Author Topic:   Bottom Paint Before Sale?

Hello all! I am considering selling my 1992 22' Outrage with twin 90HP Yamahas in the near future as I have the itch for something a bit larger.

I keep the boat on a trailer but the previous owner had the boat bottom painted. I believe that someone who appreciates the classics will take this boat off my hands in due time so my question is, should I repaint or leave as is?

Thanks.

Leave it. It will that easier for the new owner to remove the old if they choose and if they want to put new on they get to pick the color.

On a side note how do your twin 90's work. I have an '82 22' Outrage withe twin 120's. I'll probably have to repower soon an I would like to have less weight on the transom and I've been thinking about 90's but wonder about performance. Can you plane with one?

The twin 90's setup does not make the boat lightning fast but it will plane on one engine if needed. Sometimes I wish it had a bit more power but oveall I'm happy with the setup.

If the bottom paint looks like crap, then I would re-paint. Trailer boats look much better with a fresh coat of paint as apposed to crappy paint. I painted mine to help with the sale, and wish that I had painted it when I first bought the boat. It really cleans up the look and gives the impression that the boat was well cared for.

TransAm, I'm traveling right now on business but I'll posts some pics early next week when I return. Thanks.
