I'm looking at a used '79 Whaler 20' Outrage. The boat was sitting in a boat yard here in CT and I just happened to notice that it wasn't registered for the 2001 boating season. I hunted down the owners name and lo and behold he said that he might be interested in selling it. The motor is a Johnson 150HP, probably mid 80's and it has a 15hp kicker.
Thanks guys for your help.

PS. I blame Larry Sherman for my new interest in an older Whaler. <VBG>

According to some, the pre 1985 20' Outrages had some ride quality issues when equipped with OMC outboards. If I understand it correctly, the deadrise of the Vee may be flatter on the pre '85 hulls. You need to do some searching in the forum here because this topic has been discussed several times.
