    2003 R190 - Leaning Post Cushion

    The 2004 R190 Parts Guide (link to PDF download) offers no insight on removing the cushion, but it does includes photos of the live-well/leaning post, which appears to have also been installed through 2006 on R200 models. You may want to join and re-post your question on the Robalo Boating Forum (link to site), which specializes in earlier model-year Robalo boats. Good luck!

    Robalo R180 Cooler

    Cap't Matt: Congrats on your new-to-you R180, and welcome to the Forum! We did not consider the T-top when we ordered our Robalo. We had a bimini and enclosure custom-made for our R180, due to our desire to color coordinate the canvas with the boat. This past post (link to discussion) contains photos and more info on our custom bimini. If you enter 'R180 T-top' into the Forum Search function, you'll find several Forum members who have at least considered an aftermarket T-top for their R180. Good luck!

    Robalo R180 Cooler

    Found via web search, the lower shell of this Coleman 70qt Extreme Marine (link to seller) looks identical to cooler Robalo provided with our R180, though this one is blue... ...while our cooler is all-white... Seller contact info (link to page) may allow you to verify it's the cooler you're looking for, but be aware that the address mentioned is a mailbox store (map link), not a retail store, so be cautious -- I have no experience with this seller. Good luck!

If you enter '2520' into their Forum search page (link), you'll find over 150 mentions of that model on the Robalo Boating Forum. Good luck!

    R180 Folding Windshield

    In this past discussion (link to thread), bboy mentions the vertical inner faces of the aluminum trailer fenders are covered with carpet, which diminishes the risk of hull strikes. Good luck!

    back rest on back seat 2018 R222

    Eman: Thanks for sharing the photos. Robalo has apparently moved from using magnetism to a more positive physical latching mechanism, using a rubber bobbin with an undercut that snaps past the projections inside the bore of the seat bottom's mating part. It's also interesting to see how the seat bottom framing and hinge design has been changed from Robalo's earlier online photos. Good luck!

    Robalo 202 EX

    A few discussions on this topic have occurred on the Robalo Owners Facebook Group page (Group membership required for access), and the causal theories are the port-side battery placement when at rest, and prop rotation coupled with wind effect on the T-top when underway . Several R222 owners resolved the issue by placing ballast bags totaling 50-to-100 pounds, on the starboard side at the stern between the fresh water tank and the hull sidewall. Ballast bags can be filled with either sand or steel shot/pellets, with the steel-filled bags being smaller in overall size. The Sandbag Store and Wake Ballast are among several sources that a web search will reveal. Good luck!

    Siphon gas out of R227

    Remove the engine's fuel line from the priming bulb and attach in its place a hose long enough to reach below the height of the fuel tank. Repeatedly squeezing the priming bulb will produce a siphoning action and a continuous flow of fuel into your fuel storage container. Good luck!
