed 2005 150 HP Optimax with...

Re: Outrage sump pump

Thanks for the input. Jim, regarding the very expensive battery, I think I will pass. What about adding a 2nd battery next to the one on the starboard side? It would not be over a place with wood backing, but I could put the strap hold down screwed into the fiberglass with the hockey puck method. I ...

Re: Outrage sump pump

Thanks Jim, Yes I thought of that and there is a risk. Particularly since my engine is a 150 HP Optimax which requires 800 CCA to crank over and supply power to the starting systems. The sump pump should draw very little on "automatic". My new battery is rated at 125 minutes reserve capaci...

Outrage sump pump

On my 1986 Outrage 18 I am planning to install a pump in the aft starboard sump. I understand this was an option in 1986, but my boat does not have one and apparently there was never one installed. My plan is to use a Rule 500-GPH fully-automatic pump, which I happen to have on hand. I will wire it ...

Re: New, for me, 1986 18' Outrage

I was getting ready to order a console cover for my 1986 18 Outrage and it all of a sudden struck me that I may not have an original console. Below is a picture of what I have. Was this an original standard console, an optional console or from a larger Outrage?

Re: Selling MONTAUK--Talk Me Out of Doing It

So what will selling it do for you? Add some dollars into your checking account? If you need the money sell it. Otherwise keep it. You will regret selling it if you don’t have to. It’s a beauty.

Re: Outrage Drain

When the new tank was installed it was not foamed in. It rests on KING StarBoard pads with neoprene attached then glued to the tank. Then held in with metal strips across the tank top. Any water in the cavity will run to the rear. A clear 1/2” tube is installed such that water that gets in can be pu...

Outrage Drain

On my 1986 OUTRAGE there is a cockpit sump and drain on the aft starboard side to make the cockpit drain as designed. There is also a tunnel at the top of this sump where the fuel line runs to the tank. It appears to me, on my boat, that when a lot of water such as from a heavy rain, needs to be dra...

The wood I have on my 1986 Outrage all appears to be teak, except the under Gunnel rod holders. One of the bottom ears on my under Gunnel rod holder broke off and with the inside exposed the color has a reddish tint with very straight grain. It looks just like the mahogany I used on a deck a couple ...
