Hewes with F300!

Recommended Posts

I’m curious if it has the master angler bottom. I know they talked about bringing it back, but in the Hewes lineup because that is there flats boat line.

20" saves ya about 25 lbs. I kinda like the 25". Will keep the bottom cowling out of the water when setting down. My Pathfinder could use a 25" for that very reason and not to mention it would fix the rigging hitting the transom if the jack plate is not full up when trimming up to load and unload. I would imagine that setup is going to run post 60 mph very easy.

jh141,  If that’s a 21 Hewes RF  I would imagine that 70 plus MPH would be a really  easy target to hit with 300HP .  Joe R

I'm liking what I see, but confused.  Is this a new boat on the assembly line at the Hewes Plant?  It does look like a Hewes 21!  Bringing out the original molds?  Or, a new design?  Either way, it's going to fly with that power-pack!

geeviam , I think they are chumming the forum to get some idea what people are thinking . If it has a 25 inch shaft motor I would think it is more of a bay boat than flats boat . I believe all the flats boat where designed for short shaft motors and the pathfinder hulls (bay boats ) where designed for 25 inch shaft motors In the past . I’m thinking it may be a redesigned 21 hewes hull maybe a little larger than 21  with a lot of pathfinder influence on the lower hull design . Or maybe it isn’t the MBC plant and it’s someone’s Hewes that is hanging a 300 on the back . They have managed to get our attention . Joe R

Oh its the plant. They teased it up on the plant tour last week then ran up posts on their socials.  Which by the way if you haven't seen the Facebook plant tours they are interesting and well worth the watch.

You mean 25” not 30” right Joe?

Maybe I’m missing something but seems a 250 sho would be a way better fit. 20 inch shaft and a fair amount lighter

That’s what I’m thinking as well, unless the thing is like 4000 lbs. with a bay boat dead rise.

Agreed.  I don't think I can remember any boat maker designing a 25" transom for a true flats boat.

Hoping for a running Pad!

Me too!

I THINK this is a flats boats top cap on a bay boat hull which is a cool idea.  Probably a little more deadrise to please the "MA soft ride" fans.  If it doesn't have a transom pocket, the jack plate and 25" shaft will be a good fit, to add some setback and still keep the prop down into cleaner water.  This looks like a great near-shore fishing platform that will ride nicely, and has plenty of casting deck space for fishing or bikini sun-bathing at the sand bar 😍.  And it will be very fast when some extra speed is needed!  😎
