DOS ANY ONE FEEL THE WAY I DO ABOUT MY 290 OUTRAGE? I COMPLETELY LOVE THIS BOAT. THIS HAS BEEN THE ONE BOAT THAT IVE HAD NO DESYER TO TRADE UP OR DOWN FROM. I DIDNT THANK A BOAT EXSISTED THAT I WOULD FEEL THAT WAY ABOUT. THEIRS ALWAYS 3 OR 4 THINGS THAT YOU SEE ON A NOTHER BOAT THAT YOU WISH YOU HAD. THAT HAS NOT BEEN THE CASE WITH THIS 290 THE YAMAHA 4 STROKES HELP.

ROLLOFF,

Easy on the CAPS man. Nice to hear you have achieved boating Nirvanna :-) It is a sweet rig.

Care to share any performance numbers?
WOT?
Cruise Speeds vs. RPM vs. Fuel economy?

Any qualititative description of how she handles?

How many hours thus far, and how long have you had her?

Seems like not many people on this site have that boat. Your insight on that model interests me and may interest others.

Regards,

TG_190

The 28/29 Outrage looks like the new version of my 1992 BW 27 Offshore.

What do you guys think?

yes, that was the replacement of the offshore.
Too bad BW decided to stop production of both the offshore and the 28/290 outrage.

I have not had the opportunity to experience the 28/29 first hand. It seems a little less commercial/goverment looking than the Offshore 27.
I wonder if it is as much a tank as the Offshore 27 is?
I do like some of the changes such as a better equipped cabin with separate head and fridge.
