  1. Many years ago I had my heart set on finding a 21 Maverick MA. I looked and looked when I came across a 21 Redfisher that I could not turn down. I ended up buying that boat from a member here and absolutely loved it. I knew I might regret letting her go. She now belongs to another forum member here @mulligan and I moved into a 23 HPS. Well as luck would have it, I ended up finding this 2003 Carbon/Kevlar edition 21 Redfisher that needed some love. I have seen plenty of Carbon/Kevlar Mavericks over the years, but don't think I've ever seen a Carbon/Kevlar Redfisher. I decided to take a chance with the boat. I knew going into the project I probably wouldn't save any money, but the idea of building the boat out the way I want it from the bottom up was appealing to me. I'm very much a DIY guy and plan to do most everything myself. The biggest obstacle for me is finding time with a full time job & two kids at home under 5 years old. Thankfully I do have a nice garage, an experienced father to help and understanding neighbors who enjoy the sound of a grinder at 10pm! ha ha Anyways, I'm just in the beginning stages and wanted to start this thread to see if there was any ideas, tips, pointers that others could contribute with. I've already made a good amount of equipment purchases, but still have quite a bit more to buy. From my years in my previous 21 RF I know from the start that I want to modify the console & seating arrangements to get me slightly more elevated. My lower back is not a fan of sitting with my keester below my knees. I'm still at the drawing board, but considering either modifying the existing console to be slightly taller or if I should find another manufacturer console that might better suite my needs. I live in Southwest Florida where there's a boat builder every few miles, so there's often some good opportunity to find parts. I also want to be able to flush mount a 12" screen on the dash which will require extending the dash surface if I decide to use the stock console. I have plenty of ideas, but nothing in stone at this point. I've found a ton of useful information here on this forum & THT over the years and glad to have the insight of anyone who's been through the process before. I know @whichwaysup rebuild thread was helpful as well as @DC just did a resto job as well. My goal when it's finished is to have a beautiful, sleek, one of a kind 21 Redfisher. Plenty more to come, I'll update as I go along. Wish me luck. I added a picture of my parts List, green I've already purchased... red I still need if anyone has stuff laying around they need to get rid of. I'll add a few pictures of the boat as she sits now and update as I go along. Josh B.

  4. 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!

  7. ***PRICE REDUCED*** After much deliberation I have decided to part ways with this unique fishing machine. I have not had the time to use her like I used to so I figured I’d see if there’s anyone in the market. If you know your boats you know the rarity of a 21 Master Angler... couple that with a low hour 4-stroke, custom aluminum trailer, and custom tower and you have a truly one of a kind platform to chase Tarpon on the beach or beat the bushes for Redfish. 2003 Maverick 21 Master Angler 2007 Yamaha 225F w/ 500 hours 2012 Owens and Sons Aluminum Trailer Custom made tower by Quality T-Tops 3 custom plumped live-wells all running on Rule 1100’s Waterproof AM/FM/Aux Radio with 4 speakers Plenty of storage Gell cell deep cycle batteries with dual battery switch Garmin color GPS/Bottom machine with dual-frequency transducer Locking built in rod storage 4-blade stainless steel prop Lenco trim tabs Sea-Star hydraulic steering Rule Mate 1100 GPH automatic bilge pump Brand new upholstery The motor only has 500 hours on it and has been meticulously maintained! Just had it in the shop and have a full diagnostic report to show. 62% of the hours have been below 1,000 RPM... she has been babied! The trailer is a custom aluminum slide-on made by Owens and Sons out of St. Petersburg. It has heavy duty i-beams, tandem torsion axels, and alloy wheels with spare tire mount. I had the axles LineX’d before they were installed to prevent them from rusting! These trailers are custom made to order and top of the line quality! The boat has spent it’s life in Tampa Bay. It was custom ordered from Maverick with no poling platform and an unrigged center console. It was then fitted with a custom made half tower from Quality T-Tops. All three live-wells have been custom rigged with Rule 1100’s, new plumbing, upgraded strainers, modified overflows, and improved inflows for a total of 110 gallons of live-wells! The sea chest has been upgraded to include the stainless steel pick-up grate. The rear access hatch was upgraded to allow much easier access to the bilge than factory. She is 100% turn-key and ready to be fished! Everything is fully functional: all the lights and pumps work. Will throw in all required safety gear so you’re ready to go! She could be yours for $35,000 $30,000 Located in Tampa FL. Call or text Kevin 813-951-7070 Title in hand. Evenings are the best time to call. If I don’t answer, leave a voicemail and I’ll be sure to call you back ASAP

    1990 Redfisher budget build

    Hi guys, not new to boating but this is my first mbg made boat. I always wanted one of these lappy hulls since I bought my first flats skiff so I jumped on this opportunity when I saw this 1990 Redfisher 18 come up for sale. It was hull only with a ton of cut wires and a trailer that was falling apart. This boat had been sitting for MANY years considering the condition of the inside of the fuel tank and the battery being from 2008. I have owned the boat for about 7 months already so I am a bit ahead on the redo. I am open and would appreciate any insight or recommendations as you guys see fit.
  10. I'm looking for some advice for removing the carpet and glue under my gunnels so I can replace the carpet with either Seadek or Dekit. There appears to be lots of glue used on the factory install. I'll post some photos as soon as I can. 2005 Hewes 16 Redfisher with 115 SHO on a 6" Bobs jackplate.

  13. 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
  14. I have a 2005 Redfisher 16 with 115 SHO on a Bob's 6" jack plate. I'm looking to change prop from a Powertech SCD4 16 P because I'm not getting near the top end I was looking for. I like what I'm hearing about the Talon 19p 3 blade but wanted to see if thats my best option. At WOT I'm seeing 6300 rpm but only 41 mph, thats tabs up and jacked up about .5 -.75 inch.

    Shark Eyes Install

    I finished installing the new trolling motor and now I need to take care of the nav lights that i had to remove. I purchased some led shark eyes and need your help with the install. I'm a little hesitant to cut a hole in the side of the boat. How should I go about it and what tools should I use. What should I be careful of and expect? 4200 even thought the lights have a rubber gasket?
  19. This skiff was repaired and refurbished by Jonathan Glasser of Glasser Boatworks in December 2014/January 2015. It is the most well equipped and solid 17T that I have ever seen in person. Stringers were raised and floor and hull were reinforced before being finished with awl-grip. Hull is now rock solid and Glasser did his magic on all of the original gel coat. Every system is in working order and has been well maintained. This is the perfect low tide/everglades/west coast winter tide skiff. Runs and floats extremely shallow and has a ton of space for a 17' skiff. It is the perfect purpose-made compliment to a big bay boat. The boat and accessories for sale are as follows: - 1998 Pathfinder tunnel hull including raised stringers and reinforced hull/floor - 1998 Yamaha 50hp - 2015 Continental trailer with torsion axle and LED lights - Motorguide Xi5 w/GPS - Noco Genius dual bank smart charger - 4 pc. Carbon Marine Push pole - 8' Wang Anchor and holder - Custom Wrapped S/S steering wheel - Moonlighter push pole holders - Bennett Marine hydraulic Trim Tabs - 4 blade Powertech prop - Bob's machine shop true tracker stabilizer plate - 18 gallon TNT aluminum gas tank - Skiff Cushion redone by Pete @ Shumake's - crustacean well with recirculating pump - S/S tie downs and Pathfinder guide posts - S/S rod holders
