Re: Outrage 17 II v. Dauntless 16

I had a 1999 Dauntless 18 and now have a 2003 190 Nantucket. Though not an exact match to your comparison; it’s somewhat similar.

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

Make sure you check the wood around the thru hull fittings for rot. Boston Whaler uses plastic thru hulls that can deteriorate over time, and they may not have used enough sealant to protect the wood

I think you are on the right track. Raising the engine as high as you can get away with and finding a stern lifting prop (four blade perhaps) coupled with trim tabs should get you where you want to be.

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.
