  3. Update. Tried the new props from PT. The first one had to much pitch so had to return it for less pitch model. The engine is so much better now than before. However I still feel its not quite right. Flat water it runs fine but when it gets choppy you can hear the prop starting to release. The other issue is with the trim tabs maxed out I cannot get the bow to hold down in a head sea. Still not perfect..... Maybe ill try some longer actuators. Jamie
  4. Jem, Thanks for the input. I hope it does. It is currently at the lowest hole. Is your jack plate a 6 inch setback ? Jamie
  5. Here's a few pictures of the new etec mounted. To me something still doesn't seem right. It appears that the cavitation plate is still hitting higher then it should. The Yamaha 20 inch shaft appeared to sit a few inches lower. Is that possible I though it was a standard measurement. Hopefully the new prop solves the issue. Going to have a jack plate quoted today as well. Jamie
  6. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. I have a Power tech prop on the way. I hoping this might help resolve the issue. If not I might have to look at jack plates. Cheers, Jamie
  7. Thanks for the help guys. No set back. Engine is directly on transom with no jack plate. Very frustrating. Going to give Marcus a call today and hopefully the 4 blade helps. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Jamie
  8. Recently purchased a 2001 2200V with a old vmax 225. Decided to repower the boat with a new Evinrude G2 175. Called maverick to confirm shaft length and they said 20 inch shaft. Vmax that was on there was 20 inches as well. Pick up the boat this week and the boat is caviating like crazy and is basically unusable. Bring the boat back and they drop it down to the lowest hole and it improved a little but it’s still cavitating. I owned a lot of boats and cannot seem to come up with a solution for this. The only way the engine will get traction is with the engine fully down and cannot use any tilt without cavitation. Has anyone had issues like this with the 2200v ? Or any suggestions that might help ? Current Prop is a Rebel 3 Blade 15 1/4 x 19. Thanks , Jamie
  9. Quick question for you guys. Picked up a 2002 2200 v that needs a repower. Does anyone know the correct shaft length for this boat ? Thanks Jamie

    Cushions - Hewes 97 20 LT

    Jem, Thanks for the kind words . I agree with you I absolutely hate red. I was thinking to spray it light grey or white this off season but the gel coat is in pretty good shape still. I've decided to put the effort into the wiring and systems on the boat first. For the deal I got this thing for I think ill end up spraying it next season. Jamie

    Cushions - Hewes 97 20 LT

    Good Morning, Picked up this 97 Hewes 20 LT last season up on Cape Cod from the original owner that fished the Brewster flats. I'm a guide in Buzzards Bay which is just south of the cape in the Northeast. I have had my eyes on these for a while as I do a lot of backwater and flats fly fishing / light tackle trips In the spring time. The boat has been nothing but a joy so far. Going through her this offseason with the addition of a power pole, new electronics and going through all the electrical on the boat. I'm looking to purchase some new cushions as well. Maverick mentioned Sorite Cushions down In Florida who would be the best for the old style cushions. This boat has the old style flip up back rest which I do not really care for so I would like to go with the new style cushions they are using on the 18 currently. The mentioned the best bet would be contacting a dealer to get pricing and purchase this. Living up in the Northeast its pretty thin with dealers. Does anyone have a good dealer that they have used for sourcing parts like this down south ? Appreciate any help. Tight Lines, Jamie
