Boston Whaler 22 OutrageThe hull of the Outrage 22 is a moderate V-hull shape that appears to have evolved from the V-20 design. The deadrise at the transom was increased compared to the V-20. The deadrise at the transom is about 16-degrees, based on an average of several measurement by various techniques. The deadrise on the 22-foot hull is greater than on previous hulls designs, but not as great on later designs for larger hulls of similar style, such as the OURAGE 25-foot or 27-foot hulls. This increased deadrise at the transom is said to improve the ride in waves, and at the time of introduction represented Boston Whaler’s deepest V-hull design. The dead rise at the transom is carried forward, increasing slightly amidship, and then increasing significantly at the bow. Whether or not the slight increase in deadrise from transom to amidship disqualifies the hull from being characterized as a constant deadrise design is debatable. V-hulls of this general type, carrying almost the same deadrise at amidships to the transom, are distinct from other hull designs which transition from a V-shape amidship to a much flatter bottom shape with very little deadrise at the transom. In those other hulls there is a very distinct change (decrease) in deadrise of the hull from amidship to transom. In the OURAGE 22 hull the change is small and subtle. Around this time the designer C. Raymond Hunt was drawing many boats with V-hull shapes often described as constant deadrise, but Hunt (and his associates) contended that there were subtle but important changes in deadrise taking place and the characterization of constant deadrise was not appropriate to their designs. See a very detailed explanation of this at the Hunt website. The 22-foot classic hull maintains the general style of Boston Whaler hulls of this period in having a runner or vestigial sponson on each side of the keel. These runners are thought to help deflect spray downward and outboard, and they contribute lift to the hull to help the hull reach hydroplane mode as speed increases. The line of the runners is carried forward, and then turns upward and inward at the bow stem, where the two lines meet and form the characteristic known as the Whaler smirk, from the visual resemblance of the appearance of the boat from headon to a smile with down-turned corners. The length to beam ratio of the outboard boat was 3:1, itself a classic ratio in hull design. With the addition of the Whaler Drive, the ratio increased to 3.26:1, becoming one of the highest length-to-beam ratios of any Boston Whaler boat in this era of production.
