I have a 1992 19' Outrage and have had it for 3 years now. I see that to be a classic it should be pre 1990. This boat is a bit of a classic in that it has the classic hull but this particular year had a re-configured cockpit. Also worth noting is that it is really an outrage18 but for whatever reason they decided to call it a 19'.

Here is what I like about it as opposed to the previous configure. It is self bailing which was a marked improvement. It has the hinged CC which in my oppinion is both good and bad. It houses the batteries freeing up the inside transom area that has been transformed into seats and storage and gives a lot more fishing room than before. It also allows for easy access to the batteries, oil sump and electrical. All good.

The bad is that it prevents me from installing a T-top because in order for that to work well I would need to fasten the top to the CC and that would prevent access via the hinging console.

The config in the bow has been raised giving a better and more comfortable platform including storage.

It is also the first of the white gel coats as far as I can tell.

I think they only made this model for a year or two before changing everything.

Anywhoo, I just stumbled onto this great site and thought I'd say hi to all you fellow Whaler Brothers!! I will check back often and try to contribute as well.

It seems as though most of you are on the East Coast. I'm in So. California and looking forward to comparing notes with ya'all.

I would post a pic but the site says html and img code are not allowed??

I will try to link a pic just to see if it works:


PS - there is a lot more to tell but this gets me started at least!!

Welcome to the forum!

I have a 1992 Outrage 22' (Outre'-can be seen on page 8 of Cetacea and a couple other spots I don't recall) and while there are differences of opinion both about what years of production makes a Classic, and what the differential values of Classics and non-Classics are, I still consider mine a Classic, and I would think you should think of yours that way, too.

Dave- Looks like a clean and unique OR. Curious about the interior reconfigure items you mention. Now, ya'll post some close up pics as time permits. Welcome aboard.

Thanks David '86 22' OR

Hey, thanks David & Kingfish for the welcome! Much appreciated!!

Now to answer you David regarding some pics of the config of this cleaverly revamped '92 Outrage I do have a few pics but I wish they were better quality. That is something that I plan on working on. Got to get a place for myself in Cetacea right!! :-)

Well, here is the best I have for now:

Bow view less the cushion that fits over the bow lockers. Note the molded forward console seat that is an integrated part of the console itself. Below the storage well is a small bilge area that has never even seen a drop of water. It has an auto bilge pump that will probably never get a chance to do it's job. Got to love that.

Helm view with added mohogany console cap. I installed that so I could mount my electronics properly. The scroll up compartment is nice but the plastic housing was an eyesore and unfunctional. The added mohagany cap was a simple but nice addition and functional:

Cockpit stearn view shows how they have re-worked the motor well and incorporated some nice seating and storage compartments. I think this is possibly the best mod they did. The aft area in older models was always a problem area imo. They really cleaned it up and it's self bailing!

Bait tank view gives a little better look at the aft seating and config and the bait tank fits very nicely behind the helm seating. I can walk between the tank and the seats with no problem.

Well, those are the best pics I have at the moment. I am planning on cataloging the boat with better pics in the near future. I took these in a hurry one afternoon from where I store the boat so the lighting was difficult and the fact that it is wedged in between two big motorhomes didn't help any.

Thanks again for the warm welcome and your feedback and comments are always welcome!!

I love John Flooks `22 Outrage and it is a Classic of sorts, but my personnal cut-off for Classic statis is any Whaler made in Massachusetts, thats just my opinion. Jack.

Jim G's 19-Outrage-II is a clean one for sure! I really like the canvas work that can be fully enclosed with side curtains. Very nice touch! I could use something just like it on mine.

This link should take you to a pic of Jimg's boat:

"Jim's 19 Outrage-II is equipped with some very nice canvas, including a forward shelter that cuts down a lot of wind and creates a sleeping cabin in the bow. He also has a large bimini top, side curtains, and windshield filler, although we are running without the curtains or windshield in place."

Have the same boat, 1992 outrage 19 II. the only problem is with the hinged console, being on the east coast I endure some rough seas and the console is cracking in the front hinged area. I am currently beefing it up to correct but am very happy with the boat..
