Just purchased first BW. I do not know much about them except they have the best reputation of any boat I have considered.
The boat is powered by 2 1999 Johnsons with 50 hrs. I had the carbs cleaned, engines tuned, lower unit lubed. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Welcome, great boat, just bought a 1989 myself, and if you stick around here you will be improving it forever!

What year and HP are motors? And is it a full transom model?

Pete

The boat is not full transom, it has 2 150 johnsons that were replaced 1999. The owner was transfered to Canada and the boat sat up for 2 yrs. Most of the original teak is in place but I can tell where some was removed. I have been a shallow water fisherman for all my life but was in a bad accident 2 yrs ago and wife wont let me have shallow water boats so I convinced her Whalers are the way to go.
i have been told the 25 will float in less than 18 inches?

What kind of price did you pay for your 89 25 Outrage.?

Paid $30,000
Prev owner had boat repowered and was transfered out of the country a week after. Boat sat in a barn for 2 yrs. motors have 25 hrs. The hull is in great shape, a little oxidation, lots of teak that my wife swears she will make look new. GPS and thru hull Sitex fish finder included. Also extra large T top that needed some welds and bracing. All the 25s in the texas area that I looked at were $28,000 to $45,000. All had 400+ hrs on engines. Most owners would not budge on price and all sold within a week of inquiry.
