Two Outrages and a Montauk (Phil T's Personal Page) 03/27/2005
On New Years weekend 2017, I adopted my 3rd Boston Whaler and my second Outrage 17.

It is a 1992 model with a 1992 Evinrude 115.

I plan a stem to stern update including hoses, wiring and cleaning. First thing on the list is a new trailer.

On the day I brought her home.

Past Boats:

1991 Outrage 17:
2003 Yamaha 115 4-stroke
2003 Loadrite trailer

Purchased: Fall 2005
SOLD: Summer 2012

During the sea trial on the Nansemond River (South of Norfolk,VA) in September 2005 (84 degrees).

In Virginia Beach at the start of my 700 mile trip home.

Attending the 2009 Manhattan Boston Whaler Run
My boat is in the second from the left.

First day of 2009 season - March 8. 38 degrees and no one out at all. This is one of the half dozen calm days we get all year.

Getting a bit of air - 2008 Piscatisqua Gathering

I redid all the wiring in the console, added bus bar and installed new panels. Moved gauges and added horn, 12v.

New Wiring:

New OEM Instrument Panels and reorganized gauges and switches.

Added Dri Dek

Relocated VHF on a rail mount and installed OEM Yamaha rigging hose.

2011 Enhancements

Moved Battery to the console

Added 3 ft swing away trailer extension to existing tongue:

Winter frame: I use all the boat lines to secure the frame. The one year I did not, a Nor-easter destroyed the frames and tarp due to the 70 mph winds.

The Dri-Dek was probably the best improvement I did. It keeps the deck free from dings and dirt. It feels good on bare feet. I love knowing you can jump in wearing any kind of shoes or sandy feet. I plan to do my 1991 Outrage this spring as well.

Phil, that is a real good looking early Outrage 17' you have. I don't see them very often in that condition and with a new engine and trailer.

Phil I just bought a 94 17 Outrage, and am looking at a Suntop. My boat has the factory leaning post, instead of an RPS. Can you stand up with your sun-top up and not hit your head. I am 5ft 11.

Nice Whalers! Like the swing away tongue extension, where did you pick that up Phil?
Jeffrey Stone Date Posted: April 20, 2016 - 4:51 PM
Too funny! Just noticed you picture off Jewell Island! If you google earth Jewell Island I just happened to be caught in the satellite photo on the most recent pic they have! Zoom in on the boat closest to the pilings, it's my 1979 Revenge with and inflatable tended tethered up, I must have been aboard I was there for 3 nights that weekend! Small world for sure Phil!
