  1. Can you get spare ignition keys cut locally or does a Dealer need to order?

  3. Thanks This is great info Grif
  4. R 180 - In a recent response to one of my posts an Owner alerted me that the the R 180 takes on fuel very slowly and use caution to avoid spills at the dock. Has anyone else had this problem and if so could you describe a dock fueling procedure that works for you. Is it best to add using 5 gallon cans or filling up at a service station prior to dropping it in the water . Thanks Grif
  5. Hi Was watching a video recently and the fellow presenting mentioned. Do not use the power trim support lever to hold the engine in the up position while trailering. The previous Owner did it and I have as well. I looked in Yamaha owners manual and it agrees with the video. "If the engine needs to be Up to trailer, use an additional support device to hold it there. What "other" support device can be used or is the Trim Up function enough to hold without the lever? Tx.

  8. 2017 Robalo 180 - Bottom Paint My "new to me" Robalo 180 has never been bottom painted and needs to be as it will be moored in salt water next Spring. Without putting the boat in the water ..Is there any way to "with some accuracy"....... determine where the waterline will be as I will want to stop the paint at or just above that line.
  9. The only part of my winter shutdown that fell short was running antifreeze thru the bilge pump. I poured some antif directly into the well at the stern ....hit the switch on the console but got no discharge even though I could hear the pump run. I let it go thinking that it must take quite a bit more liquid to satisfy the pump. I may try again if we get the weather. Tx Grif
  10. Hey Jersey Shore. Wanted to say thanks again for outlining the Raw Water Winterization steps. I completed the work over the weekend. I made one variation that worked well for me. Instead of using the plunger tool to introduce antifreeze into the raw water inlet I used a cheap garden hose repair kit. I cleaned up the intake with a few plumbers wire brushes. I took the female end of the plastic repair kit and caulked it into the inlet. It fit nice with only a little silicone caulk. Once set. I then connected a short hose and introduced the antifreeze just as you said.. Went great. No spills.
  11. Great Document. It will help as I see very little that has changed Great advice on the fuel ...Tx Grif
  12. Thanks . I was way off! It helps knock off one more item & makes figuring out where the fuel tank vent is easier. Grif
  13. Recently purchased a 2017 R 180. Through the Winterization process I was able to determine the function of near all of the ports. There are still a few I am that I'm not sure. The Operating Manual has only one diagram but addresses none of these thru hull openings. Does anyone know of a more complete list or better diagram. Example. There is an oval shaped chrome plate high up and close to the bow on the starboard side. Looks like there is filter media behind the plate. This I assumed is the fuel tank vent, Not sure though. Thanks Grif

    winterizing

    My bad. I don't want to remove the "whole" strainer component. Only the canister that hangs down off the casting. Clean it out if necessary. Fill with anti freeze and reinstall. I've seen a few threads that talk about doing this as a part of the winterizing effort. Tx Grif

    Hi. Anyone have a good way of removing the sea strainer? On my R 180 mine seems pretty stuck.. Anyone use a large oil filter wrench with any success? Thanks Grif
