I currently have the 17 O/R for sale (E-Bay) and it will be going away soon (much interest / over 1000 hits to the ad!!)). The replacement will be a 2000 O/R 18 with a 150. While the 17 is a great boat (make that exellent boat) I'm looking forward to more of a good thing with the 18'. I have all the specs on the 18' and know on paper the differences. Can anyone provide a first hand account of the 2 vs. the other.

You will notice the big feeling in the 18. The 18 outrage has a 90 gallon tank. Takes on a bigger motor, width of the boat is wider and also much heavier.

The 18' outrage bow is very large compared to other 18's out there. Also the gunnels are higher too. You will get 2 fishbox's compared to one.

I own a 2000 outrage with a 135 opti. I use it in Michigan, both on lake Michigan to fish for Salmon and Lake trout. I have two Scooty down riggers on it. I also use it to water ski on inland lakes. Further I take family out in it just for cruising. the boat is very stable and dry, it does everything that I ask of it. it also can handle taking 6 people out on the big lake and encounter rough conditions without any problems. 4 is the best # to take fishing but it will handle 6. I also take 8 people out just to cruise the river again because of the high gunnels everyone has room. the boat feels much bigger than a normal 18ft boat. I think it is a great, great boat!
