    Hewes 21 Redfisher restoration.

    Never been given grief for my registration numbers. All it takes is a gray outline and they pop pretty good, even in low light. The first photo is letter that fade from black to chrome (not as visible but still pretty good), and the 2nd is dark gray outlined letters where the black hull shines through (these were my favorite). Both are visible in daylight. Shoot, my last boat I ran for 6 months without registration numbers actually put on. The raised chrome lettering just never did it for me on registration numbers, always looked cheap IMO. I like the black over white you posted, which you could easily change font and make it black over gray. Also, have a friend running the Nizpro flashed 250 SHO on a 21 pathfinder fusion, best we saw light was 74.6 with a 26.5 bravo fs. I think it had more but needed a little bigger prop

    Steinhatchee, Crystal River , elsewhere?

    Also, recommend having the contender unless you intend on getting super shallow in the creeks. That place is pretty spread out and running a little 16 could get old. Also, if the wind is blowing out of the west it will be hard to even get out of the channel because you have to run a ways out.

    Whatever decals you do on hull side, if any, match them to the motor decals. Really helps set it off. Loving the all black of course, personal favorite of mine

    Didn't see it mentioned, but painting the SHO black to match I assume?

    Steinhatchee, Crystal River , elsewhere?

    Go north. A lot depends on rainfall and wind as well. The closer you get to suwannee the more stained it is

    Has The Used Boat Market Gone Completely Crazy ?

    Yes the used market is ridiculous, and I'm in the industry. I ended up selling my boat and ordering a brand new one because it made more financial sense (since when has that been a thing??) Used 1990 era hewes are fetching12-15k when they couldn't sell for 8k 2 years ago. I'm at the point where you can either spend the money and enjoy life or potentially wait a couple years to save a few bucks, hoping you're still in good health. Life is short

    21 RF repower

    I had my dash molded to fit 16 Simrad. Different boat but you get the point. Miller’s fiberglass in Lakeland did the work

    Do You Use a Secret Sauce?

    I use pro cure when throwing a gold spoon for redfish. Had way too many redfish charge a spoon and veer off or follow and not strike. The stuff will stick for around 45 minutes of constant fishing, so it stays around for sure. I figure it if it gets one more to bite instead of follow it is worth it

    Overpriced? 97’ LT20

    Even in a stupid market its not worth more than 12-13 and thats being generous. Id rather spend 20-25 and find a 2005 or newer redfisher 18. Quality is leaps and bounds better than the lt series

    *LOOKING FOR HEWES 18 or 21 for sale*

    21 stopped around 2010/2011, but will be tough to find one newer than 2007 Ive had both, I actually prefer the 18 as I felt it was better balanced (with a 115) and ran low/mid 40s

    Overpriced? 97’ LT20

    Overpriced. Personally not a fan of the handling and lots had transom issues. That was a 8-11k boat 1.5 years ago. Shoot I bought one for 5k that just needed a good cleaning

    Power pole - real world thoughts on which model?

    Get a pro series 2 and dont look back. Only reason to get the blade is looks and a little less flex in the spike

    Trim Tab Cover

    I had to take my good one and give it to a fiberglass guy to make a new one. Cost around $300

    What are your Thoughts on this LT20 Layout

    Transom is screaming for help, its a weak point on those

    Anyone have Standard Mapping Florida West?

    I have their LA chip and it is good. I can take a photo of their LA imagery tomorrow. I can tell you its not as good as FMT imagery, but standard mapping does a great job (at least in the LA chip), of highlighting land vs water. I run a standard mapping chip in LA and a FMT in Florida.
