Back in the Family

Recommended Posts

I had sold my Redfisher18 early this year because I was not able to fish (shoulder surgery), but I knew I wouldn't last long without a skiff.  I had also bought an offshore boat for PCB in 2017 and was mainly using that.  Last week I went down to Clearwater and picked up the '04 Redfish 16' that Linesider159 was selling.  The hull looks new without a scratch on it and the 115 Yamaha has 102 hours.  There are a few cosmetic issues because whoever owned it before had obviously let it sit a good while.  Some work on the trailer and new sea dek under the gunnels and maybe a power pole and I'll be good to go.  I'm going to have to do something about the poling platform because it wont fit in the garage in our townhouse in Panama City Beach.

Happy to back in a Hewes and waiting for the next OT.  Oh yeah, I'm retiring for the last time 31 Dec so I plan to spend a lot of time in SWFL and the Keys.

Wish I could have been there to meet you, but hope you enjoy the boat!

If you notice, the trailer wheels are actually oversized 14 inch. The standard size is 13 inch, so making that swap might gain you a little bit. 

Ive had a hinged poling platform with allen keys and it was very easy to use.
