    Poling Platform Install help

    Called Hewes and they recommended lag screws and I think I'm going to go with that. Don't really want to cut access in everything. 2" screws on the top two holes and 2 1/2" on the bottom two. Starboard wedge fits perfect. 5200 or 4200??? Thoughts??
  2. This is the trailer that came with the boat when I bought it last year. The trailer is in excellent condition but obviously way too short. I'v been looking around for a good used trailer but have no idea what length I should be looking at. What do you have your boat sitting on?

    Thanks. Sad thing is I've only been out 4 times. Baseball, football, yardwork, and then start all over again.

    That's my thought. Take it and have it modified.

    Poling Platform Install help

    Ok guys, before I start drilling. My plan is to align the top mount first then do the transom mount. While checking the fit I noticed the transom mount doesn't sit flush. Will the bolts cinch it up against the transom? Feels like there's a little give. Measure twice cut once

    Should I use a washer on the transom mount lag screws?

    Poling Platform Install help

    I picked up 92 Redfisher last fall and it never had a poling platform installed on it. It's my understanding that the older Hewes were installed with just lag screws on the transom and I"m not sure what was used on the top deck mounts. Doing this install myself won't be hard (famous last words). I'm assuming since most of the weight will be supported by the top mounts I will need to align and install them first then the transom mounts. I'm also assuming I need to cut an access hole for the transom mounts if I end up using the through bolt method. Do I need to drill an additional hole to run the wires for the light? Did Hewes install any backing plates on the older Redfisher? What I need is a good parts list for both the top and transom mount hardware and suggestions of what order to do things. It will be appreciated if you can share any pictures of how your platform is mounted and maybe the inside access hole. thanks,

    Did you mount your Fire Extinguisher?

    This is how it's mounted on my 92 Redfisher. Sit's in there nice and tight. FYI there's a new fresh one on the boat.

    The age is the main reason. Peace of mind. My plan is to replace everything....

    Plumbing???

    I have a 92 Redfisher that I picked up last fall and would like to replace the entire plumbing system in it. Besides the original hardware being 27 years old, the original owner replaced all the hoses with garden hoses. I just don't trust it. Is this something I could do myself? I'll add more pictures over the next couple of days.
