  1. I have read that dental floss can be used to easily remove the ROBALO letters and logos.
  2. Thank you Jersey Shore.
  3. Does anyone know the brand of slam latches used by Robalo? I’m planning to make a door and I’d like to get a matching latch. The existing latch has a bird logo on the backside.
  4. I mounted the Precision-9 under the step in the head compartment on my R202. It’s center to the boat, near the water line, out of sight, away from other electrical components and allows for easy cable routing. I don’t know how the step is configured in the R230, but in the R202 the step is easily removed by removing four screws. There’s plenty of space under it and it’s easily accessed.
  5. JMAC - Take a look at the maintenance schedule in the engine’s owner’s manual. The maintenance schedule will list the recommended 100 hour service items.
  6. Did you buy the boat new from the dealer back in 2017? Or did you buy the boat used from the dealer more recently?
  7. For the current model R200... I don't see any manufacturer's markings on the latch but the keys are marked "SOUTHCO". The Robalo part number for the latch is: 24.00075.
  8. The part number in the Robalo Parts Identification Guide is 24.00089, "Latch Hold Down." It looks like Cecil Marine stocks them... http://www.cecilmarineonline.com/latch-hold-down-24-00089-in-stock-ready-to-ship/
  9. I am also thinking about making a cover out of Starboard. If two additional latches could be ordered from Robalo and installed as shown in the the photo then the Starboard would be securely mounted and easily removed.
  10. Is anyone having trouble connecting their Simrad GO9 (or GO7) to their home Wi-Fi network? After several attempts, GO9 resets and a call to Simrad technical support I’ve not been able to connect to my Wi-Fi. I can see my SSID. I can type in my Wi-Fi password. I can click on the Simrad “Connect” button. But instead of connecting I just get a “Cannot connect...” error message. Any info/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
  11. You are very welcome, So Cal Fly Guy.
  12. The 2021 R200 has an ACR (Automatic Charging Relay) on board. You can see it just to the right of the battery switch. The ACR will automatically switch charging current between the two batteries as required - as long as the battery selector is the battery “1” position. So: - If the battery selector is in position “1” both batteries will be charged. - If the battery selector is in position “2” only battery 2 will be charged. The Robalo manual recommends that the battery “1” position be used when starting or running the engine. The manual also recommends that the battery “2” pos
  13. So Cal Fly Guy - For your R200... Start off by installing a fixed VHF radio with AIS receive (look at the Standard Horizon GX2400) and a Simrad G09 (or similar) chart plotter. Location, direction, speed and potential collision warning for all of the commercial and charter boat traffic will show up on the chart plotter. These two devices will provide a "good bang for the buck" and will significantly add to a safe boating experience near high commercial traffic areas.
  14. FullThrottle - Would you post a few photos of what you have built? What materials have you used? Do you have any construction tips that you could pass on to us? Thanks.
  15. I was discussing R180’s with my dealer yesterday. He said, at least for the R180 model, that all of the 2021’s are sold. Robalo isn’t accepting new orders for 2021 R180’s nor for 2022 R180’s.
  16. Does anyone know which maps come installed on the SimRad GO7 on the 2021 Robalos? Does the GO7 come only with the “base map”? Or are any of the more detailed maps included?
  17. The 2021 R180 single axel Coyote trailer has surge brakes. But, it's always best to confirm details with your dealer.
  18. You may be able to determine the manufacturing date and the model year by decoding the the hull identification number. https://www.boatsafe.com/hull-id-numbers/
  19. Wayne - Could you please list the components that you needed to purchase in order to add NMEA 2000 connectivity to the Yamaha? Thanks
  20. I have an 18’ R180, 150HP, being delivered in January. I have basically the same question. I’m going to piggyback on your question, RobaloFan202... Can anyone share their thoughts or experiences on taking the R180 (or a similar small boat) from Long Beach, CA to Catalina?
