    Repower Hewes 16 1994

    I agree. I had a 2016 etec 150 on my previous boat... 4 stroke beats on noise level for sure

    1997 Bonefisher release well

    I have a 99 bonefisher and am not aware of any release well. Are you referring to the big storage area you sit on?

    Repower Hewes 16 1994

    the max rpm for the F70 is 6300 rpm I’ll double check the fuel burn this is off of memory. But I’m 98% sure it was 3 gallons per Hour at 25mph

    Repower Hewes 16 1994

    I can tell you at 5500 rpm I’m going 30mph and my fuel is around 6-7 GPH if I’m going around 25mph I get about 3gph fuel burn I’ll make sure to update everything once I get the right prop setup

    Also I think my hole shot is great. Some people on forums would say it’s sluggish but I disagree... so far very happy with the F70

    Repower Hewes 16 1994

    I just repowered my 1999 16’ bonefisher with an F70 . I started a repower thread on it, just haven’t updated with performance numbers since I’m still breaking in the engine. currently running a stock aluminum prop I believe it’s 13.25 x 15 I hit 37mph@ 6200rpm full fuel so far once it’s properly broken in I’m going to play around with props. Looking at the powertec scd3 15 pitch to try next Hope this helps a bit

    Bring back the Lappy

    Took this bonefisher out for the second time ever today and received 3 compliments at the ramp. Definitely a head turner 😎

    1998 Pathfinder 17t KEVLAR

    I don’t think it’s far off. Given the condition it should be listed on the high end. I personally haven’t seen a Kevlar version around. Regardless, beautiful looking boat and someone will have a sweet little ride.

    Nevr-Dull to polish Yamaha motor ?

    Never dull is for metal so I wouldn’t use it for your cowling. For the cowling use Collonite 845 insulator wax.. best looking and longest lasting wax I’ve used to date .

    School me on this live well...

    So I understand this is a crustacean well and water should flow through naturally but there sure are a ton of holes... 6 holes total 5 on the transom. One is at the lowest point for the drain. I’m assuming the other 4 are for the fee flow of water. Am I supposed to keep some of them plugged? what does the one do that goes straight through the bottom?

    Rule thru hull livewell pump

    It’s a good thing it took a crap mechanically and not physically. Mine cracked at the fitting and almost sank the boat. Put a shut off valve on it if you could for next one.

    99’ bonefisher repower options

    I’m not brand loyal or anything I’m just worried about the weight increase on this size boat.

    99’ bonefisher repower options

    I repowered my old boat with a brand new 150 etec and had nothing but issues. I’m kinda hesitant about getting another, I’m not opposed to it but my wife is not thrilled with that option lol.

    99’ bonefisher repower options

    Thanks for your input! I’m getting such mixed reviews from what I read here and thehulltruth.com some say 70 is lacking others are 90 is too heavy...

    99’ bonefisher repower options

    As it sits in the water it squats a little (85hp). So I’m worried about putting another 100lbs on the back. It’s tough to find a 90hp 4 stroke that’s under 300lbs to get close to the original weight. Even the etec is 320lbs. do you happen to have performance #s with that 70?

    99’ bonefisher repower options

    Well I picked up a 1999 16’ bonefisher with an 85 yamaha on the back for cheap knowing I would need to re-power down the road. Well I was hoping to get at least a year out of the engine but looks like it going to need to be done sooner than later. So my dilemma is do I buy a used 2 stroke 90hp for less than 3k and slap that on to keep initial investment low or do I put a new 4 stroke on it. How do these boats perform with a 4 stroke? 90 vs 70hp? I was told even though you can put a 90hp on it a 70 hp would be better and save 100lbs on the transom. Anyone have real experience? Thanks
