I am re-conditioning and re-powering a 1990 Boston Whaler 20 outrage.
I like to know what is the maximum transom weight allowed as I wish to use 4-stroke engines.
Your recommendation will be appreciated.

Boston Whaler did not have a maximum weight specification for the 20' Outrage in 1990 but the boat has a maximum horse power capacity of 200 hp.

In 1990 a 200 hp motor weighed over 400 pounds and a pair of 90 hp motors would have weighed over 600 pounds so I would think you will be safe with any single outboard made.

If you are planning on putting twins on your boat then you may need to consider the weight of the motors.

My 20-Revenge (same hull as 20-Outrage) currently has about 600# on the transom.

At this loading the spash well drains are submerged.
