Hi gang, my current "daydream" boat is a Hewescraft Sea Runner in either 18 or 20 foot length. Does anybody have one of these and if so, how do you like the boat? We don't live in AK but have a place in Sterling, so use of the rig would be maybe 5-20 days a year: running around on Peninsula lakes (my brother likes water skiing & cruising, I like to fish so I'd use it out of Deep creek, Seward, Homer. I really like the extended transom bracket/option, as it helps keep the ocean out of the boat! I know bigger is always better, but I want to be realistic. Saw on Hewescraft site they had 115 Yamaha's powering their rigs, wonder if a 150 would be better with a kicker, or go with twin 50's or 70's?? I think cost of twins would be higher or not?? Wonder if you could get twin tanks in those models if going with twin outboards??
If anyone thinks a different brand of boat is preferable, by all means please let me know! Don't know if we'll ever get one, but who knows? I appreciate any feedback on these types of rigs, Hewescraft or not.
