  1. 02 redfisher rear running light?

    I keep mine up on my 21 rf to keep the water out. The old owner learned the hard way.

    Did you get the 225? I'm really interested in hearing about your performance numbers vs the 200.
  4. I need help finding a replacement for a friend.

    I don't understand how they get a proper bond by injecting something into the damaged stringer? Sounds like a quick fix too me.

    That bunk could be flexing and allowing that bunk mount to really push into the hull? I had a boat hull get damaged years ago from improper trailer setup.

    I'm sorry your boat is busted up. I love my 02 21' redfisher but I know it's not the strongest hull based on what I've seen so far. I understand the reasoning behind building them as light as possible though.
  8. Duracell AGMs??

    Those batteries are Deka Intimidators basically with a different label. I bought the Deka's and paid too much, but they are doing great so far.
  9. Removing old stickers/ pinstripes etc

    You mentioned the word slick? I've seen the stickers protect the gel coat and that area will always have a different feel. I re finished a fountain boat years ago and the gel coat wouldn't even sand the same in the decal areas because it was protected from the suns UV rays. I'm not sure how deep it effects things?
  10. A Lot of Water in the Bilge

    Does the hull constantly drip water on the ground days after use?

    From what I read the 200 SHO is about 2k less vs the 250. Hydro tec claims the only difference is the ECM tune. The 200hp SHO can be fully unlocked to produce 300hp! I'm just wondering how they do this while maintaining the factory warranty?

    I couldn't find a test with the 225 sho but the 250 is pretty much exactly the same. http://www.yamaha-motor.ca/assets/pdf/power_solution_center/bulletin_4stroke_hpv6_vmax_sadb6.tmp.pdf

    Is your 03 21 rf rated for 225 or 250? I wonder if hewes did anything different to the transom when they upped the rating?
  14. Good price on 21 fusion

    I would jump on it if I didn't have my 02 21 RF.
