  1. Perhaps you could convert your stern live well into a fresh water reservoir for washdown use, per this 2018 discussion. Good luck!
  2. Forum Member ba_fisher offered the following photo in this 2017 discussion, showing the factory-installed waterproof ProSport 20 amp 2-bank charger beneath his 2017 R200's starboard jump seat, as described by STS00, along with a white Promariner plug holder for the power cord seen dangling outside the holder... We ordered our R180 with dual wet batteries, but without the optional battery charger. We maintained the batteries using a portable automatic charger, until three Group 31 AGM batteries were added inside the console to power a 36-volt trolling motor... I install

  4. This 2019 Forum discussion includes photos and weblinks that should be helpful to you. Additionally, this 2016 discussion on the other Robalo owners forum includes photos of an above-transom solution, and mentions that Robalo may have back-then considered building a custom storage unit. Good luck!
  5. The 2011 Robalo full-line sales brochure (PDF download link) states Dura-Life Max vinyl on page 5 of 19 of the PDF. This is consistent with a Dura-Life Max vinyl cleaning & care tag (PDF download link) provided on earlier model year Chaparral & Robalo boats. G&T Industries website (link) lists phone numbers and an e-mail address at the bottom of the page which may be helpful if you wish to determine if this vinyl is still produced. If you are do-it-yourself oriented and depending upon the size and location of the tear, you could consider using a vinyl repair kit befo
  6. Could be good news for any owner wanting to sell a low-hours R180. Good luck!
  7. Blue Seas' revised switch design should be more reliable. If you have not already, please consider seeking reimbursement from Blue Seas for the cost of the replacement switch you bought at West Marine. Blue Seas will provide you a reimbursement under their warranty. It is especially true that accessing the switch on a R180 is a pain-in-the-knees experience. Good luck!
  8. In your photos, the failed halves of the battery switch housing are both molded in red, which is the previous-generation switch design. Per this past Forum discussion, Blue Sea Systems revised the switch housing design, which is indicated by a black plastic backing plate. You may want to consider contacting Blue Sea again, in order to receive a no-cost replacement switch of the revised design, which should be less prone to failure. Good luck!

  10. It may be worth a phone call or an e-mail to the dealership offering this new 2019 R272 with the optional console & helm seat covers. Perhaps as a goodwill gesture, they will provide you photos of the installed console cover and track arrangement. Good luck!
  11. Congrats on your R247 purchase! If you are a Facebook user, you may want to consider joining the Robalo Boat Owners Group, which requires membership in order to view Group-member posts. More than 4,800 very active and mutually supportive members from across the country who share their experiences and advice on all things Robalo. Good luck!
  12. Congratulations of your R180 ownership! This past storage discussion may also be helpful to you. If enjoy the idea of drop-in bins beneath your R180's stern jump seats, the widely available and inexpensive Sterilite 1644 16-quart storage box... ...should fit perfectly into the cavity beneath the hinged seat cushion... T ...perhaps also including use of the box lid... (Special thanks to the Robalo owner who shared these images on another discussion site) Good luck!
  13. A couple of alternatives for you: Folbe Products, USA-made Sof-Loc, buy two pair and thru-bolt them back-to-back, perhaps reinforcing the rubber strap attachment onto the T-top tubing with a zip tie for stability... t United Yachting Manufacturing USA-made Pole Holder For Stanchion Mount if 1-1/8"-1-1/4" mount to T-top tubing would work... Otherwise, United Yachting Manufacturing USA-made Pole Holders Flush Mount, buy two pair, with each pair appropriately sized for the T-top tubing and the boat pole, and thru-bolt the holders back-to-back... t Both c
  14. Parts Guide image with labels added... Good luck!
  15. The 2016 R305 Parts Guide (direct PDF download link) shows photos of item 3, the Shurflow Aqua King II fresh water pump (link to manufacturer's website), and item 6, the aluminum fresh water tank, both on page 31. Hopefully, the photo showing the bank of water pumps mounted adjacent to the optional generator and the photo showing the fresh water tank apparently adjacent to the hullside will allow you to locate them on your R305. The Shurflo website includes a Aqua King II installation manual (direct PDF download link) that describes system operation and provides troubleshooting guida
