Anyone running a Hewes Redfisher ?

I have been thinking about picking up a Hewes Redfisher 18 or 21 and wanted to see if anyone was running them locally around Houston/Galveston?

Would appreciate your opinions on the Hewes Redfisher for our local waters. Thanks for your replies.

I think Jay's old boat is still for sale at Ronnies. 21' with a 250 yam.

I've got a 1997 Hewes 19foot Redfisher Tunnel Hull.

It's a great boat that can do the surf or flats. The tunnell get;s you up quickly and I've pulled a few boats off of sandbars.

The engine is strong, but needs the tilt/trim worked on.

The trailer also needs replacing.

I've got too many kids, and my fishing time is being cut down with weekend sports also.

I was hoping to find someone that is running a Redfisher in local waters around Houston that could tell me if they would recommend the boat for use around our bays?

I have been running a 21 Maverick in Galveston Bay for the past 9 years.
The Maverick has 2"s more freeboard and 2"s more beam. The running surfaces are very similar. The Redfisher is usually about 4mph faster when operateing both boats with the same horsepower. The Maverick floats more shallow and rides a little better. If you have ever been out in a Pathfinder, I think you will find both of these skiff's ride as well or better. I think Maverick has the best ride of the three.

I would be happy to meet you at the Sylvan Beach Ramp some time to run the 21' Mav. I will have access to a new 21' Fusion in a few weeks. The Redfisher shares it's hull with a Pathfinder Fusion.

Here are some photos of my Mav. These were taken at the new Cruise Ship Terminal at Bayport on Galveston Bay.

rick's boat is a beauty!!!!

i also run a 19 tunnel and have a lot of fun. works great in shallow water, but if it is speed you want, it's not the one!! handles chop, but can get a get sketchy in rolling swells in the pass or galveston channel.

can't beat an m/h/p/c product, in my opinion.
