Q1: what is the maximum engine power rating on a 1998 OUTRAGE 20?

From first-hand experience, describe the handling of a 1998 OUTRAGE 20.

BACKSTORY
A friend may buy 1998 20 Outrage that is in nice shape. It has a 2020 Mercury 225.

My only first-hand experience to share with you about the c.1998 OUTRAGE 20 is the great pleasure they bring to me to see them; the lines on an c.1998 OUTRAGE 20 are beautiful. The console design is excellent.

I prefer this VanLanker designed model as it has a better riding hull than its predicessor, a much taller console with improved ergonomics, allows flat mounting electronic displays in the electronics box and is not excessively heavy like the post 2000 models.
