I'm planning on replacing the old Evin 200 on my 1978 OR V-20. Does anyone know what the wt and the prop hp was on the Evin 200 was. also, how fast should this boat have gone with that motor? (the motor does not run)

Prop horsepower in my best guess would be that of a 170hp to 180hp. I think that is should be a 2.6 crossflow which should weigh about 405lbs. Just my guess.

In the REFERENCE section you will find a large compilation of speed predictions for almost every classic Whaler hull.

Oops! But nothing for the classic 21-foot hull!

Yikes, more research required!

Your boat should have gone about 52 mph with that motor when it was new. The motor weighs about 410 lbs.

Your V-20 is rated for 180 hp so the biggest single that could be put on it was a 175. Whaler lists the top speed for a V-20 with a 175 on it at 49 mph. They also list the Outrage 21 with a 175 on it as being able to go 49 mph too.

With 200 hp on it the Outrage 21 would go 52 mph so it seems logical to expect the V-20 to go 52 mph with the larger motor. At the time these speeds were listed by Whaler (1979) all motors on the market were powerhead rated as your Evinrude 200 is (was).

A nice and lighter 175 would be a great engine for that. If speed is not that much of a priority the 140 Suzuki 4 stroke should fetch you low 40's.

Jim, I didn't find any info on the "V" 20, just says outrage.
The weight of his boat is 1,600 lbs as mine is.
I'v weighed my rig at a truck scale, boat, 2 - 200 hp Evinrude Ficht AT 504 LBS, 1 - 15 HP 1980 Johnson kicker, twin group 29 batteries at 60 lbs each, 20 gallons of fuel & the trailer,...the whole thing was 3,800 lbs & the trailer is 900 lbs by itself, so his rig [ without trailer ] should only come in around 2,500 to 2,700 lbs at most.
They show these low speeds for their outrages around 42 mph.
That info must be from babalon days when the 200 hp rating was really only about 170 hp.
My "V" 20 breaks 60 mph with 222 hp pushing her, up on the 3rd holes with a s/s Stiletto 14.25 x 21 prop at 6,500 rpms trimmed out to absolute max.
As said before, these speeds were per speedo, gps, sonar & police radar guns on 3 different occasions on 1 ft chop.

Jim, I found the "V" 20 page for weight & length, but it says 1,500 lbs with a ? behind it & the length to be 20'3" which is wrong.
My 79 "V" 20 is only 19'10" at 1,600 dry lbs.
Didn't give any speeds.

Thats a typo,.......6,500 rpms,.....should read 6,050 rpms.

Your may actually weigh 1600 pounds but the specified weight according to Whaler for a 1979 V-20 is 1500 pounds.

In 1981, the specified weight was increased to 1650 pounds for no apparent reason. There is no difference between a 1980 Outrage 20 and a 1981 Outrage 20 (or a 1979 Outrage V-20 for that matter)

It was never listed as weighing 1600 pounds.

I have the original paper work on the boat, & it says 1,600 lbs from Boston Whaler ????
If I can find it, [ my wife likes to put important papers in real safe places, so safe I can't find most of them ].
If I can find them, i'll fax em to you.

If you can dredge it up, I'd love to see the paperwork on your boat. My FAX is 206-783-4895
