Re: 1988 Outrage 22 Whaler Drive E-TEC 200 H.O.

Re: XD50 Oil

I was using XD50 in my old 1989 Evinrude 225 engine, and I was not pre-mixing the oil into the gasoline. I noticed no ill effects from use of XD50.. When I changed to XD50 from XD30 I noticed less smoke at start-up. I have upgraded my engine and use exclusively XD100 now. I hope this information is ...

Re: Repower 2007 Outrage 24

I recently re-powered an Outrage 22 Whaler Drive with a single E-TEC G2 225 H.O. My boat will do 44-MPH conservatively; the highest speed seen 47.1 MPH running downwind. Jim H has a 225 G1 on his Revenge 22 W-T Whaler Drive, and in a recent post had a top speed of 43.5 MPH. I would expect similar re...

Two of the additional passengers were novice boaters and did not like the speed, so these are initial numbe...
