I am looking to buy a late model BW in the 20' to 22' range, and wanted some pros and cons between the Outrage and Dauntless. I live in South Florida and will be using the boat for fishing and general recreation on the Intracoastal and Ocean (weather permiting).

I chose the 22 Dauntless, it has a head, more storage. much more space, and the freeboard gives a more open spacious feeling. If you are in a 3-4' chop the Outrage is the better bet. But for daily excursions in reasonable weather some find the Outrage freeboard a bit high. If the ladies are aboard the head is a must. In the end, its a matter of opinion, so try both out.

The consensus among my friends is Dauntless=family/recreational boat, and Outrage=fishing, blue water.

repost of my reply from another thread

I have a 22 Dauntless.
Mine is mostly a fun freshwater boat except for one week long jaunt to the gulf coast. In the shop last year :(

In and around Perdido bay and in the gulf 3-5 miles out it was no biggie in light chop. Medium chop is real bumpy , but dry. One day, in 3-4' swells, you really had to play with the throttle to find a ride that doesn't beat you up. I am new to the near shore, off shore stuff as you can tell. This boat is a bit stern heavy and really benefits from trim tabs. When I get a bit more confidence in my motor, I am going to sink some more $$ on tabs for mine.

I think the Dauntless is "THE" SUV of boats. Fish, ski, freshwater, bass, crappie, mackeral, flyfish, saltwater, cruise, nearshore, offshore, it does it all. Not all perfectly, but if you pick your days, you can have a lot of fun. If you are looking for hard core fishing/offshore boat, you may be better served with something else.
