  3. Bring back the Lappy

    None of the boats of today have style. Don't get me wrong, there are phenomenal boats out there, but style (along with substance) is what is missing.
  4. Bring back the Lappy

    In all due respect, In a world of 35-40K plus flats boats, I don't see Hewes/Maverick separating themselves. It was very sad to see the Master Angler series go, and I fear the Redfishes will follow. The cl***ic lines of the Hewes Lappy boats draws the same love today as it did over 20 years ago. The boats of today are solid fishing platforms, but there are boats that are shallower, and there are boats that are drier, BUT there has never been a boat better looking than a 90's Hewes. You park a mint one at a ramp between an ECC, HB, Dolphin Super Skiff, and Egret, and the vast majority of people will be drawn to the Hewes cl***ic style. You do the same with a 2015 Hewes and honestly it is lost in the mix. The lapstrake hull of a Hewes is flats boat's equivalent of Nike's swoosh. I owned a 98 Bayfisher and a 99 Bonefisher, and the Hewes of today have drier and better storage, and better live wells, but they are not shallower, and the ride is no better. I can imagine that the molds either wore out, or were harder to work is the reason for the switch. I can't imagine the marketing buzz if Hewes brought back the 16 and 18 Redfishes with today's cap and a lapstrake hull. It would be hard to drive 17/92 and not swing into Central florida Marine and droll a bit over a fleet of pastel colored lappy's, but that's just one man's opinion.
