Re: 1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

In response to the questions:

A1: The boat handled the weight just fine, but I would not want to have a heavier motor.

A2: I don’t have trim tabs and don’t feel I need them.

A3: The boat remains dry with the scuppers above the waterline at rest.

I repowered my 1996 Outrage 17 II with an E-TEC 150 in 2013. I replaced the original 1996 Evinrude 150.

I have a 1996 Outrage 17 with a 2011 E-TEC 150 mounted two-holes up. After experimenting with a few propellers I settled on a Mercury ENERTIA with a pitch of 15.

Re: NYC to Quebec via Hudson River

I live on northern Lake Champlain and I can confirm that it is not uncommon to have 2-3 foot chop with a very short period between waves. Typically during the summer the prevailing winds are from the south, so given the lake's north-south orientation it can get rough on a windy day. My boat is much ...
