    Wanted to Buy - Master Angler 18

    Seems like your budget and your "wants" are well aligned. These things come in waves, there will be none, and then 4 in a row. Be ready, drive fast, but be patient. It may be 3 months before one pops up.

    18.5 MA console Hatch?

    What year? My 2000 MA has that same part but it goes in the dry storage under the cockpit seat to cover the fuel tank inspection access. Normally there is a pie hole where that is. Guessing someone enlarged the opening and then used that to cover it, and caulked it to make it water tight. Just a guess though. Year will help.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    looks suspiciously like an old MA I saw recently . . .

    1992 18.5 Master Angler

    HL, since you resurrected this thread, what are the biggest differences between the MA and the redfisher - real world comparison?

    Great morning with Quest4Reds

    I think everyone has seen Quest4reds posts asking about the various MBG models out there, as he contemplates his first "major" boat purchase. Ive corresponded with him periodically over the past 4 or 5 years on various other NC fishing forums but had never met him. I was glad to see him pop up on MBG looking for a boat. It looks like he is leaning towards a "general purpose flats boat", so the Hewes redfisher and Maverick Master Angler were high on his list. Since he had been on a redfisher, I threw out an invite to experience the magic carpet ride of my MA for a quick Dawn Patrol session this a.m. and he took me up on it. He made the 2 hr dive down to make it happen in spite of a major cold front, 30 mph wind gusts, poor recent fishing reports, and terrible tide that were waiting for him, but if you want to test an MA, those are the ideal conditions. The weather did not disappoint and we got the pleasure of bouncing over whitecaps in the intercoastal and suffering through hand numbing temps, but we found the fish and compared notes on the two boat types. I think he will go for a redfisher in the end, and I think its a great choice. His budget allows him to get something a lot newer than any MA 18 would allow. 2008 is getting further and further away (hint hint MBG). Regardless of his poor taste in boats ;), it was interesting to hear some of his observations about the MA vs the Redfisher (I didnt know that the MA has much wider gunnels and beam than the redfisher). Mostly it was really cool to finally have the chance to meet a guy who I've only known virtually for 4+ years. I know that facebook has killed a lot of forums, but over the years I have met some really great people on fishing and boating forums. I hope MBG keeps this one going and promotes it to their new owners - and that all of us promote it to anybody we sell our boats to or see on the water in an MBG vessel. Quest for Reds (Matt) is a great guy and Im looking forward to trying out whatever Redfisher he ends up in -even if it is a second rate boat compared to the mighty, legendary, and increasingly rare MA!!
  8. I have a buddy whonis pushing me hard to get a Talon, but it is the consistent stories like this that have me firmly locked in on powerpole. Just forcing myself to wait one full year from the major repair to make sure she is as solid as we think.

    Figured out Dino's Secret Bait

    I thought fishing for sawfish was illegal down there. You really have to watch that guy.

    Group 27 vs Group 31 -24v Trolling motor

    I guess that with a 22, you MIGHT(?) need more than I do, and you canprobably afford the weight. Probably better to get another 22 owners opinion but my guess is that 27s would be fine, 31s better if you fish long days and or big currents.

    Group 27 vs Group 31 -24v Trolling motor

    I use 27s on my 18 MA 80# I pilot. I charge them every night and use them in heavy curremts. Have never even come close to running them down. Having said that, if you can fit 31s and afford the weight and cost, bigger is better.
