Question for 210 Outrage owners

I just bought a brand new 2004 leftover 210 Outrage in January. Got a heck of a deal (under $36000). I was wondering what tow vehicles you all use. I have a 2002 Olds Bravada. I was also wondering what motor you have and what your top speed is? Thanks.

York, I was using a 95 Suburban with a 6.5 turbodiesel doing the work. It was a good combo. I just traded it for a 2003 F-250 diesel and haven't pulled the boat yet. I'm still stranded in NH on the job. Hope to get to home to FL next week. My 210 has the Yamamerc 225 on it and it is a very sweet combination. Top end is 47-49 with a T top. Depends on load and sea state otherwise. I have to wonder if the Bravada has the ponies to pull a 210 any distance. Short runs to the ramp might be all it's good for. Do you have the livewell in the leaning post? If so I need to tell you about the drains. Otherwise, it's a great boat. I'd like to bring it up North this summer if I have to continue my work up here.

Thanks for the reply. My boat doesnt have the livewell or leaning post. Comfort package is all I have. I agree with the Bravada, it had trouble pulling our 160 Dauntless last summer. Mine has the 200 Mercury on it.

Sounds like the 200 will be fine for your needs. If you don't have a T top, top speed should be around 50 mph with the right prop. I'm not sure what prop I have except that it is a merc Vengeance @ 21 pitch. Do you have trim tabs on your boat. Judging from the price, you didn't go for a lot of options, which is how I usually se them on the lots. I had the dealer swap out the 175 Opti on mine for the 225 four stroke, learned my lesson about Whaler power with a 90 on my 16 Dauntless.

Hey fno, what are you working on in Seabrook? Nuke plant? If you are around this summer, I'd be happy to take you out fishing. Well, take you out looking for fish anyways. :)

My 210 has a 200 Opti on the back and it is more then enough.

Newt, I'm working in Brentwood at a plastics plant. I may be out of here next week, but I'm sure I'll have to come back up for rework and any problems with the line that I put in. I would look forward to doing some fishing up here. My brother in NJ says the stripers are slamming baits right now, how about up here?

fno, give me a shout when you come back up this summer. I haven't tried yet myself, but the reports are that striper fishing is slow to non-existent in the Merrimack River, Plum Island area and Annisquam River as well as all points farther north. Maybe this warm weather will bring 'em in!

I stopped in at the bait shop in Hampton yesterday and the owner said that no one was using bait over the weekend and the beginning of this week. He thinks it will be another couple weeks before the fish are in. It sure was beautiful along the coast yesterday. I wish I had brought the boat down.

FNO- I will be up June 11-18 and on the Whaler all day everyday if you are still in NH. I know some great spots around York to catch some nice stripers.
