  2. I am documenting the process of restoring my 1993 Hewes Bonefisher 16 originally owned by Cpt. Jared Raskob’s father of Silver Kings TV. I picked this boat up in South Carolina last summer with out any knowledge of the boat’s history. Coincidentally I stumbled on a hewes bonefisher post on Instagram and recognized the font of the registration numbers along with a custom walk board on the trailer. “That’s my boat!” I knew it. Turns out it has seen more fish and sites down in the Florida keys with Cpt. Jared and his father at the helm than I could ever claim. I knew when I purchased the boat that one day I would want to update it and get it looking it’s best again, even better than new. The 1993 Hewes Bonefisher lappy had a solid 2006 Yamaha 90 2 stroke on the back and I ran it the rest of that summer no issues pushing 40-43 WOT. After a full service and carb rebuild, seals, thermostat, water pump, plugs it was running strong. No Jack plate but I did upgrade to Bennett’s electric trim tabs which work great. The hull is structurally in great shape but has been used for all the right reasons and it shows, faded Gelcoat, old patch jobs from holes drilled for different applications, stress cracks in the corners you get the idea. Finally after searching for a proper reason to de rig my favorite boat to personally restore it I found it. A 2018 Mercury Pro XS 115.. it’s slightly used with under 100 hours, paid cash from a local on FB marketplace and no dealer install fees, back orders or taxes to deal with I knew I could make that work by selling (maybe regretfully) the Yamaha 90 2 smoke. Once I had the bonefisher down to it’s “Bare Bones” stage with everything de-rigged it was time to get into the glass work of re coring the console and going around the transom and hull with fiberglass repairs. The console which used to look like a shotgun target is now completely filled and ready for new control/gauge cut outs and fresh awlcraft 2000 topcoat. All the fun and necessary tedious prep work is beginning on the hull itself using all awlgrip systems. I have removed the front half of the bow cap to allow access to the fuel tank. I figure since I’m knowingly adding weight to the transom with the new Pro XS that I will have a larger capacity fuel tank made and will build a shelf for 2 trolling motor batteries in the forward compartment to balance it all out. Fuel tank is drawn up and I am getting it cut and welded this week and should have the hull flipped over for fairing and paint while it’s an empty shell ASAP. I will use this thread as a time line of the progress for the “Bare Bones” build. Hope this helps anyone who wants to tackle a similar task get started and is fun to follow along as I get into it!
  3. New to the forum. Been working on 1971 Hewes Bonefisher that is being passed down through the family. Going to post photos of the progress.
  4. Hey everyone, I'm in the market for a 16' - 19' flats boat. I've always loved the look of the lapstrake hulls, and ideally looking to get into a Redfisher 18. I would like to get something thats ready to be fished with a solid motor, but not afraid of one that might need a little TLC. Would also be willing to check out Bonefishers and Bayfishers as well. Budget around 14k. Thanks in advance! *edited to increase budget* Found a 93 Lappy, Thanks

    1972 Bonefisher, here we go!

    Hello, all. I’m brand new to the MBG forum. I’ve checked out many of your posts leading up to my decision to buy this beauty...see photos. Anyhow, as you can imagine it needs all new structural material, power, wiring, and accessories...the full Monty. But it’s a piece of history and I won’t be rushing it. So as we embark on this project, I will be leaning on everybody’s knowledge in here to help us bring this girl back to her former glory. Cheers!
  10. I need to replace the gas tank in my 94 hewes tournament (bonefisher) can I get the old one out without cutting cap? An can I put a new one in I don't mind going smaller but probably not under 19 or 20 gallons. Any ideas, suggestions, or help would be great. Thanks!
  11. I am looking to buy a Lappy Bonefisher or Redfisher. Redfisher is my preference but will consider a Bonefisher. Willing to consider boats in need of some work. I am located on the Chesapeake Bay but willing to transport a boat from other locations on East coast. Please contact Mike at 410-409-7733. You can see my light tackle program on Instagram @Rockfishrepublic or on Facebook @ Rockfish Republic.

    Vintage Hewes Poleability

    Hi All, I am looking into getting a used flats boat for Striper Fishing the flats in the NE. As the seas can be somewhat unpredictable, I think a 16' flats boat will give me more flexibility than even an 18' tech skiff like the HPX-V (thoughts on this?). My main question is how do the Lapstrake Hewes Bonefishers, Redfishers, Bayfishers (1990-2000) compare to the newer hulls (2000-2010) and more modern Action Crafts in terms of hull slap and ability to stay on pole for a long period of time. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks, Brendan

    1990 Hewes Bonefisher 19'

    New user here, stumbled upon this forum at the perfect time because I just got a 1990 hewes Bonefisher with a Yamaha 90 ETLF and I'm excited about getting ready to take out! As old as it is, I want to replace the fuel lines from the tank and remove any old fuel and debris in the tank first. I'm curious to find the easiest and most efficient way to do so. I will upload pictures tomorrow after work (Colin made it impossible to work on today) I look forwarded to learning from you all and giving advice when and where I can! Thanks!
