[An acquaintance] has for sale a 1974 Revenge-21 with twin 1992 85-HP Yamaha's. [I] haven't ridden in it yet but will very soon. I currently own a 1996 17-Outrage (it is for sale), and I love the way it handles a chop. How will the Revenge handle 2 to 3-foot [chop] compared to the Outrage?

Also, the in-floor gas tank is shot and would need to be replaced. I would consider it a "project boat" with the motors in fair condition. If the only work to be done on it is cosmetic (appears that way but will find out after the trial), any guestimates on what to offer? I am looking for a slightly larger boat with twins to do near offshore fishing.

By the way, the current gas setup on the boat is this. One external 25 gallon tank under each gunwale for each motor (50 total). What type of fuel efficiency could I expect gph or mpg with the twins? Many thanks for any help!

3-4gph per engine at cruise. Top speed in the low-mid 40's. Replace the tank, you'll need the extra 40 gallons.

Boat should handle better than the 17 because of length. 17 has a much deeper v but 4' is 4'.

Lumiza, If you decide to get rid of your external tanks, let me know. I am looking for those very tanks for my 72 Outrage. Thanks. Kurt G

The relatively low deadrise of the c.1974 21-REVENGE hulls is known more for its efficient planing than for its ability to knife through 3-footers.
