1986 Hewes Stalker

Recommended Posts

truenative,

Here is an email corespondance I had with Joel, Bob Hewes's son-in-law, from a few years back.

"hey brian, I have seen a handful of the stalkers. pop pop hewes made them, as an alternative to the bonefishers, which had been in production, for about 15 years, by then. we actually have one here for service this week, and i know of one here, in town. i think there were only about 30 of these made,."

Almost a one of a kind boat being that only around 30 were ever made.

Sweet! A third Stalker owner on here! That's a nice '88. That is the second time I've heard of so few being made. That seems funny because I can recall seeing at least 5 (mine, yours, truenative's, plus 2 online, one in the keys) in the last year or so. I'll have to get some pics of mine up soon. Glad to hear about replacing the floor and not the cap. My floor is just about shot.

Hey guys just thought Id chime in. I am in Charleston, SC and also have a Stalker, its an 87. Had it for over a year and love it. I did have to replace some of the deck which was not to bad. Thought it was interesting that I also pull mine with a Cruiser! That make 4 total?

So this Stalker will be hitting the market soon. I'm moving to an 18' Redfisher Lappy as my wife an kids wanted more dry storage. I have upgraded the motor and controls to a Yamaha 2stroke since the above photos. 

I'm wondering if I should separate the motor and hull or if I should sell the package together. I was surprised to see how much the Yamaha 90s were going for alone. I love the motor but feel it would be a little underpowered on the new 18" boat.
