  1. Powerpole tubing through transom, yay or nay?

    They were installed on my boat by previous owner
  2. What did you do to your boat today?

    What are you doing with the 8’ Poles
  3. Seadek install

    Looks great
  4. Storage compartments

    Good thinking on the wood. Bore scope won’t work too much foam, but I may be able to run a stiff wire around to check clearances. The rod holders were installed to hold my backrest.
  5. Storage compartments

    This is where I was thinking of cutting in the storage / glove boxes. The Bayfisher series has a huge lack of storage. I don’t believe this will cause any structural issues. What do you guys think.
  6. Storage compartments

    I could kick myself. I was just in the boat the other day and forgot to take pictures- even after removing the cover to do the work.
  7. Storage compartments

    Has anyone cut storage compartments into their rear bulkhead, I have a 1997 Hewes Bayfisher 18’. It doesn’t have the compartments that you sit on while driving-just a solid deck. I’m looking to cut one or two in the vertical bulkhead . I know I would have to dig out some foam but I don’t think there is nothing else in that location. This boat has limited storage and I’d like to make one or both water tight any help would be great- I’ll try to get some pictures tomorrow of the exact area on my boat.
  8. What did you do to your boat today?

    Acid wash and re wax . Not to bad for a 21 year old boat.
  9. What did you do to your boat today?

    Air chisel worked for me
  10. Has anyone ran premixed fuel in their normal 4 stroke generator? I keep thinking of trying this in the ( non hurricane season) to see how it runs. I'm sure over a period of time you would need to clean or replace the spark plug. I try looking at my boat with a 30 gallon tank of pre mixed fuel as another source of fuel during the hurricanes.
  11. Who fishes with their best friend?

    Not real sure why this site likes to turn your pictures sideways
  12. Whatchamacallit?

  13. bilge hatch access

    I would assume they would be the same
