It's been long time

Postby tropicalsun » Wed Jun 29, 2016 1:01 am

Hello folks. Some of you (Buckda, Elaelap, and Jim) might remember me: I was the "original" owner of GAMBLER, well, actually second owner but the guy who sold it to Dave. After all these years I'm looking at getting another Outrage. I'd be very interested in hearing your opinions on the value of this 1985 Outrage with a 1985 Yamaha 150-HP.

Because that photo was taking shooting into the sun, the boat is in silhouette and is hard to see. Thus I cannot offer any assessment of the boat. The trailer is also hard to see. A c.1985 Yamaha 150-HP ought to be a good engine; it's simple and should be reliable. An OUTRAGE 18 with a 150 is a great combination.

Welcome back to the forum and Boston Whalers!

Hi Rob! Welcome back. It seems I have the sad duty to inform you that Tony is no longer with us. He is missed by all, but I especially miss our frequent emails.

Hi Rob -

Glad you are back.
Despite the sun in the photo, I would say 7-9k. Remember the fuel tank if not already replaced will need it.
