    Maverick 18 hpx speaker location

    Don’t think you’ll be able to mount speakers due to the fuel tank. All speakers I’ve seen mounted are in aft bulkhead. By the way, nice cup holders welded to rod holders. Cool idea!!

    stienhatchee lodging

    Spent last weekend fishing there and stayed at the Hag. People are extremely nice and dock cost was minimal. House we stayed at had been redone not too long ago. Wasn’t the best place but definitely clean and comfortable. Fishing was great!

That said, I only put the rubber plug internally when camping in Everglades. If it's just for a day trip, I place the plug from the outsi

  7. Good friend of mine and I took the HPX down to the Glades from Thursday to Sunday. Besides a few showers we had to dodge or run away from, the fishing was great! I’ve been down there enough to know a few consistent spots and learned a few more this time. Plenty of reds and snooks caught each day. Lost one really nice snook and caught a 36”. Most fish were caught on top waters. Also lost a tarpon but really didn’t have the patience to fish for them using artificials. On Sunday, we made the decision to leave Everglades city and head back up to Jax to catch a few more reds in the marsh based

    Rust Remover

    Looks like the screw is the issue. Before you use any chemicals remove the hinge. Clean the area and replace With new screws and sealant. Reach out to gemlux about safe rust remover as well. I’ve heard various products can damage and cause more rust in the end.
