  1. Hewes Center Console Beverage Holder

    Made of 1/2" Marine Starboard. Just in time for Christmas. This may fit other Hewes center consoles. This setup is from a 2002 RF18. Many Hewes consoles are the same measurements. Measure carefully. There are various cup holders on the market. Stainless and Poly. The ones shown here are poly from Walmart. A 3.5" hole saw did the job. Cut the holes in the holder first then place it on the console and drill the console holes. I filled in the four pre drilled holes with black silicone and inserted a brass flare in the middle and connected a clear plastic tube for drainage You will have to drill your own holes for cup holders as well as stainless mount screws to the console. You can get a carbon steel hole saw set from Harbor Freight cheap. Max size for this piece is 4". Price shipped is $100. Send payment as family gift to my PayPal account: roomtone@msn.com. As soon as payment is posted it will be in the USPS mail ASAP. Any other questions PM me or post here. Cross posted.

  6. Trim Tab Replacement

    Just did one of mine on a RF18. Pull the old wire out. Drill the hole out with correct size bit. Have a helper push wire through. You get on your stomach and reach in and pull the wire as the helper pushes it. Before you start, get a flashlight to locate the new wire. Don’t cut the wire. Coil it and tie wrap. Put a little 4200 on the cap and silicone on the screws to make it watertight. Same with trim tab cover screws.

    Did you fabricate the black starboard to fit the cup holders?
  8. Switch Panel... Wiring

    Well worth the drive but there is a long wait to get your rig in.
  9. Console Seat Cushion Replacement

  10. Brunswick buys Power Products

    As the Mod said politics doesn’t mix with trim tabs. I’m out..
  11. Brunswick buys Power Products

    And the price for Lenco products keeps rising with no end in sight. All about profits with them. Even the dealers are being squeezed with a whopping 10% discount. Capitalism gone mad.
  12. How is the new boot secured to the switch so it doesn’t come off? whats the secret? Mine keeps pulling off when removing the key.
  13. Where are the current posts?

    This is not a popular site for Redfishers. I read the posts and they are not very current. So where are all the Redfisher owners posting?
  14. Garmin GPSMAP 740S

    Is this unit available? Where located?
  15. Flip up anchor light repair

    Hella Marine, maker of these lights advises not to use LED festoon bulbs as a replacement. They are not CG certified for correct brightness and lumen output. I bought their approved replacement. Keep it upright always.....no water inside.
