Not sure of the condition, but the '79 Outrage is traditionally a great boat.
As a reference, a friend just sold his '79 21 Outrage with a decent Merc 150 for $13K.

gvisko, that sounds very interesting. Did you seatrial it? If its in overall good shape, that might be a good investment. Do a couple of turnovers like that and you can buy a Grady.

gvUsCo, is that boat still for sale? I need something cheap to run out to my Grady on the mooring.

I sold my 1977 19' Outrage w/1986 150 Merc and trailer for $11,000 here in CA last Nov,2001.
My boat was very clean, but missing most of the original wood. I still have some pics if you would like to see and compare. This forum has a great section on buying used whalers. I myself have purchased 4 used classics and find that most of the info posted on this forum is correct.
Get some more details on the condition of the boat and see if you can haul it out and inspect for water damage. (biggest problem to fix)
Ask around on this site, these guys and gals have alot of experience and knowledge to pass on.
Best of luck.
