I need to replace the 1993 Johnson 125 on my 1987 Outrage, hull number BWC7076CL687. I have been looking for a Johnson 175 but can not find one for a reasonable price. I have located a good 1997 Johnson 225 Ocean Runner. What are the pros and cons of mounting this motor on an 18 Outrage? I use the boat primarily for skiing in lakes but of course I do hit the Georgia and Florida coast for an occassional fishing trip. Thanks in advance for your input.

As I remember, the 19' Guardian, the commercial version of your hull. will accept up to 200hp.

Good luck,

John.

Think of a Montauk with a 150hp on it. Scare you?

An Outrage 18 with 225hp would be similarly overpowered.
