Is this really a Hewes?


Recommended Posts

Yes it is, two additional lapstrakes more than the flats boats. It is either a Sailfisher or a Marlin. There is an old Hewes Tarpon in the vintage section. They also made a rare ski boat called a Wild Cat, same hull as a Redfisher but with a top cap set up for a ski boat.The twin motor set-up is really economical and runs great. My brother-in-law was the lead mechanic for Bob Hewes on the Miami River back in the days and they had a boat the same as that and would use it to re-float boats that sank. He said that motor combination would pull the boats up no problem. It's a cl***ic for sure! Somebody posted the same boat for sale about a year ago on here, something about the transom needed to be re-done??
