My 1972 Hewes ???

Recommended Posts

i think fish are attracted to pretty boats like this. just a theory i'm working on......so wax that underside!

very nice boat, in sweet condition. how about some info and extra photos? (i'm the photo liking guy, dig?) have you thought of a poling platform? though i'm sure the original didn't come with one. the first hewes i ever saw looked a bit like this boat....

is that a 16? with a 130.....hmmmm could be an 18.... how does it run?

The title says it's 17'8".So I dont know what model it is.

Yes, it runs very well with the 130. I need a bigger prop.

17'8" should be a Redfisher 18. :thumbup: Being a '72, I don't know if that was a model at that time.

I run a 130 on my '91 also. :P

I recommend a Powertech 13.25x17p 4 Blade. I have the same power setup and she runs great, and great hole shot.

I run a 19 powertech, and still get over 6000 rpm's.
