I am looking to collect as much info as I can on this particular Whaler and I am looking to the vast knowledge held by the folks here in these forums to help me get up to speed. Other websites? Schematics? Owner testimonials?

I may go looking soon for a classic 80's 25 outrage to buy but I need to know what to look for good and bad. Any bad years(like mako)? Max power? Single screw over twins? Problem areas in the hull to be aware of?

I am looking for anything and everything that will broaden my knowledge of this era whaler. Thanks in advance for all your comments.

PS. Remember, nothing is too insignificant to mention, since I know little to nothing about these boats.

Have you spent several hours looking through this website? There is tons of info here on the 25 outrage.

Point well taken.....


If I could only find a way to revive old posts on this site. Then I guess I would not be asking this question.

Reference section is helpful.....but....looking for more.

If I am missing somthing here please let me know.

Cliff, aside from the fact that "lhg" has a beautiful 25, I think you can find out a bit by going to the photo section "Cetacea" which has an index, there you'll find lots of photos and commentary on the 25 OR's, then check through the old post by expanding the view from 10 days to last year in all the various topic sections. After that exercise, if you have specific questions bring'um forth.

Over all the 25 was one of the worst if not worst second worst designs BW ever came out with, the first of course being the 13! Heh heh just kidding just kidding, a little humor--- they are awesome boats!

Yes, and also check the Rendezvous & Reference sections.
In the Forum, as a general note, often the initial subject of the thread can be misleading, so look at all that even come close to an issue that may relate to a 25,or an interest you may have, such as bow pulpit, comparisons to 24 or 26 outrage, engine brackets, HP considerations, props, teak maintenance, hull maint, trailers, Frontier/Revenge/Temptation models, etc.

It will take a while, but it's there, as long as the 365 day limitation hasn't wiped it out.
