Hey guys!--We just bought a 2002 210 Outrage with a 200 Optimax on the transom. We also have the deluxe leaning post with livewell. I think it will be a great fishing boat! The only problem is that I can't find the raw water washdown hose? Do you guys have any idea?

Thanks a lot for your help! I wouyld really appreciate.

Good possibility that you don't have one.

My 1999 20' Outrage didn't and I had to add it. If you need any tips drop me a line.

Thanks TRAFFICLAWYER you've been very helpfull! I,m asking this because in the Deluxe Leaning post description, I'm suppose to have it. But maybe because my boat have the freshwater washdown option, it replace the raw water...

Thanks Red,

Look for a capped hose outlet in the motor well. To get water out of it, you have to turn the spray nozzle in the livewell clockwise to cut off water flow to the livewell first since they share a pump. BillS

Thanks a lot Bill! I'm glad now I know how it works! But does this work even the freshwater system?

*Even with the freshwater system

They are two completely different systems with their own pumps and different sources. The freshwater has a showerhead. Turn on the pump and press the button on the back of the showerhead to make water flow.

That's the problem. I only have one outlet with the shower head. Did they delete the raw water washdown since I have the fresh water one?

Unfortunately, I think back in 2002 the raw water washdown only came with the fishing package. I know the current Whaler website shows that the current (i.e. 2007) model year has it with the leaning post, but you can probably dig up the old website with the "2002" package specifications if you want. Go to, click on "My Whaler", then click on FAQs. Scroll down to like the second to last question "How can I view some of the previous boats and specifications that Boston Whaler offered?", and there is a link to a web archive. I think it is better to show you how I got there, then just put the link. I had trouble pulling up 2002 website, but the 2003 version apparently came up, and it only had the washdown with the fishing package. The good news is that adding the raw water washdown is probably not that hard, per other advice you have already gotten. Good luck, Steve

I have a 2002 210 Ventura that is built on the same hull as the 21 Outrage. I took some pictures of the plumbing that resides under the transom bulkhead. The fresh water hose & pass thru is located on the Venturas starboard side just aft of the transom door. You helm switches might be a little different than mine but the fresh/raw water pump switches will reside together. As you can see you fill your livewell or choose to close it off so all the water goes to the raw water washdown connection. The only other mod you might have is a freshwater hose inside your console storage compartment. Click on the link below to view the pictures. You can by a hose at any marine dealer to fit on the raw water wd connection. aspx?username=bluewaterpirate&album_id=193247

Sebastian, if you go to you will find an excelent drawing of the set up in your exact boat. Tom, I think your Ventura is built on an older 21' Outrage design. In any case, I can take pictures of the exact setup this weekend

Thanks a lot for your time, it's really appreciated even though the layout isn't exactly the same.

On the other hand, FNO, I would REALLY appreciate if you could post some pics of your setup, including the raw water system + the fishbox pump out system. I know I'm asking a lot, but It would be really really appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your hospitality,
