  2. Hey all - I may be selling my 2000 18 MA, which is currently in the process of going through a restoration. I've just crossed the "break even" point with this boat, and to finish the project will cost me about 10K more to do it right. If I go forward, I'll be 10K underwater with the boat, and 10K is a lot of money when you have 5 kids you need to put through college. I might decide to do it anyway, because I love the boat and if I bought another boat, I would be looking for exactly this same one. If I decide to sell it, I'll just go boatless for awhile. So, here's what you're looking at if you want to take this on: When I bought this boat 2 years ago, it was in nearly pristine condition. It had hardly been used at all. That fact hid a lurking issue of a manufacturing defect in the way that the port stringer was bonded to the hull in the stern. I used the boat 2-3 times a week for the first year and one day discovered a small, hairline crack running along a chine directly under the stringer. This crack penetrated the hull and allowed water to pass from inside the hull (I filled it up to test this) to the outside. It took very little time to realize that the cause was that the stringer had delaminated. Since that discovery, I've had work done to begin remediating the issue. I had the rear deck cut (just aft of the cockpit) and the entire deck removed to provide access. The area around the stringers was ground down, the stringers were extended to connect into the transom, and the entire area was reinforced. Drainage holes were provided to allow water to get from the area outside of the stringers into the bilge. The shop that did that work stopped making progress, so I eventually gave up on them and paid them for the work done so far. I've had another boat repair shop look over the work and they agreed that the work done was quality work and agreed with the plan to extend the stringers as we did them. As of right now, the rear deck has not been re-attached, so anyone who wants to take this on will have full view of the work done, and full access to the entire rear third of the hull from the inside. The exterior crack has not yet been addressed. Additionally, I have installed new throttle/shifter cables, have purchased new bilge and livewell pumps, and have purchased stainless steel through-hull fittings, all waiting to be installed. To finish the boat the way I want to (re-wire, VERY careful process to re-attach the rear deck, re-do plumbing, trim, and re-rig with most, if not all, new hardware, I'll be lucky to spend 10 grand. Based on what I have in the boat, and what I would expect the value to be once complete, that amount will put me about 10 grand underwater (pardon the pun). The boat is in excellent shape cosmetically. The gelcoat has very little oyster rash, and is in excellent shape. The fuel tank (poly) has been checked out and, by all accounts, there is no reason to replace it. The engine (year 2000, Yamaha OX66 150) is in phenomenal shape. It had about 400 hrs when I purchased it, and I have no idea how many hours I put on it in the first year I owned it. I haven't used the boat since January of last year. The boat would come with the following equipment (plus all the various parts) - 80# Thrust 24V Ipilot Trolling motor - Lowrance HDS 7 with side scan transducer - Pushpole (pretty basic version) - 3 tempress seats - Full, very much custom sumbrella cover (best cover fit I've ever seen) - Trailer (springs and lights replaced last year) I'll attach pics shortly, but you can find the restoration thread on this boat in the general section and see the work done to date, and I have pics of her in the Vintage Maverick photos section. Again, I'm not 100% certain I'll sell her, it is physically painful to even write this up, but if I do sell her, I will be asking for $10,000, which includes everything listed above. That puts the new owner right at the current value that these have been going for, with a boat that will have new wiring, and will be in very secure and certain structural shape for years to come. If you are interested in this, or know someone who is, PM me and we can talk through it further. I'm an honest guy and I'll make sure you know exactly what you are getting. I'm expecting the full estimate for the completion of the project late next week, and that will probably be the final deciding point on which direction I go. Pics and links below: Here are some pics of her: Here is the repair thread
  3. 1998 Hewes Bayfisher

    Hey guys, Listing my Hewes Bayfisher for sale. She has been a great boat, just looking for something a little smaller. Thinking about a maverick HPX, or similar. I have owned this boat since 2016, one previous owner. Boat is in great shape. Waxed 2x a year. Just replaced the trolling motor to the new ipilot link last month (older trolling motor is shown in some pics), Fortress 7 lb anchor, Humminbird Helix 7, and fusion sterio replaced in Jan 2018 with 4 new speakers. 4 new rod holders and wheel replaced Jan 2018 as well with custom parachord wrap. Have an Evacool fiberglass cooler will include with boat. New hubs, winch on the trailer last summer, new lights and guide posts too. Jack new as of last weekend. 24' push pole and vmarine removable holder for it as of January 2018. Power is a 150 HP Yamaha 2 stroke. Runs amazing, tops out at 48 when solo on boat. Serviced annualy by Brown Marine and will have it serviced prior to delivery. Boat does have minor Knicks as expected with a 20 year old boat. but overall great shape. Wiring is not perfect and there are the minor gel coat cracks that appear in the older hewes around hatches but overall amazing shape. Boat shows much better then a lot of newer ones. Open to trades for a smaller skiff, Prefer to stay with the MBG brand, top choice is a Maverick HPX, but willing to consider east cape, hells bay, or any higher end skiff plus cash on my end if needed. (dogs not included) Asking 16000 with everything, or consider trades as mentioned above. Not in a hurry to sell, want to see her go to a good home so listing here first. Give me a call/text if interested. 727-798-3673 Sam
  4. Me: now a Highly concerned owner of a 2007 2200V pathfinder. friend: Owns a 2002 Hewes bonefisher That began to show some floor cracking along the gunnel wall ( believed it was just the typical stress cracks taking its toll on the old boat) but he began to take on water and the bilge would not stop ! This guy is a full-time respected permit fishermen who takes pride in his boat and maintenanc. when he got a chance to evaluate his boat he noticed a crack in the outter bottom front portion of his hull. He took it to a reputable fiberglass shop that determined that cutting the floor would be the appropriate step to making a full and complete repair but, what he found was highly concerning. It was noted that a single stringer that was in place was not fiberglassed to the hull, but rather helled down with a form of an Apoxy glue on an approx 2 1/2 inch flange around the stringer. Also there was NO foam in the stringer whatsoever. Not to mention that the boat wiring was not in conduit and was simply press between the top And hau not to mention that the boat wiring was not in conduit and was simply pressed between the top And hull. So the question or concern I am posing to all members is has anybody ever experienced this type of craftsmanship from Maverick boat builders. Was this just a fluke? Was this a shortcut? Either way this boat should’ve never of been passed through inspection. My friend his son and any other guest he took on this boat could’ve been in Real jeopardy ! Back to me: As I noticed hairline gelcoat cracking along my back portion of my lower floor just before the rear decking (by the rear drains which To me is a design issue) as my boat holds deck water. I would hate to find out that I’m in the same position with my reputable build such as the Pathfinder . Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thx in advance. In pic : you will see the floor removed and the stringer. if you look closely you’ll see how it is not attached whatsoever .
  5. Here you go guys. Came with the Redfisher i just bought. Enjoy
  6. ***PRICE REDUCED*** After much deliberation I have decided to part ways with this unique fishing machine. I have not had the time to use her like I used to so I figured I’d see if there’s anyone in the market. If you know your boats you know the rarity of a 21 Master Angler... couple that with a low hour 4-stroke, custom aluminum trailer, and custom tower and you have a truly one of a kind platform to chase Tarpon on the beach or beat the bushes for Redfish. 2003 Maverick 21 Master Angler 2007 Yamaha 225F w/ 500 hours 2012 Owens and Sons Aluminum Trailer Custom made tower by Quality T-Tops 3 custom plumped live-wells all running on Rule 1100’s Waterproof AM/FM/Aux Radio with 4 speakers Plenty of storage Gell cell deep cycle batteries with dual battery switch Garmin color GPS/Bottom machine with dual-frequency transducer Locking built in rod storage 4-blade stainless steel prop Lenco trim tabs Sea-Star hydraulic steering Rule Mate 1100 GPH automatic bilge pump Brand new upholstery The motor only has 500 hours on it and has been meticulously maintained! Just had it in the shop and have a full diagnostic report to show. 62% of the hours have been below 1,000 RPM... she has been babied! The trailer is a custom aluminum slide-on made by Owens and Sons out of St. Petersburg. It has heavy duty i-beams, tandem torsion axels, and alloy wheels with spare tire mount. I had the axles LineX’d before they were installed to prevent them from rusting! These trailers are custom made to order and top of the line quality! The boat has spent it’s life in Tampa Bay. It was custom ordered from Maverick with no poling platform and an unrigged center console. It was then fitted with a custom made half tower from Quality T-Tops. All three live-wells have been custom rigged with Rule 1100’s, new plumbing, upgraded strainers, modified overflows, and improved inflows for a total of 110 gallons of live-wells! The sea chest has been upgraded to include the stainless steel pick-up grate. The rear access hatch was upgraded to allow much easier access to the bilge than factory. She is 100% turn-key and ready to be fished! Everything is fully functional: all the lights and pumps work. Will throw in all required safety gear so you’re ready to go! She could be yours for $35,000 $31,500 Located in Tampa FL. Call or text Kevin 813-951-7070 Title in hand. Evenings are the best time to call. If I don’t answer, leave a voicemail and I’ll be sure to call you back ASAP

  11. Loving my RF18

    Been fishing and enjoying this beautiful boat! Thank you again everyone.
  12. I'm a current owner of a 86 Hewes Stalker looking to jump hulls into a Redfisher or similar. My boat has a good running newer Yamaha 2 stroke 90 that I wouldn't mind moving to a new boat since most powered boats are out of my price range right now. I'm a little torn between putting the money into my boat or just going for something that already has the better storage and layout my wife would prefer for non-fishing days. I know a 90 would be under-powered on an 18 but we live in an almost exclusively idle area, as long as I can get up on plane, I'm not in a hurry. Just wanted to see what was out there. It looks like I misses an 18 Ft Redfisher a few months ago that would have fit the bill.
  13. 1972 Bonefisher, here we go!

    Hello, all. I’m brand new to the MBG forum. I’ve checked out many of your posts leading up to my decision to buy this beauty...see photos. Anyhow, as you can imagine it needs all new structural material, power, wiring, and accessories...the full Monty. But it’s a piece of history and I won’t be rushing it. So as we embark on this project, I will be leaning on everybody’s knowledge in here to help us bring this girl back to her former glory. Cheers!
  14. Hey Gang! Thought I would sign up and introduce myself after stalking your forum for a number of months! In the midst of purchasing a new Atlantic Blue Hull and Cosole Redfisher 18. Super excited to join the Maverick family. I have owned 2 different Sailfish CC in the past 12 years and sold my 2008 2660 earlier this year. It was a well used boat with nearly 2500 hours on the clock and 27000 miles on the hull! Since then I have been crawling over all sorts of bay boats, skiffs and flats boats and was continually drawn back to the Redfisher. Last week my local dealer received the boat I’m purchasing and I had a “have to have it” moment : ) I put a deposit on it and patiently waited for a weather window for a sea trail which came yesterday. All went well and looking to take delivery the middle of next week. Looking forward to the mobility of a smaller boat and the chance to get around the state a bit and fish some different waters. Boat at is powered by a 115 SHO which seems like the perfect balance of power and efficiency. Came from the factory with a power pole and Garmin 741xs. I will be adding a trolling motor in the future but wanted to see exactly how I fish it before making a decision. Look forward to getting involved with this forum and contribute when I can! Tom from West Palm Beach
