    Hewes RF18
  1. 2017 Hewes 18' Redfisher w/ 150sho

    Mike, very nice rocketship. Sorry to see you are selling it. One of the nicest RFs I've seen. Makes me want to go into the garage and get to work on mine. I can't see why it's priced so low. I paid more than that for my 2018 w/115 SHO and less bells and whistles. Best of luck selling it.
  2. Is one battery enough?

    Hi Geeviam, Where's your poling platform? Looks cool without it. I am clearly not as technical as you, my dealer installed my Rhodan, batteries and charger. Thanks for sharing your setup. You have a nice looking boat, Glenn I have 2 batteries in the console plus charger 3rd battery (starter battery) is in bow hatch plug to charge batteries is in right side of console under rod holders I like the flush mount plug for TM in bow cause I'm known to be clumsy t
  3. Is one battery enough?

    I'm all set now. Ended up with 3 batteries, a charger and a 24V Rhodan trolling motor. My thanks to everyone that responded. Just returned from Islamorada. Ran the boat back to Flamingo, boat ran like a champ. Glenn

  7. New Redfisher 18 / Introduction

    Hi Tom, Hope all is well with you and your rig. We ended up going with the Rhodan version of the ipilot trolling motor. Just returned home from Islamorada, while we were there we had a chance to run back to Flamingo. Boat made the long run like champ. It was a bit windy and crossing some of that open water makes me really apprechiate the larger heavier Hewes vs a Maverick. Yet it still carved through Tin Can Channel as nimble as a smaller boat. Hope you are gettng good use from yours. Glenn

    Hi Tom, The 4 blade 18" pitch prop did the trick. Hole shot is much improved. I can get up on plane in a couple boat lengths. Top end dropped from 48 to 43 but that's ok. Boat handles like a dream, stays hooked up on sharp turns and on plane at lower speeds. Hope you're still having fun in NC Glenn

    Funny you mention the Keys Troy. We will be in islamorada August and October. We usually spend about 40 days a year fishing in islamorada

    Yikes Troy! I need to follow you out one day. Nice haul. I've noticed the Snook fishing has slowed considerably on the flats in recent weeks. It's been pretty flat, guess I need to venture out of the pass a little. Thanks for sharing the pics Glenn

    Hi Tom, I'm so envious regarding the trolling motor. I go in for my 20 hour tomorrow and wish I was adding the TM. Is that the 24V w/gps? If you don’t mind, what prop are you running and are you happy with it? I’m currently using a 3 blade 13 1/8 X 19” pitch and while top end is excellent at 47 mph the hole shot is not good so we’re changing it out for a 4 blade 18” clever style. Nice chatting with you.

    Hi Tom and welcome. Have you considered taking the factory tour? I was able to take the tour earlier this year and was actually there the day my hull & deck came together. Got to meet the Guys that were building my boat. Charlie Johnson at MBG does a great job not only with the tour but as a resource afterwards. He's a great ambassador for the brand This is our 2nd RF18, we had a 2013 and now the 2018 I can't believe the improvements 5 years made. We love our new RF and we loved our previous RF as well. Best of luck to you, Glenn 2013 2018
  15. Livewell Stand Pipe

    Hi Funflats, I received the strainer from Amazon (thank you for the Link) and I have a factory standpipe. Where did you get the adapter that attaches the strainer to the standpipe since they are a different size? Thanks agin for sharing your invention, can't wait to try it Thanks, Glenn
