    Minimum water depth

    I do not know how the Simrad works. But Garmin you have to set up the depth counting the motor length, that means in my GPS/depth '0' it is on the motor trim down keel of the motor just to be safe.

    Engine flushing

    You do not have to use the muffs anymore. Now, the motors came with the flush system. It is very simple, you have to connect the hose to motor and flush. I copied the link from Yamaha with the info so that you can see on page 61. Also I am including a link for a video... I hope this can help you!! https://www.yamahapubs.com/outboard_om/LIT-18626-09-70.pdf https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=yamaha+f150+flush+connector&&view=detail&mid=51E49BE8C735B98B799C51E49BE8C735B98B799C&&FORM=VRDGAR

    Obvious factory repair on Newly deliver R202

    Unfortunate, I had same problem in 2012 when I got my R-260. It was improve 30% by the dealer, but I was not fixed 100% as it suppose to. Next time when I get a boat, I wont pay any money until the boat it is perfect. Especially when it is something estructural like gelcoat or floor. I think they now it is almost imposible to return the boat to the factory to fix it.

    Lenco Trim Tabs

    I think this info from Lenco will be useful for your decision... I believe it depend on the year of your tabs were built. I called Lenco once for support and they were A+.

    Garmin Transducer

    I have the old version which it is the 741xs... For a new boater it is the best, very intuit. My transducer was installed by the dealer. I was recommended to install the through hull. The new one has more detail which it will be nice to have.

    Customer Service issue

    Dear Robalo Managers, Executive, etc., I follow very close the forum for suggestions, learning, general knowledge. I see that the common denominator from all of us, it is that your costumer service and relation are terrible at corporate level. I believe that if all the costumers are demanding more interaction from your company to us, why you do not pay attention. I think in the long run if you do not fix that, your reputation will affect our boat prices as well as your brand.

    Fire extinguisher placement

    I had a R-260 I keep in the starboard compartment so that any one has access to then. By the way as the boat is more than 26 you should keep 2 fire extinguishers.The white ( dry) and the red ( for liquids like gasoline).

  13. I had the same problem. I call Clarion for a replacement. However I bought the Fusion Bluetooth MS adapter so that I can connect Bluetooth to the clarion. You connect and play the music on Aux. http://fusion.factoryoutletstore.com/details/164205/fusion-electronics-ms-bt100.html?category_id=77148&catalogitemid=145047 Installation https://fusionentertainment.com/content/product_downloads/INSTALLATION_DIAGRAM_-_MS-BT100.pdf

    Lookin at a 2015 R260

    I have a R260-2012. It is a wonderful boat. It has 400 Hrs. I mainly use in Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Boca Raton. I take the Atlantic Ocean as my highway and it is great. Very versatile. I do tubing with the kids as well as offshore fishing. A lot of compartments that you will love it for carry all the stuff. The only way that you can have a wet right is when it is windy otherwise most of the time you have dry right. The Head or bathroom it is very decent on space and functionality ( I have never used, but my wife and daughter yes). The access to control panel is very easy. Movement around with guess and kids is very easy. The Water tank capacity is very useful.
