  1. 1998 Maverick Master Angler 17

    For sure good buy. Sand & repaint bottom and all good for under $10K.....Maybe! Looks like it permanently sits in saltwater. I like it though.
  2. Not mine. If the statement that the boat has under 100hrs is true this is a ridiculous find! This is only a few miles from my house. May have to go look at this one just to see it. Thoughts? https://fortmyers.craigslist.org/lee/boa/d/2001-maverick-185-master/6358793018.html
  3. Jackplate.... YES or NO??

    Couldn't agree more. I fish in a lot of no wake areas where you need to idle along a shallow flat to get to where you want to fish. Having the prop always pushing directly forward is huge for this. I wouldn't have a boat without one.
  4. 2016 Maverick HPX-V FOR SALE

    WOW. Maverick could this in a sales brochure! Great pic!
  5. My 2500 Build

    I'm on my way to buy a lotto ticket! CONGRATS! ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! I like what you did with the tower powder coating color and the Yami in white! I need to hire a guide who runs one of these.
  6. 2001 Maverick 18.5 Master Angler - $17500 (Fort Myers)

    I was going to buy this one before I sold mine. Seems to what you're looking for and you can choose from multiple colors, fabrics etc....I'm sure others can chime in on what they're using. https://www.boatcoversdirect.com/products/boat_covers/MAVERICK_275/18.5_MASTER_ANGLER_W-_POLING_PLATFORM_9797/
  7. 2600 HPS for Sale $74,995.00

    Gorgeous. Price?
  8. 2006 MA 21' w/F225

    Not mine. This was listed a while back. First few pics are odd. Looks like someone took photo's off a computer screen? I guess it didn't sell. Marco Island. 965hrs. Don't see many of these w/4 strokes. I have a buddy that had that same year motor on a Dorado 23' and put over 4,000 hrs on it. Do you think $30K is fair? https://fortmyers.craigslist.org/col/boa/d/21-master-angler-maverick/6376724427.html
  9. 2015 Pathfinder 2200 TRS

    Nice looking boat. You know what kind of numbers you get with the 200? GLWS. Shouldn't take long.
  10. 2005 Maverick 21' MA on BT

  11. Action Welding and Marine kudos

    That's great. These guys are a customer of mine and do top notch work for a lot of OEM mfgs. I highly recommend them for any welding projects.
  12. Brutal start, but it came together nicely

    Wow, nice ending to a rough start. Thanks for sharing. Those trout look very healthy! BTW it's 85 degrees here today.....LOL.
  13. 2005 Maverick 21' MA on BT

    Yep, Yep & Yep to all the above. I just like seeing these come up. They're always going to be the guys that are HPDI fans and ones that are not. Everybody has their story! For me it would have to be a very special circumstance to own another.
  14. FIRE SALE! Pathfinder 26hps for sale ($21000)

    Wowzeee. That's crazy. Wonder where all those parts go? I don't think you could get that rebuilt back for what $75K? That 's prob what you could buy a 2014 for. Not sure how much all those pieces would cost to build back.
  15. 2005 Maverick 21' MA on BT

    I thought the same thing. Must be afternoon sun hits it on side of house?
  16. 2005 Maverick 21' MA on BT

    This is only 20 minutes from. I think I'm going to have a talk with the wife tonight!!! @Nag Juice stay put...LOL!
  17. Maverick 21 on CL

    No but I saw it on CL too. Pop Yachts has it on consignment. That pic on the jack stand looks a little scary though. Custom seat and paint. Looks nice. Motor not for me though! Price seems fair if motor checks out.
  18. Re Locate

    I'm not sure on the 18RF, but on the 18 MA's here what came from the factory. They fit nice and they're out of the way. I don't see why you couldn't do this on the RF unless a cross stringer or something would inhibit the depth needed for a drop in, below deck box. Weekend W has a good point though. Make sure that it's done right as the box takes the most pounding. Here's the box on the 2003 18 MA I had. Side note if you do this though. There was no drain hole in battery box. If water ever got in that compartment it would get down in the bottom and sit against the batteries which I didn't like at all. You can put a drain in the bottom that would just drain into the bilge or you would have to make the lid water tight. The MA's didn't have a good lid for the drop in box IMO. I replaced all the bulb seals on all my main hatches which was great. Good luck and post pics. There was another guy on here who custom built a really nice bow drop in box you may want to search for that thread. I think it was to replace an existing MA.
  19. Pathfinder 25

    Yep, me too. It will fun watching these start to pop for sale already. My next, next, next, next boat...LOL
  20. 2007 17' Maverick HPX-V

    I was reading your description w/the Zuk and really wanted to see this set up?? No pics?
  21. WTB: Maverick HPX-V 18'

    I agree. The HPX looks way better to me than a MA. However, for me performance far out weighs that. Good luck in your search. Shouldn't take too long with your budget.
  22. 2017 Mercury motor

    For sure or save $2k and get a Zuk! The only two I will own.
  23. 2017 Mercury motor

    This guy in Gainesville has been selling a lot of pre-owned motors that he refurbs. Seems to be legit as he's on multiple web-sites and I haven't seen one complaint. That Merc is a great deal! Dan you may want to say why you're selling a motor that only has 50hrs? Hurricane, you need a 175HP! You've got 4 bridges you got to fish! HAHA
  24. WTB: Maverick HPX-V 18'

    Gotcha. I'm glad to hear you've fished on a 18 HPX-V. They're awesome for what they are built for. I've always said if money was no object I would own an 18 HPX and a 25 Hybrid PF. I have to ask, have you've ever been on a Master Angler? I'm sure some guys will chime in soon on this and if you can you should really try to get on one.
  25. WTB: Maverick HPX-V 18'

    Wow, I really like this boat a lot! I absolutely love the personal touches you did! Really nice! IMO I'm not really sure the 18 HPX is going to solve your problem. You would be going from one tech skiff to another with just a little bit more room and speed. Do you fish 80% of the time under 8-10" of water? Call me crazy but you may want to consider an 18 MA? Way better ride in rougher water and more room. You said you don't poll which would make me think you're really not fishing in really skinny water. The 18 MA will float in 12-13" and is a really stable, incredibly dry and has a ridiculously comfortable ride. I'm only saying this because I've fished both and have kids. Granted you have to find one, but with your budget you could buy, re-power and trick out an 18 MA the way you want with lots of money left over. Heck even a 21MA may be what you need. Same draft and even more room if you're really looking to stay in a true flats boat. There are some 21' MA's with low hours in your budget BTW. And let the debate begin...Haha!
