Author Topic:   1977 19' Outrage drain hole

The question I have is regarding the drain hole in the forward starboard cockpit area of my 19' outrage. I know it is a drain hole and that it obviously drains toward the stern. When I took a wire and tried to locate the terminating point, it appeared to go into the wiring channel under the center consul. Does anybody know if this is the correct location? Is there a diagram available? Any help is appreciated.

That is correct. The forward drain empties into the tunnel that starts under the center consol and ends at the bilge. This tunnel hold the wires. Take a garden hose or pressue washer and stick it in the front drain and that should clear out any gunk. The drain is not large. I own a 1775 19'4" Outrage and that worked for me.

I have the same 19' outrage, with the same clogged stbd drain. What I did was the old coat hanger trick, didn't work, but what did work was to fill it up with water, and create suction like a plumger. Worked after a short while. Good luck

Thank you!!!!!! It is still clogged from what I believe to be a run away sinker. Oh well, now the fun begins.......
Thanks again.
