Yes, your boat is the lighter of the two variants and is commonly referred to as a 1991 Outrage 17 I. They were made from 1991 to 1995.

I have a 1991 as well!

Congrats!

Forgot to mention it is considered a classic not a post-classic design.

aloha ,
Thanks for that info .I bought it from a diver who took out the seating , moved the console forward and had no bimini .Through craigslist I got a deal on a bimini and scored a nice bench seat with a baitwell which is how I like to fish. It has a 90hp honda 4 stroke. how is yours set up ? greg

I have a Honda 90 on a Montauk. I bought the whole rig 18 months ago and have had zero problems with the Honda. It looks from your profile like you may be in Hawaii and will be running year round, so you won't have the potential problems others have reported with the carb jets plugging up with prolonged laying up.

If you do lay up for months at a time you'll want to follow the procedures in the manual.

good luck. if you do live in Hawaii and will put thousands of hours on your motor, you bought the right one.

yes, i do live in hawaii and will use the boat year round .
i hope that boat will be the right one enough to bring my family on day trips and still hook some big ones with the boys :) i still have to sell my 13' whaler which is a great surf boat and i've hooked alot of fish on it .i've had the outrage for a month and half and only took it out 4x which for me is not much.so i really don't know the boat yet.

My boat (photos http://picasaweb.google.com/CascoBayOutrage/1991Outrage17I )
has a 2003 Yamaha 115 4 stroke. It is a lot of power and I top out at 43 +/- mph. Conditions usually keep me down to 35 mph.

If you do a search, you can see that almost every owner really likes the boat alot.

I moved up from a classic Montauk.

Welcome to the small (elite?) club! Feel free to post/email any questions you have.

Thanks. I like your boat, nice and clean. I do have a few questions because I'm setting up my boat . Where are your batteries & switch if you use 2? Is your seat original stock and is the pad and seat in the front of your console original ? where can I get some seat cushions ?

The single battery is in the starboard rear seat compartment. Think this is the factory position.

The battery switch is in the same location mounted on the inside wall. I would get a smaller switch since the room is tight. See new photo posted http://picasaweb.google.com/CascoBayOutrage/1991Outrage17I/ photo#5083454368030908610

The seat is referred to as a Reversible Pilot Seat (RPS) and is identical to those on Montauks and other Outrages. Older models had teak backs but they changed to fiberglass around 1990 ish? Once in a while someone offers an RPS for sale in the marketplace. Patience is key. I have heard that Twin Cities offers a new one but it is very expensive (maybe $1,000 -$1,200)

The seat back cushions are original and can be obtained in matched color/pattern from Halls Nautical. see http://continuouswave.com/whaler/reference/OEM.html#upholstery
While you might think they are expensive, the quality is as good as whaler and they will last a really long time. I replaced several on my Montauk and they matched exactly. I highly recommend them.

The cooler is a standard marine cooler. Don't remember the size off the top of my head.

Hope this helps.

Got any pictures you can share?

Hello guys,

I owned a 17' Montauk a long time ago. Time to get another used whaler. I found a 1994 Outrage 17, but am not able to find out much about this model.

Any ideas about how it compares to the mid-1980's Montauk, with respect to beam, fuel capacity, stability, self-bailing? I hope to keep it on a mooring for a week or so at a time in the pacific northwest.

It's got an almost new (4 hours total) Honda 90 on it. The wealthy man that owns it wants to reduce his boat inventory. It's been in storage for 6 years in a heated hanger. The hull is almost perfect ( a few small hull marks). Is a 90 sufficient for general fishing use, crabbing, etc. I expect I'll take take the kids tubing on the lake once in a while. Are speeds in the mid-30's possible?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Jim

Do a search (below the topic button) on Outrage 17 Montauk.

I found this as a start http://continuouswave.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/006713.html

Paint? Wooh.... Let's see some photos before you start something this big. You would be amazed what you can do with buffing, gel coat restoring.

Guys,
Thank you for the advice and referral to other places on the website to learn more about comparing the Montauk to the 1994 Outrage 17. It was extremely helpful, and I ended up buying the Outrage. I've used it a couple of times so far, and it's a great boat. Thanks again.
Jim
