    Figured out Dino's Secret Bait

    Look what I found hung up in some mangroves up Lostmans. Skrimps my butt! In the second pic you can see his brand name.

    RF 16 owners - I need a measurement - please

    On my '04 16' with a 115 yamaha the top hole is 16 3/4" up from the pocket. the motor is mounted in that top hole and is right up against the metal (aluminum) trip on the transom. BTW, looks like your up near Kennesaw; I'm in Sandy Springs and been interested in meeting some other Hewes and MBG folks around this area.

    Mine's an '04 so it wont help you. It looks like you haven't posted your ask in the Hewes Section; that will probably get you a quicker answer.

    Yamaha 4.2L cowl latch corrosion

    I had the same problem a few weeks ago. Couldn't get the cowl off my 2018 port engine to do the annual service. Since the marina shop had done the work the prior year I asked them to fix it. They called me a couple weeks later and asked: "Dave, you're not using the botat for a few weeks are you? WE HAVE TO CUT SOME THINGS UP AND IT'LL BE OUT OF SERVICE". After I calmed down they explained that they talked with Yamaha and were told to just cut the cowl and the latches off. It is under warranty so Yamaha is sending a new cowl and parts to do the repair. I'll be popping mine off every 3 months or so and lubing the latches from now on.

    Mav vs. Rf

    I've had 2 RF 16s and 3 RF 18s but never had a Mav. Fishing alone and not poling a lot, I'd go with the 16 RF. If you're going to have 3 folks then the 18'. The Hewes are so stable that even an old guy like me is comfortable walking the gunnel and it poles fine for what I do, though I'm usually on the TM. I use my current 16 RF for bass fishing here in GA and FL and also in the salt every time I have a chance. No complaints.
  9. Must not have been as rough as it was during the OT!! That is an epic day in anyone's book. Great job and congrats on a 40"+ SNOOK!

    What the heck is this thing called??

    "clam shell ventilator"!!.. Dang, no wonder I didn't know. Thanks very much Gnarly and Coto.
  13. OK, I have seen these things for many, many years but never really considered what they are. It protects against water flowing into scuppers when underway. But I now need one and dont know how to find a part I can't name. So guys, what is it? Thanks ...
  14. I have a brand new mounting bracket, knobs, screws and kit to mount the transducer on a trolling motor for an Eco Map 70 DV. Let me know if you can use it
