I'm interested in moving up for my Outrage 18 to a 22 Revenge.
Here are some specifics on my boat:
1988 Outrage 18, Yamaha F115 (installed new in 2007) 100hrs plus 4 years remaining on transferable factory warranty, 2001 Magic Tilt trailer, Mills canvas (forward shelter, flying top and windshield) new in 2007, RiteHite 8" setback engine bracket, stainless boarding ladder, Garmin GPS/Sounder, Standard Horizon VHF and antenna, canvas console cover, teak bow pulpit with roller and anchor lock, custom stainless siderails.
Boat is located in New London, CT.

very nice looking Outrage!
what's the thought on the RiteHite? does it help to reduce cavitation or is there another reason?
why a 115 vs say 135/150/175...how does it handle the normal stuff ie fishing with 2-4 people, skiing - can you pull 200lbs on skis/wakeboard, just cruising the ELIS waters, etc?
does the cooler fit under the RPS? seems like that kills lots of space in the back...
how's she on fuel?
what's your asking price??

I also would like to know what your selling price is, do not have a trade, just trying to find a great whaler.

Considering the state of the used boat market I was hoping to find someone interested in a trade but I suppose if I was to sell outright I'd be looking for $16,500.
The main reason I chose to add the Rite Hite bracket is that it makes the splashwell functional space. As far as performance is concerned there is a nice article here that explains it benefits.
Concerning the F115... I don't ski, I fish with a maximum of 3 people and cart friends and family back and forth to the beach, for my needs it has performed perfectly. BTW it was $12,000 installed all told with gauges, controls, rigging and new no-feedback steering.
A cooler does not fit under the RPS but extensions can be made out of wood so it can. Most prefer the RPS combo with these classic but its certainly a matter of personal taste and expected use.
On fuel she's what you'd expect from a modern mid-power 4 stroke outboard. 4-5 mpg cruise.
Understand that I am still quite enamored of this boat. Its setup perfectly and I could not ask for a better 18 footer, I'm just throwing this out there to see whats available.
Also forgot to add that the forward shelter also has a removable privacy curtain.

Thanks for the responses and the link...i like the privacy curtain for a makeshift head!
I think your price would quickly gather interested buyers if you're truly ready to sell.

I have a 22 Revenge, but I'm not in the market to trade right now. My listed is posted as CharlestonRevenge. My boat is perfect if you want a solid barebones boat to upfit to your liking.

Either the angle of the pictures is strange or you must be a giant because that boat looks tiny with you in it.
Beautiful boat though and I'd be interested if you do end up selling.

Lol... I'm no giant but at 6'1" and 260lbs I suppose I'm skewing the perspective a bit. Also, 18s are a lot smaller than 20s, if thats what you've been checking out recently you'd certainly see the Outrage 18 as a bit small. I'd say the relative difference is about the same as what the Outrage 18 is to the Montauk 17.

I'm in N.W. Ind. and have a v22 revenge 1980 with 1992 200 hp Yamaha
Might be interested? Fresh water boat since new has one coat of bottom paint
no major damage ever normal stress cracks and such for a boat this old but she is tight and runs out well.
