17' Outrage different from early to late 90's?

I've noticed several places Whalers from the early 90's advertised as 17' Outrage's...to my eye they look much more similiar to a late 80's 18' Outrage then to my 1997 17' Outrage.
Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

The oldest brochure I have is 1993 so I don't have specs on the 18s. The early 90s 17 Outrage comes in a little smaller than your 1997.
Swamped capacity 1850#
Max HP 120

The early Outrage 17 was an entirely different boat than the new ones, CHenry. Smirker(sponsoned)hull, much lighter and more maneuverable. They weighed 1020lb and were rated for 120hp, as Dick pointed out above, compared to your 1700lb boat rated for 150.
An excellent example of why I like the 70s and 80s whalers so much more than the new ones, Montauk excepted.
