Would like to install some type of rail across stern of Outrge 19 to close it up. Would like for it to have another function also ie. fold down seat tackle station or something. Any ideas?
Thank you, cc

I'll send you some pictures of a beautiful Revenge that I shot at our gas dock.
He had a custom weleded SS rail around the stern with SS rod holders welded on. Beautiful set up.

Only down side to the boat is that I didn't buy it.

Thank you for the pictures, Some very nice examples for a full transom. The 19 as you know has an open transom, I want to find or design a rail that crosses the transom, and could be functional as well.
Thanks in advance, cc

The Revenge pics I sent you was a Whaler drive but with a little creative design work it wouldn't be a problem to adapt it to your boat.

Doing a search on stern rails, I found a comment I believe by IHG, regarding a BW stern rail option for the 22 Outrage/Revenge. Is this the one I've seen for the full transom model or for a cut transom?
Thanks in advance, cc

Russ Hubbard has a stainless steel rail across the stern of his Revenge 22. There's a nice picture of it in Cetecea at reference 64-19, as well as 64-1 and a mention of the rail's purpose in the followup comments for the Cetecea page.

Thank you Taylor,that rail is what I need. I had a more complicated design in mind. Simple is better. Nice boat Russ. Thanks Tom for the follow up comment in cetecea. cc

I made mine out of 3/4" 316 SS tubing. I bolted 1/4" x 1" aluminum across and mounted 8 rod holders. Works nice and is a back for an aftermarket couch. Any weld/machine shop should be able to make you one. Go here and you may be able to see. http://briefcase.yahoo.com/reelescape1

Could I take a crossbar like Russes and atach a fold down seat, that legs would retract when lifted to crossbar? Would be great. cc

Thank you!! I liked the twins, but not enough ponies compared to the Yam, its a fine engine!! Unfortunately for some folks, the last year was 2002. I tried to buy the Whaler couch, local dealers wanted $1700!! I went with a Wise 60" from Boaters World (I think) for about $400. I mounted nylon "feet" on it and remove it when the girls aren't riding. Its nice, eat you wheaties to lift it though!! I would buy another one in a minute!! Its a LOT more comfortable than the original couch we had in the 18'! Good luck!!

Last time, promise will not ask again. Is there a bar/grabrail that can be purchased for an Outrage 19? Also some type of fold down bench seat,that will retract under bar?
If I do not find one here it probably does not exist.
Thank You, cc

I assume you are talking about a Classic 19 Outrage, 1990-91. If so, to the best of my knowledge, Whaler never offered a stern rail for that generation of boat, 1982-1991. They DID offer one for the 20 & 22 Outrage, and the original 21 Outrage had this option also. They would have been made by CMI.

Check Cetacea for a photo of Tom Byrum's 18 Outrage in CA, which had a custom stern rail installed.
