  1. Probably a silly question but I’m doing some wiring clean up in my aft compartment on my 18’ RF and the 1 - 12V battery set up doesn’t currently have a battery switch wired in. Is it a good idea to have an on/off battery switch on a single battery system? I do keep an on board battery trickle charger hooked up when the boat is on the trailer at my home.

    18' Redfisher Live Well quit working

    Thx for the emotional support!
  3. The main live well in my 2008 18' Redfisher quit working this week. Fuse is good. When I looked at it, the #2 live well assembly appears to be almost on top of the primary one making removal of #2 necessary before I can check #1. Are all Hewes multiple live wells set up this way? I also noticed I can jiggle the #1 live well assembly a little which bothers me. The #2 live well assembly is tight as a tick. Do live wells have to be periodically maintained? Do the screens need periodic cleaning? It sure looks like a pain in the rear to have to get to my #1 assembly. I do have some corrosion in a lot of my wires and maybe that's it. I plan to look at all wiring this weekend to see if there are any wire runs I should replace. I bought 100' of #14 wire and a bunch of heat shrink marine butt connectors to use in fixing. Thanks

    Prop Guru’s Name

    I got some excellent prop advice from someone who is regularly recommended for his knowledge on this site. I’ve misplaced his name and wonder if anyone would help me remember. His company’s props are some of the best out there. Thanks in advance.

    Best Fluorocarbon Knot?

    I lost a monster red the other night right at sunset. It had to be 15+ lbs and he hit a 5" white swimming shad Gulp on a red head 1/4" jig head. He made 3 thrilling runs and I was about to turn my trolling motor around to chase him, thinking he might spool me. Then he made one last run and my line went limp. Disgusted, I reeled my line in and noticed the jig head had actually come untied from the 20# fluorocarbon leader I was using. I thought I'd tied the jig on well with an improved Clinch Knot but obviously not. What does the group think is the best knot to use when tieing heavier fluorocarbon line?

    Hatch D-shaped Adhesive Insulation

    And I'd prefer white (like exists now) vs. black if that's possible.
  8. I have to replace all of my old adhesive "D-shaped" hatch insulation. I need about 50' in total. And it can't be thicker than about 3/8". Does anyone know of a good source for this stuff? I don't see it at West Marine or Boater's Discount. Thanks for any help!

    Console Seat Cushion Replacement

    Yeah...just got up from the floor after getting my quote...$200 for just the bottom cushion! CRAP!!
  10. Well shoot...my bottom console seat cushion was unsnapped and blew out of the boat on the way home last weekend. My boat is a 2008 18' Hewes Redfisher. What's the best way to replace...is it something to get from MBG or should I just find a local vinyl trim shop to fabricate one for me? Thanks for your thoughts

    PFD Re-arming cartridge

    Just got a new PFD vest with the auto-inflate CO2 cartridge. Since I've never had or used one of these devices before...how many times will it inflate before I have to "re-arm?" I hope it's not "1 and done" like my bear spray! Thanks for any input

    Best Yamaha 2 stroke oil?

    Hey a quick question, what do you think is the best oil to use with a 2008 Yamaha two-stroke Vmax? It would seem Yamalubewould be the best but some people swear by Mercury lubes. Thx
