Author Topic:   cutting board / rod holders 21' outrage

I am wondering what this option is actually called... the cutting board/rod holders shown in the pic. Does anyone have one? Are they any good? What do they cost and where can I get one?

That is known as either the "fishing station" or "prep station" and is available from your Boston Whaler dealer. It was an option on numerous models from the mid-90's to the present. I need to get one for my new (to me) 1999 Outrage 18...let me know if you find out a price.

what dealer did you order from? my dealer quoted me the ski pylon attachment at $127 + shipping and tax. I already have the bait prep... i can't image it costing less than the ski pylon option. There's way more hardware with the prep. Can you get me your dealers info. Thanks...

The part number is correct #1068485
The price is not correct... If you can buy it for the price of $111.50, I will take 10 of them...

I have the drawing from Whaler that states FISHING STATION.

Think about... Two (2) Rod Holders cost almost that much... And we are talking Whaler parts here...

I shopped around at several dealers when I finally got the best price of $325.00. Some dealers wanted $425.00.

Let us know if anyone finds a better price...

It didn't even really register on the price posted above, but you are right, Joe...a couple of Lee's rodholders are $150 by themselves...then the fiberglass and the mounting hardware...not to mention the Whaler pricing factor. I guess I'd better shop around.

I think Nasnas may have been quoted the price for the ski pylon. When I called there was some confusion on part numbers when it came to accessories for the rear transom bracket. Browings has only been a whaler dealer for a year and he mentioned they were still getting used to the parts ordering system.

If you get the correct part and they only charge you $112 take it and run.

Here is what the FISH STATION consist of..

1. 1/8" thick x 18" x 8" Stainless Steel Sheet (bottom plate)
2. 1" thick x 24" x 12" Whalerboard/Starboard (top surface & contoured)
3. 5" long by 1" O.D. tubing welded to the bottom plate
4. 1 Stainless Steel Quick Release Pin
5. 2 Rod Holders (I believe made by Perko)

The Rod Holders are engraved "Boston Whaler". These can't be cheap.
The Stainless Steel Quick release pin has got to cost $20 from Whaler.
The Stainless plate etc., is not cheap either... I think you know the rest of the story.....

I have in my possesion a Teak Cockpit Table that mounts in the same receptacle as the Fish Station and the Ski Pylon. This Cockpit Table was also made in the white Whalerboard/Starboard. It is roughly the same dimensions as the Fish Station but folds out to give you twice the space. The dimensions I gave above are from the Cockpit Table but should be close to the Fish Station as I sold the Fish Station with my prior 1997 Outrage 17.

If anyone would like a photo of the drawing I have from Boston Whaler for the FISH STATION, please let me know. Unfortunately, they do not give the dimensions, just a breakdown of the parts with no part numbers.

I think the prep station is a waste of space. It sticks out in to the cockpit and on my boat takes up too much space. Plus they all seem to be curved in the wrong direction. Instead of curving around the motor it curves away from the motor. One of my future projects is to have a stainless rail made that just trims out the splash well and gets rid of the Ski pylon and prep station deal. I'll then bolt a couple of Perko chrome on brass rod holders on the new rail and call it a day. Should open up the deck nicely in the back. Realistically my only beef with my boat (1996 19/20 Outrage) is that there isn't much deck space between the prep station, livewell/leaning post, and the 72Qt Igloo, plus the coaming pads take up more realestate than I'd like.

phatwhaler out.

I have one on my 2000 18 Outrage (came with the boat)and I love it. I also have the ski pylon (paid abt $120) which I use on family outings.

The neat thing about the prep station is that it performs that function well without having to get one of those bait prep stations to hang out of one of your rod holders on your gunwales.

I cut bait (bunker or herring) all day off that table with two rods in free spool waiting for a run off. I keep a knife and pliers in the holders. I find I have less to reach for when I fish like this (rather than having rods in the port or starboard rod holders).

I am not a small guy nor a big guy (6 ft., 190lbs) and I have not had a problem moving back and forth between the table and the leaning post with a 94 Qt cooler lashed underneath.

A third option was also offered, that being a standard table that unfolded, kind of like a cocktail table. I have not seen one nor do I know the price.

The only complaint I have is that since I keep my boat in a marina I am concerned about the table being stolen, so I take it off the boat at the end of the day. Some type of locking mechanism would probably resolve that problem.

I have the bait station on my 1997 outrage. I felt it stuck too far out into the walk way as well. I looked on the under side and found that the plate that the table was attached to was offset to throw the table more into the splashwell. I found that whoever assembled the bait station for my boat had the offset throwing the table further out into the walkway. I will not say it is totally over the splashwell now, but it moved it back to a point were I hardly notice it being there. you guys should look at yours just to make sure they are right.
