1991 Hewes 16ft Bonefisher "Lappy"


Recommended Posts


$13,000 OBO

Beautiful, sought after “lap strake” hull design

Gray hull, white deck


This boat has had one owner.  My dad purchased this boat brand new in 1991.  We have cared for this boat immensely.  Garage kept its entire life.   I took over the use and care for the boat after my dad passed in 2004.   Keeping this boat as close to its original state and well maintained have been the  driving factors for this very sentimental boat.
