To fit 1984 Outrage console. These would be the black aluminium type.

On September 8th the new engine retrofit will begin. I'd really like to keep the appearance virginal... No blank covers for old instrument holes. Ditto the Ign. key hole and Morse control hole.

The new engine and related accessories are Yamaha 2254c.

If anyone has been down this road and would like to share your experiences, I'm listening.

Thanks.

I have done this on several of of restored Whaler boats. Purchase black 1/4" King Starboard. (West Marine or Boaters World). I use a dremel with a round over bit to make a nice edge. This works for switch panels and gauge panels.

Hope it helps
Archie

Stephen -

Check out:

The new panels are almost perfect match but the screw holes are very slightly different.

For help, you can contact a Boston Whaler dealer. Member SeaBob also can source them for you too.

I replaced my panels on my 1991 Outrage and sourced them from a dealer.

Now let's see what we're looking at.

There is a contributor on the ClassicMako site that custom makes electrical panels who may be willing to work with you. He can likely duplicate the look of a BW panel but with a very nicely done wiring job already installed.

No need to go to another site, did you see the custom Montauk 170 panel thread? SeaBob helped a lot.
