I was fishing off Nauset beach today in my 87 18'outrage and a newer 21 foot in the '96, '97 vintage was running beside me. It looked as though he was getting thrown all over the place. I was thinking about upgrading to that style as I think they are a quite beautiful boat and I want to upgrade a bit. Does anyone have any input or info on this subject?

Probably he didn't have it trimmed right as my 96 Outrage 21 was a great riding boat. With trim tabs etc.. I have really taken some seas in mine. It is a very nice boat.

BTW, If your are interested in one mine is for sale.

I've got a 94 21 Outrage and it rides great compared to other 21s I've been in and owned. Extremely dry as well. When trimmed out right it is as smooth or smoother than any boat of the same length.

I believe 97 hulls are different than 96. The 95,96 hulls have a deeper V. The 97 on they went to a shallower V to add more interior space. Most folks think the 95-96 vintage hulls are a better ride~mw

96 and 97 hulls are the same. Ride is good for a 21, but it's still a 21. Beautiful boat, nice layout for fishing (I had the super leaning post).

When did they change to the flatter bow? I thought it was 97.~mw

Looks like the "Brunswick" designed Outrages went into production in '98. Sorry for the bad info.~mw
