I am thinking about removing the deck on my 20' Outrage. There are no problems, I just want to give it all a good cleaning. Is this a bad idea? What, other than the fuel tank, is under there? Thanks for the great forum. SB

Hey guys, this is a major task! The tank is the only thing there and it is foamed in place... you must chissel the foam from the sides of the tank to get it out... if you are having tank problems then it makes sense.. the fill neck, hose and vents are at the stern as is the ground connection... the cover is very heavy and once unfastened and unsealed may require two to lift up and off the stern connections...etc... at this point you can inspect the topside of the tank and all clamps and hoses, fittings etc.
I've been there! happy Whalin'... Clark.. Spruce Creek Navy

Somebody must be wondering about this situation, so this will save it for another year.

Mikey-

My curiosity has been killing me about yanking up the deck on my 22 - I may decide to do it over the winter next year...Anyway, I would be way more than grateful if you would take as many photos as you can showing just how everything looks and what is going on under there while you have the lid off. Digital or scans would be great if you'd e-mail them to me, or I would happily pay for processing and postage if you use standars film.

Thanks in Advance-

John

See Cetacea apge 22 for an "opened up" Outrage floor.

JCF - Do you have a copy of the Outrage owners Manual? There is factory picture and detailed description of an uncovered Outrage 22 gas tank installation. Let me know if you need a copy.

Ill get some digital photos together for you guys.one cool thing I found was that bw installed weep holes or small drains to go between chambers and run out into drainable areas.Every deck I have had off has been full of debris and gunk, these really need to be upgraded.I use sched.40 pvc pipe and some 5200.This seems to work real well at moving around any extra water that gets below decks.When you get your deck off I think that you will be surprised at how easy it is for water to find its way below,a good drain route is really important.photos soon.

The date's 2000 because it was started last
year. The SW we are running is only supposed
to keep threads for a year.

Kingfish,
Call me the next time you are coming down my way. I have the mate to DIVE 1 stripped to the bare hull inside. If you really feel ambitious, bring your old clothes and I will teach you my non-skid technique. I usually coach from my lawn chair - ha ha.
