    Default No listed on Hewescraft website....

    But I think you could find that out on the Hewescraft Owners Forum (google it, I don't have the site address handy...). I have twin 135's on mine, I would guess max draft at the stern sitting still is about 16"??? Of course, it was a lot deeper for awhile that time I forgot to close the valve on the floor fishbox when launching! Now, I am making a pre-launch check sheet!!

    Default hewes draft

    That is pretty close on the draft, i know when i am on step i got in some skinny water on the yukon and the bottom was about 16'' and we were still on step. I will add that some body parts get real tight when in that low of water.
    It always depends on what all you have in the boat as well that is a given.
    Good luck

    Not to bad. Only time I really noticed was heading into strong winds.
