Author Topic:   Outrage 22 WD - Stern Storage Bin

I am redoing a 1989 Outrage 22 WD. There are three storage compartments on closed stern, each with teak hatches.

Is there a drop-in storage bin that goes in the center (large) compartment? Does anybody either know where I can find something for this purpose or have an old one they are interested in selling?

Thanks for your advice.

Yes, there are fiberglass bins that drop into the "bench" area which are covered with wood lift off covers. I have the original wood covers from my Outrage 21 that I could part with as I have fabricated new ones. I should tell you that they are not in great shape and would need some attention. I have no info on the availability of the bins--good luck.

I have a similar boat. I have the drop-in bin for the center hatch. I am not interested in selling it, but I will say that we often remove it when we want to really store a lot of stuff in the area under the hatch. You can pack more gear into the area under the stern deck when the insert is not in place. Also, that hatch leaks water. When the insert is in place, water collects in the bottom of the insert. In a hard rain, you can have several inches of water in the bottom of the insert.

Thanks for the replies, guys. The wood hatches I have are in good (new) condition. Any ideas on where to purchase something similar to the original drop in bin (which I will likely drill one or two drain holes in to alleviate the water collection problem)?

The suggestion to add a drain or two drains to the bottom of the laminated insert that goes into the center hatch on Whaler Drive boats is really a very good idea. I think a drain with a length of flexible hose that allowed water captured by the insert to flow onto the aft deck would be an improvement.

Not every boat with a Whaler Drive will have the laminated drop-in live-well in the center hatch of the aft deck. The aft deck center hatch live well was an option.

Thanks for the replies. I've contacted Mills Canvas and intend to make a rectangular bin made out of blue canvas on four sides with a mesh bottom that will snap onto the vertical portions of the lip on the inside edge of the hatch(so as not to interfere with the wood hatch).

I found this alternative elsewhere on this site and it seems like a very good idea and location for storing life jackets, lines, etc.

I have the fiberglass insert that goes into the center console in a closed stern. I have no plans to sell this piece however from a functional stand point the canvas enclosure with a mess bottom sounds like a good idea. I currently store extra lines in the center rear compartment and allowing them to adequately dry out can be a problem. Good luck, bring that boat to Door County this summer so all the on line members can take a look.

Thanks - I'm currently redoing the entire boat and look forward to posting pics when I'm done. Located on Lake Geneva, WI and we are hoping to make it up to Door County at some point!

Whalersailor-

I have a 1991 22' Outrage WD. I replaced the fiberglass bin in the center stern hatch with a drop-down navy blue canvas bag with a mesh bottom, very similar to what you have described for your project. It opens up a lot of available storage space for fenders, tackle bags and misc. water proof gear. It is the best modification I've made to my boat
