At one time, my Outrage 22' was a Outrage Cuddy. Does anyone out there know someone with a cuddy I could re-install on my 22'?
I know this is a rare request.

Not quite sure it just "bolted up". Was part of the boat. You can make one from canvas....called a dodger.

Yes, it was fastened with a series of screws.

Nick- The reason someone removed your cuddy was the desire for increased room in the bow. Maybe for fishing. Maybe that space was dank, dirty and a place sproating mushrooms. Happens. Going with a substantial dodger/spray cover would be a fine way to handle the bow. Some dodgers are light and flimsy while I've seen some that are quite heavy duty. A heavy duty one should have stainless steel bows (3), heavy Sunbrella canvas, stainless fittings, plus a drape to cover the rear opening of it. A large clear vinyl window with a zip in/out feature is a nice touch. The great advantage of the dodger is price (around $800) by comparison to the glass work required in replacing/buying the cuddy. Also, if you enjoy speed the dodger is considerably lighter than what you contemplate. But, the best feature is that you can fold the dodger forward, having the bow open or keep it up sheltering what/whomever you wish. Dodgers are pretty neat on an Outrage. Good luck David

BW just screwed on a cabin? What about inside? I remember nasty plaid upholstery and shelves, etc.

Come on BS, that plaid is sweeet !!!!!
I guess, the cuddy isn't that desirable?

Given the lack of availability of replacement parts/accessories I have no idea where you'll find one but I wish you luck.
As for the rest of the replies so far, where is the enthusiasm normally displayed for the restoration of Classic's to their original beauty?
BS - Nasty plaid? (ouch) That one hurt.

The only reason it hurt is because it is like wool or camelhair:)
If you guys honestly love the plaid.....I can't wait to see your Edsel or astroturfed patios:)
