Re: Source for Instrument Panels, Hull Decoration

Jim, Thanks for the lead. I looked at the transfer method of labeling the panels. I don't think the transfers would be durable enough for the exposed environment of my console. I also don't think I would be able to apply the transfers "neatly" enough for my standards. A closer examination ...

Re: Source for Instrument Panels, Hull Decoration

I've refurbished my gauge panels in my 1986 Outrage. I made new panels out of "sign" aluminum stock I salvaged. I elected to not pin stripe the panels, I just couldn't get the pin stripe to apply to my satisfaction. I'm going to do the switch panels this winter. One roadblock I've run into...

Re: 1986 Outrage Wood

I agree all the parts seem to be the same wood. How do you tell the difference between Teak and Mahogany? I went by one of our local wood working stores to pick up some plug cutters. They had some scraps of wood labeled Mahogany. When I brought the piece home and sanded it, the piece looked just lik...

Re: Outrage 25, Twin E-TEC: Minimalist Instrumentation

I built my own replacement panels. Scrap aluminum sourced from old road signs. Cuts easily with a regular circular saw. Cut the holes with the properly sized hole saw and my cheap $40 drill press. Primmer painted with zinc chromate primmer. Final coat with high temperature wrinkle paint.

Re: Cole Hersee M-121 replacement

Those Deutsch connectors and dust caps look perfect. What is the functional difference of the stamped vs solid pins/sockets? The proper crimpers look to be a bit pricey, so I would need to solder the pins/sockets. I usually try and avoid soldering. I am the self-appointed king of cold solder joints....

None of the existing holes matched the ne...

Re: 1986 Outrage, E-TEC 150

Thanks for the information Maverick. I don’t have a T-top, just a stock OUTRAGE. My old Yamaha swung a 19” pitch propeller and most of the information I have reviewed says most others are also mounting 19” pitch propellers on new ETEC 150s with boats in my weight range. So I think that’s where I wil...

Re: 1986 Outrage, E-TEC 150

Thanks Jim, Chuck left a large footprint. Yes, a 19 pitch 3 blade stainless steel propeller seems to be the most recommended, so that’s what I have been looking to purchase. I will look at the Enertia. I hope this upgrade is all that I hope it will be (it cost more than I paid for the entire boat).

My 1986 Outrage 18 started life with a 1986 Yamaha 150. I had a tachometer and a trim gauge. The Yamaha was still running strong, but a 30-year-old motor that has spent almost half its life in saltwater was just stretching my luck.
