  1. My new 1977 18 maverick

    So I figured out a few things with my Boat speed. I put on a hydrofoil and greatly improved in getting on plane. Also my Boat had Bennett self adjusting trim tabs and when the were pinned in full up it felt like bow was buried still. I removed the trim tabs and it get on plane a lot faster and I get about 41mph top end. Still doing lots of things to it but finished my name for side:), new fuel hoses and water separators, new fuse panel, new wiring with dual batteries, all new switch panel, all new dash I made out of black starboard , new jl audio sound system, new shadow caster 10” underwater light, new led rgb cockpit lights, had trailer rebuilt, full engine service, resealed every screw and hatch and bolt on the boat, installing a bilge blower because for some reason the bilge and under front deck area stays humid. Still little touch ups here and there but almost done!

    Yeah mine had fixed Bennett tabs. Was only getting 35 mph. Took them off and gained almost 6 mph. The baitwell extensions on transom to me act as trim tabs anyways. Am I wrong.

    Here my boat I just picked up

    Thanks man!!! I'm not sure yet what it weighs... I put on a hydrofoil to see if it helps.. I need to try props and check the motor height. Right now the cav plate is about an inch above the bottom.. the boat is in really good shape but still need love here and there. What is one of these boats worth. I'm new to the maverick scene

    Thanks for the compliment! I heard that Scott deal owned this boat and this is one that made him buy the tooling and molds to make the mavericks. It is a healthy 115 etec I just serviced... runs about 36 mph at 5500 rpm. I thought it would be faster... I'm trying to figure out what this boat is valued at... I've wanted a maverick since I was a kid. And this was within reach so I snagged it up cheap. I need to look into props but not sure where to start
