    What did you do to your boat today?

    I haven't been on my boat in two and a half weeks. She is just staring at me with those bow nav lights like a pup hoping to go for a walk. Kills me. All these danged hurricanes have the swell so nice that the kids are wearing me out in the surf. I wanna fish.

    chili------beans or no beans?

    Hmmmm - that's a convincing tune. I might have to change my vote. NO beans, more beer.

    chili------beans or no beans?

    ^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^ dang, I was going to write that same thing, then saw your post. Can't do beans on a chili dog. Don't think they had hot dogs back when Blazing Saddles was set or tat scene woulda been played out differently.

    WTB Maverick MA or Hewes lappy

    Well, I'm just up the road from you in Wilmington NC, so if you need to experience an MA, I'm sure we could arrange that experience. BYOFR (Bring your own fishing rod)!

    WTB Maverick MA or Hewes lappy

    I believe there are a couple MAs on here - one 18 and one 17. Both look like nice boats!

    That's a pretty boat and a good price. The engine probably has many years of life on it, but if the hull is in good shape, it would be worth re-powering in the future. You won't get all your money back, but you'd get a sizeable portion. I'm a "colored hull" guy myself, but these white hulls usually go quickly.

    Rail Hunt

    Ah yes, reminds me of a famous Oyster Toadfish recipe involving a cedar plank. Lots of prep and ingredients, cook it up on the cedar plank to infuse the flavor, toss the fish, eat the plank. 'tis as I feared.

    Rail Hunt

    I have always wanted to kmow how these taste. Rails and tales trips are common here, but nobody talks about eating them. I would love to try them.

    18 master angler with 300 etec

    looks like a 300 Etec weighs about 500-550 vs. a 150 hp 2s . . . I think my 2 stroke vmax is around 400 pounds. That's a lot of weight on the stern, but not as bad as I thought. The MA can handle 2 guys on the stern, but it can get a little exciting with a chop. Gonna be interesting.

    Still going strong....

    Hey boys, a little hint that Nagjuice once passed along to me: Birds dont stand on water. So if you see birdie legs above the water ahead of you, brace yourself!

    18 master angler with 300 etec

    Wow, you are doubling what that hull is rated for. Aluminum plate will probably keep the transom in one piece, but how well supported is it from twisting (i.e. full throttle torque pulling the top of the transom backwards)? That is a massive amount of engine for that hull. Also, keep in mind that these boats were made to be light. There isnt a lot of fiberglass on the bottom of the hull relative to bay or offshore boats. Unless you reinforced the entire hull, you are putting a lot of pressure on an area not originally designed for it. A 300 would easily move you 80 mph if my old 150 moves me 55. Thats scarey fast and any chop is going to beat on it. It would really stink to develop spidercracks around the chines after all that work. Biggest worry in general use would be squat. How much more does that weigh than the 150 2s the boat was designed for? You may find that with a guy in the back and nobody up front, you make a very fast submarine! All teasing aside, I am no engineer, so you have probably worked through all of this. That hull is plenty fast with a 150 or 175 on it. Putting more may compromise the thibgs that hull does so well.

    I missed that. All this time I read "150". Talk about seeing what you expect! 20k is a good price though.

    02 Master Angler 18.5 For Sale

    What am I missing here? Most post 2000 18' MAs with 4S power have been going for 22k plus. I reach out to sellers after the sale and track these. This one is well equipped, appears to be in nice shape . . . ? I haven't seen her qnd have no affiliation with the seller. Just surprised she hasnt already sold.
