    18 Light Tackle re-power 140 or 200?

    Thank you Toeknee217. The DF-150 - 200 is all about the same weight. I think I will be going with the 140hp but still doing my research.

    1998 HEWES 18 LT 140HP OR 200HP

    Thanks geeviam. I noticed you just repowered with the 140. What kind of fuel economy are you getting? Is there anything you would have done differently since your repower?
  3. Hello All It's been some time since I posted here and I'm glad to see the forum is still fully functional! I am considering re-powering my 1998 Hewes Light Tackle. Currently I have a 1998 150 Yamaha V-Max and think its time to re-power. Currently and WOT I get 54mph with light load (half tank of fuel and one person). I have had good success with Suzuki and have a good relationship with a local dealer so I am considering a Suzuki. I have been doing some research on both the DF140 (405lbs) and the DF200 (518lbs). The dealer suggests the 200hp will be fine but it looks slightly larger in size. My Current motor is 417lbs 150HP Yamaha VMax. Three years ago I took the cap off and reinforced the transom and redid the stringers and added a new gas tank. I am very confident the boat can support a 200 but of course I do have my concerns over the weight. Looking for input and hopefully someone has this setup on either a light tackle or redfish? Thanks in advance for your input! JC33460 18 HEWES Light tackle -150 vmax 34 venture -twin Suzuki 300s 38 Outisland Express - twin Caterpillar c7.1
