What is the difference between the OR18 and OR19? Are the hull dimensions the same? Would a mooring cover for an OR19 fit an OR18?

There is a lengthy comparison between the two boats incorporated in the RENDEZVOUS section.
These are long narratives, but near the end of each there is a lengthy description of the Outrage 19 and Outrage 18.
As for the mooring cover, the consoles are a bit different so that may be a problem with fitting one on the other.

Thanks for the direction.

There is one bit of clarification I should add here. In 1990, the previous Classic 18 Outrage was renamed 19 Outrage, but otherwise is identical. In 1991, this same "still desert tan" hull got a different, taller console. In 1992, it became the white hulled 19 Outrage II, with a completely different interior hull mold, and third liner panel, resulting in an additional 650 lbs of weight.
It could no longer accept twin engines, also.
This is the model JimH has done the 19 Outrage review on in the Rendezvous section.
Then, in 1996, a new Meridian designed 19 Outrage was brought out. Never a big seller, and Sea Ray got rid of it to make room for their new 18 Outrage, also not a great seller and soon discontinued after only 2 years. It seems since the discontinuation of the Classic Dougherty designed 18/19 hull, this has not been a lucky number for BW's Outrages. Maybe there's a another new "180" in the works?
Why don't they just bring back the highly popular old one, in revised form? Nah, no way. It would cost too much to produce, would be a step backward, rides too rough and has no creature comforts. But it will support the 45,000# bulldozer, that none of the new hulls will.
