Re: 1997 Outrage 17 II Re-power

I have the same engine on my 190 Nantucket. 3,000 rpms is not optimal for this engine. You won’t start feeling the power curve until you get close to 4,000 rpms. I run 25mph @ 4,200rpms. I have a 20” pitch, three blade stainless prop.

The 1999 Dauntless 18 had more interior room and storage space. The 2003 190 Nantucket rides better in following seas.

My previous boat, a 1999 Dauntless 18, had a hydraulic jack plate. The boat was a bit stern heavy so it was a help while on plane because the boat rode better with the engine up high and trimmed down but then again it was a different hull. It also added 60 pounds to the stern.
