  1. Replacment water pick up grate / Cheese grater

    Let me know how you get the old plastic one off. I've had a new one for 3 years now, can't move the old.
  2. Hydro Tec Marine Performance???

    59 w a 21p merc. Mirage plus w 1 " taken out so a 20". But the feel good prop all around is a 19 P merc mirage plus. 54-55 mph light load max. , but the 19 seems like a big hole shot difference . Whole head was exchanged local marina did work after I found hydro tec. Can't beat it from my experience. It jumps on plane. Good luck can't go wrong.
  3. Hydro Tec Marine Performance???

    Year 5 or 6 on a new Powerhead with reeds, etc forget which phase kit on a Vmax OX66 150. Its on a MA18 I believe it puts out over 180hp. Based on the hole shot and performance I would hate to have to strap a 4 stroke on it one day. Probably 500 plus hours since new powerhead.
  4. 18MA VS 18 EGRET

    Splitting hairs. But you ll save a lot of $$ going for the MA 18 if clean. IMO the E18 isnt worth the addl $ they want for them. Both are flats / bay boats that do a lot of things well.
  5. 2002 MA latch hinges

    My 01 used Southco lathches to close all hatches. The lockable rod locker on Orr was a Perko lock.
  6. Keel Guard on MA17

    Gonna try this on my MA18----- There is a company called RSPro ( rail saver pro)-- I have no affiliation. It is a product used for SUP paddle boards that absorbs shock and protects the rail of the board from the carbon blade / paddle. and is thin protective, clear and adhesive--- but removable. It is basically helicopter blade tape made by 3m. I don't know if it can handle being bent in a deep angle , but gonna try it. Could be an excellent alternative.
  7. Maverick 18.5 - Price Check

    My '01 goes down as one of my best toy purchases. Can't go wrong. Great set up.
  8. 2002 18.5 Maverick Master Angler - Sold

    Great set up. Biased my 01 w that same power is best boat I've ever owned. GLWS. Surprised it's not gone.
  9. 1978 18' Maverick / berg

    Looks great. You will have a one of a kind custom classic when Randy is done.
  10. Mine starting life the same color, I painted it Imron white blue to match my CC. The Vmax Ox66 is a great engine for the MA18. I blew a power head and replaced w a Hydra tec ( sp) and added a lil HP. Have fun w it. Great Boats. Can't ever seem to sell mine.
  11. 90 HP 4 S on an 18.5 Maverick MA?

    Fred flintstone-- don't do it. Nothing less then 150 hp.--IMO
  12. 17 vs 18.5 MA

    Yup. Ran one(older 18hpx) across Biscayne one day. Ride hurt but it poked and fished quiet.
  13. MA 18.5 vs 18 HPX-V

    Very true. I never understood the bay boat craze with low gunwales that weren't high enough to grab and not wide enough to walk on-- like fishing in a box. The MA 18 does many things well. Newer HPXV is next in line.
  14. The day has come bilge pump went

    Pump is fine. It's the wires from the console to bilge. Have to re wire. No as bad as full replacement, a little less work. One of the wires was almost dust when opened, 15 years guess it's due.
  15. Been waiting on it and it happened as I checked system before putting it in h2o. My 10 year old bilge pump finally went in my MA18. Dreading playing around in there, any tricks or suggestions let me know.
