Another quick one, Anyone have the tank sizes for 19' and 21' '70s models? Also the max passangers for both?

19' 170hp(twin 85's)21' 200hp. All would be 20" shafts whether single or dual.

They later changed the 19 to 175hp I guess in 76 when Merc invented a 175hp.

They both had a lousy 40gal tank with optional 18gal saddle tanks. Persons were not listed but I believe my 74 19' was 8?

According to the plate on my 1977 21ft - I can put 10.5 people on board. I have had 10 on board but have not found a 1/2 person yet.

I guess my 19 was probably 9 people then.

Wow, I just put a 150 OceanPro on my 1976 Outrage 19 and [it] flies even with full fuel and six people on board. I can't imagine putting a 175 on that boat.

Basic specifications for most all classic Boston Whaler boats can be found in the REFERENCE article on that topic:

Dimension and Production Information

Rating for outboard engine horsepower in the 1970's was at the power head, not at the propeller, as it is now. This difference should be considered when selecting an engine near the maximum horsepower rating.

25hp is not much but my 19 Revenge would do slightly over 50 with one. Problem was the tank would run dry every weekend.

I ran the tank in 1975 Outrage 19 completely dry so I could record gallons remaining vs fuel gauge readings.

I found that the tank, listed as 40 gallons, actually holds 42.5 gallons.

Is it the tank or the fill hose that holds the extra?

It's the tank, Nick. On mine, at least, this boat has the shortest fill hose I have ever seen. It's a straight length of hose, about a foot long, right into the back of the tank. I doubt if the hose could hold more than a quart.
