Just this year traded up from an '88 Montauk to a '93 19' Outrage II, and am in love! I'd spent some time with an older Outrage 18 and wasn't too excited about the 19 until I took ride. This thing feels more like a 25 with the extra weight helping out a lot in my home waters of the southern Chesapeake where 3-4' chop is more the norm than the exception. Power is original from the dealer, '93 Ocean Runner 150.

I bought mine from the original owner, the retired CEO of the Newport News Shipyard, whose other boat is a 65' Bertram. The boat spent most of its life on a covered lift and I'd admired it --- just around the point from our summer place at the mouth of the York River and the Chesapeake --- since it was new. When I got wind that it might be for sale at the end of last summer, I jumped fast. It didn't come with a trailer, so I added an Easy Loader dual axle unit with a neat fresh water washdown feature --- basically a garden hose attachment that channels to the brakes --- since all my launches are salt.

A couple of things that I am thinking about adding are (1) outriggers --- I boat to fish, and (2) switching out the helm seats for a leaning post. I checked with the dealer who sold my boat new for a price for the unit that was an option in the 1993 catalog and he said he could come up with one for --- get this --- $1800! Right now I'm considering a Todd unit (about $500) and replacing the factory posts with adjustable ones, if I can find them with operating ranges short enough to work on top of the live well that the OR19 uses as a base. Also, I've got the gps bug and am about to order a Garmin 176C.

This will be my first real summer with the OR19 and I just can't wait. Over 10 years I'd become mindlessly confident with the old Montauk --- even filled her up a few times from over the bow in heavy seas --- but with just a few hours under my belt in the 19, I'm beginning to understand what a dope I'd been!
This is a lot more boat.

Capt. Corn -

I have a 1992 Outrage19 II that I bought in 1999. I was in the process of buying a used 15' SS from the local Whaler dealer in Newport Beach and the sales guy who is an old time aquaintance tells me about the 19' that is on consignment. I took one look at her and submitted a back up offer and I guess it was meant to be because the original buyer ended up backing out of the deal and I got her. She has the original 150 horse Yamaha that runs like a top and is so quite it's unbelievable. I love it. I also had to buy a new galvanized dual axle Pacific trailer with brake flush that I am very happy with.

The boat is exceptionally clean for a boat that is 10 years old. It has always been kept under custom full two piece canvas. It came with a custom navy blue bimini that I leave off the boat most of the time due to fishing requirements.

The only thing about the boat that I wasn't completely thrilled to death with was the plastic housing on the cc that covers the scroll up glove/radio box. I made a custom mahogany lid that worked out primo for mounting compass, gps antenna and electronics and it looks a whole lot better.

I have since installed a garmin 235 gps/sounder combo that works great. A 22 gallon kodiac bait tank and a new heavy duty vhf antenna and replaced both batteries.

Now I'm ready to fish!!

Here is a small WSB that my buddy caught while fishing with me off of Laguna Beach last summer:

Here are some happy young anglers with a lit up Bonito. These are another buddies kids and now that I've taken them fishing that's all they talk about whenever I see them. What a great experience taking kids fishing for the fist time!

The sea surface and fishing is just starting to heat up out here on the west coast and I'm ready!!

"Moment of Fame" is a free image hosting site that I use. It is the easiest and best image host out there. All you have to do is select the catagory that you would like to upload your image to and click "Add a Picture". It will prompt you through the rest. If you have any trouble with it email me and I will give you a more detail description of how to do it but I doubt that will be necessary once you give it a try.

Now to answer your other question.. a WSB is a "White Seabass". That in itself is kind of funny because it is actually a member of the croaker family and not a bass at all.

They can grow quite large upwards of 70-80 lbs. and some have been known to grow even bigger.

An average one is about 20-30 and a really good one is 40-50 lbs. with some in the 60 lb. range being caught each season. They are a very sought after species out here and are usually caught in the springtime. They are one of the best eating fish in the sea. Very light, mild flesh.

Here is a larger unit a freind of mine (Dara) caught this past Saturday at Catalina Island.

Here is and even bigger one that was caught on the same trip by her boyfriends son Zane:

For all you guys with women that like to fish.. have your girls visit Dara's site at:

I would like to point out that your boat is not the same boat as the Outrage II that rcross and Outrage 19 have. This is in spite of the similarity of the names of the models.

Your boat is essentially the same as a Classic Outrage 18, it's even Desert Tan. Only the console is slightly different. It is not even the same console as Outrage 19's boat.

While all these boats are wonderful, I don't think one could correctly classify your's a "Post Classic" It's not, it's a Classic. Even the Outrage II is in a gray area as the outer hull was designed by Bob Dougherty.

Do you know your hull ID #?

That might show that it was built in late '89.

Congrats on having a "True" Classic!

I have a '94 19' outrage with a '95 jojnson ocean runner. I'm going to sell it because I've recently moved. I'm not sure how to price the boat fairly. Does any one have any suggestions? She was used in Ct. 3 summer months(weekends only)a year and is in excellent condition. I'd appreciate any feedback.thanks in advance!

Mjbonham....I bought my 1993 Outrage 19 at the end of last summer for $14,500, but without a trailer. The trailer was just a touch over $2000. As above, it's in almost new shape and I think I got a great deal. I'd have paid a few thousand more. Hope this helps.
