Author Topic:   OUTRAGE 22 Deck

I have a 1979 Outrage 22 with two holes on the deck located under the console. [One of the two holes] is forward to the port side with nothing coming through, just access to the port rigging channel, and the other is on the starboard side with all of the rigging coming through it.

Does anybody have some sort of gasket or means to prevent water from flowing down? I'm tired of pumping water out of my bilge and am worried about further delamination. With enough water, it actually is up and over the fuel tank. Any thoughts? I suppose [one] thing to do is add a block of wood across the front of the console to block the water from coming down the middle in the first place. However, I'd much prefer a better solution that directly covers up the holes. I seem to remember a thread somewhere that added a large rubber gasket of some sort.

If you look at the third photo up from very bottom, you'll see through the tangled mess and standing alone to port, there are a couple pieces that are in place doing what I'm suggesting.

Only problem is that I am not removing the console to do this, so I need a different solution

The access holes in the deck of a Boston Whaler boat which are provided for passing rigging cables and harnesses from the helm to the transom area are sometimes protected against the flow of water on the deck into the holes by plastic molded dams or barriers that surround the perimeter to a height of about 2-inches. These barriers prevent water flowing on the deck from draining right into the rigging tunnels.

Do you mean the image at

If so, then you appear to have the sort of barrier or dam devices I was trying to describe above.

Yes, that's what I'm referring to. Any thoughts on installing such a dam with the console in place?

With the rigging coming through, I would need a clam shell style to wrap around everything, but I'm not sure I would actually be able to secure it to the deck.

4200 Fast Cure coupled with some weight to hold it down while it cures would secure it just fine if you were to split it so that you could get it around the rigging.

Sound like a good idea. Any idea on where to get one of these dams?
