  1. Today
  2. I used this cable https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012R2PHG/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 it was just long enough to snake from engine, through cable tube under deck, and up through hole in the shelf inside console.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I wish I would have took some measurements when I was in Florida at the beginning of the month, I would have all the stuff fab up for the move already.
  5. Thanks. Guess it's impossible to go off all the specs. If I work back based off yours robalo specs don't make sense... draft up says 21" so if add that to your keel to ground that should put waterline at 43". Bridge clearance is 9'2" so that should put total height at 12'9". Add the halo at 17" and specs say you would be at 14'2". Does it look like the halo would be easy to remove if necessary - bolts accessible? Thx again!
  6. i also did this with the help of that quoted hulltruth thread above. piece of cake really. so much space under that shelf in the center console too... thinking of modifying it for more storage... maybe move the battery there like Hook-Em Out mentioned in another thread
  7. I measured from the keel to the ground on the trailer and it is approximately 22". Can't tell you water line and such as we haven't put it in the water yet. Still rigging it. I have had many boats that I have trailered and this boat sits beautifully on my custom trailer.
  8. Wow that's great. Congrats. Do you have a measurement of how far off the bottom of the keel is to the ground? Or waterline off the ground? That would be very helpful. Thanks.
  9. Hey guys, Made it to the marina and did an absolute measure from the ground to the top of the open array Radar. With my custom Phoenix trailer, it is 13' 4". We measured multiple times and even pulled it in and out of the 14' garage bay with the array on the boat.
  10. Ok got turned down back in april for yellowing bolsters R222. Fine whatever I will just order the bolsters. So i did on 5/29. Still waiting. My local dealer has not been able to provide me with awnsers. So finally i try Robalo again today 6/28. Did get call back. Seemed like i was going to get some help but after 3 conversations with Ian Kalinowski. His final response was I cant help you. You need to talk to your dealer. All i am asking for is an idea of when i can get these bolsters. I am just trying to buy them. Horrible ROBALO customer service. Next boat I will be looking elsewhere. WOW!!!!!!
  11. Yes showing up on my 2015 R222 bow bolster

  14. I am still trying to resolve my R222 issue nothing major. I will report back as soon as issue is resolved. I am also looking to move up in size. Love the boat. Just not customer service so far.
  15. It is puzzling. I've had only a small bit of communication with them (it was regarding the forum signup not sending the confirmation email) and they did not respond at first. I then called and left a message, still no response. I then called again and left a more insistent message and they finally responded. I will be dealing with a number of manufacturing issues on my R160 with my dealer shortly, and it will be interesting to see how Robalo handles them. I bought this bought as a likely precursor to buying a larger boat in the future, and the manufacturing quality, dealer response, and manufacturer response will point to whether I'm going to give Robalo any future business. So far, the dealer response has been less than overwhelming, but I will be detailing things to them in the next week or so and I expect results. My initial take on the R160 is with dramatically misaligned rub rail cap, bilge filled with 1/2 dozen wire tire scraps and a pile of screws, block of foam suddenly appearing in the rear port compartment, and bilge running for 5 minutes after it's dry isn't promising.
  16. Why dosn't any one at robalo corporate return calls or talk to thier cutomers. Just got call back.
  17. Last week
  18. Thanks, I do have a Mako 204 in my shop here in Ohio... But I am really getting the taste of this salt life...
  19. Don't you hate when the boat is 1,215 miles away? Mine is 80, feels like 1,215. With the cable you will get all sorts of data including trim, yes. You do have to connect the two pink cables that I mentioned. No idea why Yamaha has them not connected together. Also, both the receptacle for the Lowrance cable and the two pink cables have dead plugs in them that you have to remove.
  20. Thanks for the reply... I already have the Lowrance cable and a NMEA 2000 kit, but my boat is 1215 miles away by car. I was double checking it would plug into my Yamaha F70. I have a Lowrance HDS7 touch on my R160. Do you get trim info also thru the cable?
  21. Looking forward to hearing your results. Enjoy that new boat... It's a real badass in nasty chop!
  22. Absolutely, i fully intend to measure it tomorrow and have an exact height. I was thinking that it would be closer to 15' after everything I researched and a couple bigger boats I measured. I measured a Mako 34 on the trailer and it had open array and was 14'8". I am also looking at a quick connect option for the array. I will have more answers tomorrow for sure
  23. Definately sounds from what everyone is saying height is fine (very close) with the door radar but to comply with Halo we're going to have to remove it. Mike, I'm very curious how yours end up when you get it tomorrow. I would really appreciate you letting me know how you end up on height, and worst case if we have to remove the halo - does it look like all the bolts are accessible and will be fairly easy to do? I'm holding off (although leaving it right down to the wire) on ordering my trailer to be sure I don't need to change anything.
  24. I'm sure about the height at the time I measured. The variable I'm not sure about is the height to the top of the radome at the same location. It's possible that the ground could have been a little unlevel or that the trailer was sitting a little differently at the time. I didn't have a long enough tape measure at the time I measured the distance below the keel to confirm that the boat was sitting the same as it was when I originally measured. It will probably be a while before I will have the boat on the trailer again, so if anyone else can provide some additional measurements, that would be greatly appreciated.
  25. Thanks for the update. Our boat will arrive tomorrow and if we have the same issues, I will absolutely contact Robalo. Are you sure about the 19' height? That seems extremely high. M
  26. On my 2014 R207 the USB is for MP3 playing on the Jensen MS30 radio. It doesn't have bluetooth, so I can play MP3s via the audio plug or the USB. I tried using it for charging my phone and I don't think it charges at all, or if so it is very low/slow charging. Here are the instructions for USB on my radio: You can connect a USB device directly to the USB interface at the rear of the radio for playback of compatible files. Playback begins automatically. Press the MODE button (8) to switch to USB mode from another source. Play/Pause (USB) During USB playback, press the MUTE button (9) to play or pause the selected track. Next/Previous File Press the l<< or >>l button (6, 7) to select the previous or next track. Folder Navigation Press the FOLDER +/- buttons (4, 5) to select the next/previous folder. Playback will begin with the first song file in the selected folder. Fast Forward/Fast Reverse Press and hold the l<< or >>l button to fast forward or fast reverse.
  27. I got the boat back on Friday, and I am very impressed with the new design of the supports on the stern seat. They really have a safe and secure design now that still looks great. They welded 4 supports under the beam that holds the seat, and it is really solid now. They also performed repairs on my helm seats, but the first trip out, it collapsed under my passenger again. It seems the only way to prevent it from collapsing is to sit all the way back into the seat and keep your feet up on the top support. Even then, if you try to stand up while the boat is moving at any speed, they seem to collapse from the combination of weight and jarring from hitting waves. This is definitely an unacceptable design flaw that has got to be solved. I'm calling my dealer again today, and I'll also be calling Robalo to try to get to the bottom of this. I hope that anyone else that is having this problem will call and complain to Robalo as well so that we can get this taken care of. As for the distance between the ground and the boat while on the trailer, it was hard to get an exact measurement, but it seems to be close to 19" from the ground where I measured to the top of the Radome. The Radome is 11" high, so that would put the distance from the keel to the top of the t-top with no radar at 10'11". Of course, you still have to consider the height of the antenna, all around light mount, etc, but this will give you an idea of what the measurements would be before adding the radar. I hope this helps. -Chris
  28. Dawg, we ordered the sea mist green one directly from the factory. We live just 25 miles from Nashville, GA and know several of the top folks up there. I've toured the factory a few times and watched them build Chaparrals and Robalos. We've owned three Chaparrals prior to our current 302. We're on Holiday Isle as well, at Waterview Towers. I'll keep an eye out for you. We'll be there for the week of July 4th.
