Today I looked at a 21 outrage/1997 with a 225 Johnson oceanrunner,Hyd.steering,Factory T-top.The boat looks like it spent alot of time in the sun.All of the gel coat looked chalky.Not that sitting down is important in a boat,but other than the swivel seats at the helm,a person would be liminted where they could Sit.The boat was a consignment,and the dealer did not seem to interested in dealing the boat.
The 21 had a VHF,Depth finder,GPS. all apelco. There was Two large fish boxes in the floor.
I also looked at all the new Whalers they had.22 Dauntless,18 Outrage,21 outrage,23 Outrage,17 Montauk,All of them were powered By Yamaha's.
I bought a t-shirt with a 17 Outrage on it and then stepped in and spoke with the sales people.
No I did not buy a new Whaler because my wife would have *^%#@! me.
Someday.
See Ya,Ed Stone

Ed,

The 21' Outrage was sadly one of the last decent hulls IMO to come out of the Edgewater plant. This is a terrific boat with an 8' beam. A very large 21 footer. Very popular with twin 150's, but a single 225 would top 50mph. Thankfully, it has the non-euro transom. Seating was not a strong suite, (after all this is a fishing machine!) but a folding full-width stern seat was available. I have the near identical hull in a 21' Walkaround, great hull in almost all sea conditions.

Backlash, although I am not a huge Accutrack hull fan, I totally agree with you when it comes to that awfull euro-styling that Boston Whalers have now. They really have become followers instead of leaders like they once were. They are really kissing the perverbial behinds of the hole family now and going for the do it all, apease the wife and kids thing. It is so sad to see this happening to a once awsome fishing machine. Regards-JACK GRANER.
