1997 Outrage 17 Trim Tabs

I may install trim tabs on my 1997 Outrage 17. Give me a recommendation on which trim tabs to use.

What should I watch out for [when installing trim tabs on a 1997 OUTRAGE 17]?

I re-powered with a heavy engine and the boat runs bow-high. You take a pretty good beating in a chop .

Thanks

1997 17 OUTRAGE II Fish Locker Gas Struts Manufacturer’s Part Number

My 1997 17 Outrage II came with gas struts on the fish locker door.

What is the manufacturer’s part number for the gas struts?

Mine are completely gone. Thanks

Re: 1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

To finish this one up, the Suzuki 14 x 20 propeller is the best option. The bow comes down quickly when transitioning to plane. The Suzuki DF140 accelerated to 6200-RPM at full throttle with boat speed 43-MPH. At 4300-RPM the boat speed is around 30-MPH. Over all I am happy with the set up. Thanks f...

Re: 1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

The engine mounting height is one-hole-up.

Every propeller I have run so far has been made by Solas.

I am not sure of the brand of the “20” propeller that is is being ordered from Suzuki.

We are in the Wolf Bay area.

Re: 1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

The “listen to the the engine” advice is good solid advice. The 21 pitch prop did well at 4400 to , 28 to 30 mph. I pulled 6000 at wot trimmed . The dealer I bought the motor from wants me to try a 20. I plug for this guy:. If anyone here is in coastal Alabama or NW Florida,. Bill at Cotton Country ...

Re: 1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

Thanks for the responses. The motor was rigged with a 17 pitch 3 blade Solus. It was way off the mark. I ran a 19 today and it is closer to what i think it should be. Just picked up a 21 and will update after I run it. Thanks again.

Re: 1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

I went with the Suzuki DF140 engine. I am working through the break-in. The manual says one hour and 45 minutes at 3000-RPM. The Suzuki DF140 engine really bogs at that engine speed. To any readers who have a Suzuki DF140 or DF115 engine: what propeller does your engine have? I am slightly underwhel...

Re: 1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

Thanks for the replies.

For VTVFR to answer:

Q: Did the [OUTRAGE 17 II] boat with the 425-lbs [E-TEC] engine weight do “ok”?

Q: Were trim tabs needed?

Q: Did water come in the boat via scuppers when the boat was not underway?

1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

The Yamaha 115-HP engine on my 1997 OUTRAGE 17 has died. I may buy a Yamaha F115 or Suzuki 130.

Any information [about the re-powering of an OUTRAGE 17] you may give me is appreciated.
