190 outrage console

Hello.. I'm new this site and would first like to thank everyone for their helpful recommendations and advise. I just returned back to Hawaii and plan to purchase a 190 outrage. My question is; has anyone ever moved their center console forward or aft. Reason being, if I went with the Outrage I'd need to be able to fit a big surface mounted fishbox onto the deck. Preferably I would like to remount the console 18" torward the aft, that way a 6 ft box could fit sideways infront of the console. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Have a safe and happy new year...

Hiloboy, I bought mine last year on Oahu and use a 6 foot fish bag to put fish in that I catch trolling offshore.
I just went outside and looked inside the center console. The deck is recessed and there is a fiberglass mold that fits around the inside lip of the console. The factory leaning post has a livebait tank/storage unit that is molded onto the deck. This cannot be moved so it would not make sense moving the console if you can't move the leaning post.

Given also the added weight of today's four stroke engines, and particularly a 150hp four stroke at 600lbs., even if you could move the console aft, I'd carefully consider the effect such a move would have on static trim, as well as on performance characteristics while underway.

Sal, I agree with you except the part where you say that 150 HP 4 strokes weigh 600 lbs. The Yamaha is 466 and the Honda is around 475 lbs.

No, I would not advise that at all. In my opinion the Outrage 190 is very slightly stern heavy as it is or better put it is light in the bow. I have a tendency to stern load because I use the boat for diving mostly and between tanks along the Roll Control mounts on either side and people who tend to congregate aft of the console when underway results in a boat that wants to porpose slightly and this is exaggerated by the bimini being up. Speaking of which, moving the console would effect the positioning of the bimini or T top and potential hard points for the T top. No, it is a very bad idea.

Oh, and I forgot, moving the console aft would leave no room for your feet because the livewell is fixed pretty darn solid to the center deck panel. The area between the livewell and the console is where you stand when underway. Your in for a world of hurt trying to move that console.

Thank you for you comments... I appreciate you informative feedback... I suppose the immediate solution would be as Perry stated and use a 6 ft long fish bag.

Sorry Perry. I shouldn't post based on my memory.

Sal A, you`re not that far off at 600 as the 150 verado 20`` is 510. add 20 pds for the 25`` shaft and 20 more for gear and engine oil and thats 550, maybe more . Thats one of the reasons I went with the yamaha 150. I`m still thinking about a kicker T8 but am concerned about the weight of it and the required bracket combined maybe 150 lbs on the stern . I don`t want the port scupper down any lower. As is I sometimes have water under the port seat when 2 200pd fishermen are standing there.

Hilob, maybe you need the 21 Outrage....easier said than done though with the price jump between the 19 and 21.

Not only is the price tag scary, but here in the islands gas pricy... The typical Kona waters are flat, so the 190 Outrage is perfect. It's just that the fish storage issue is where I got to get creative.
