  1. You may wish to join The Hull Truth Boating Forum and participate on their Robalo Cayman Thread, where this drainage issue and other Cayman topics are discussed by a large and vigorous community of Robalo Cayman owners. Good luck!
  2. Link to Fishmaster accessory mounts. Good luck!
  3. The Spectrum Color repair kit was a color match on the hull of our 2013 R180... Good luck!
  4. For repairing rod holder screw holes: Link to Robalo Arctic White gel coat patch paste repair kit on iboat.com, Good luck!
  5. Our R180 has this hidden horn unit with this style of grill cover... Good luck!
  6. Our R180 has a 6-amp circuit breaker protecting the Raw Water circuit, and the datasheet for your ProBlaster II (PDF) recommends 15-amp protection for the 10-amp max draw of that pump. You could prove-out the fix, by moving up the 15-amp circuit breaker from the 12-volt receptacle, before spending additional money. Good luck!
  7. Mantus offers a beautiful stainless cam-lock rail clamp that could serve as a mount for several of Attwood's ski mirrors. A less-costly, non-marine solution may be a unit designed for offroad UTVs, such as ATV Tek's clamp-on rear view mirror or this one that offers a wider field of view. Good luck!
  8. You may wish to consider a 4-pole to 5-pole wiring adapter, which is best explained in the video on this page. Good luck!
  9. This post on The Hull Truth's Robalo Cayman Thread mentions that a too-long vent hose on a Cayman inhibited proper venting when fuel pooled in a low spot of the sagging vent hose. Additionally, Attwood's installation instructions (PDF) describes maintenance of their Fuel Vent, which includes cleaning an internal wire screen that may become clogged with spider webs or other debris that can inhibit the effectiveness of the fuel vent. The remaining vent system component is the carbon canister, an emissions control device, described here. Good luck!
  10. As crashl describes, if you look in the compartment beneath the starboard stern jump seat, the separator should be mounted on the inboard bulkhead, aft of the battery switch, as shown in this photo of our 2013 R180. Good luck!
  11. Unsure how this pricing may compare to your local Robalo dealer... Link to replacement stainless steel hose Link to replacement transom shower full assembly Good luck!
  12. Link to Spectrum Color's Shark Grey gel coat repair kit on iboat.com. On kpate's past recommendation, I bought and used Spectrum Color's Artic White kit to repair a rock chip near the base of our R180's transom, at the corner of the engine indent. The mixed paste was surprisingly light and fluffy, like whipped cream, but it did not sag away from the chipped vertical surface before hardening. Link to "before repair" photo Link to "after repair" photo Good luck!
  13. This searchable listing of commercially bottled drinks provides dimensions of the containers used. Some 1-liter drink bottles are 3 inches in diameter, while the larger inside diameter of the cup holder is 3 1/2 inches. I have added cup holder inserts that provide insulation and more height for 1/2-liter water bottles and aluminum cans. The insert fits snugly in the cup holder, but it is removable to accommodate my handled mug of morning coffee. Good luck!
  14. On our R180, the 12-volt receptacle is protected a 15-amp circuit breaker that is adjacent to the receptacle on the console dash switchplate. Good luck!
  15. I also have used a clasped vinyl strap to store dock lines on the inside of our R180's console door, as shown in this photo. Good luck!
  16. The 2018 R200 Parts Guide (PDF), on page 16, describes the head compartment fixture as being "LIGHT - RECTANLE RADIANCE 500 LUMEN SURFACE MNT". That description suggests Robalo may be installing this light fixture, which is supplied with an optional switch on the light's face, or, with no switch at all. If your R200 has no visible switch on the light's face or sides, then Robalo may have changed over to the switch-less fixture and wired it into the Courtesy Lights circuit that is switched on the console dash. Good luck!
  17. The center console door in the photos is on my 2013 R180, but a R200 door should be identical. Good luck!
  18. You may want to become a member of The Hull Truth Boating Forums and post your valuation question on their Robalo Cayman Thread. Make sure you list all your Cayman's extras in your post, You should receive prompt and informed replies to your question over there. Good luck!
  19. I purchased a 2-gallon thick-walled plastic bucket with one flat side from a local big-box home improvement store, I intend to store the bucket on a clasped vinyl strap mounted on the inside of the center console door, as shown in this photo, which I mocked up using doubled-sided tape. The top rim on the flat side of the bucket rests atop the console door grab bar, providing additional stability and support, as shown in this photo. Good luck!
  20. The dealer's direction to attach a coiled poly washdown hose to the aerator fitting in the livewell suggests to me that your R180 is not equipped with the optional washdown fitting, which is installed at deck level in the cockpit at the stern on the port side. As others have said, the aerator fitting includes a valve to adjust the raw water flow, which is shown in the closed position in this photo. As the dealer said, the aerator cap can be removed from the livewell fitting, as shown in this photo, to allow a coiled poly washdown hose to be attached, as shown in this photo. My reply to your carbon canister question can be found in your original Carbon Canister thread. Good luck!
  21. The carbon canister pictured at the very top of page 20 of the 2017 R180 Parts Guide is an emissions control device for the fuel tank vent line that terminates through the fitting in the aft port side of your R180. More information on the carbon canister's construction & function is available here. Good luck!
  22. You previously meant to write "Communication and lack of customer service is are the plague of the industry", right? Good luck!
  23. How did your fabricator access the underside of the aft-most pair of mounting points to position the backing plates for the main hoop ? Did they add deckplates to the vertical sidewalls of the engine splash well, or, did they add deck plates on the horizontal surfaces adjacent & outboard to the mounting points, or, did they have a technician with six-foot-long arms reach through the jump seat opening to put the backing plates into position? Good luck!
  24. While not Robalo brand-specific, this August 2017 webinar, produced by Boating Industry magazine, provides overall industry sales data, ownership trends, and potential market forces that may affect future new & pre-owned boat sales.. Online video of presentation visuals and teleconferenced commentary (runtine 1 hour, 4 minutes) Webinar presentation slides only (PDF file download) Good luck!
  25. If you have not already, you may wish to become a member and pose your question at the other Robalo Boat Owner discussion site, which tends to specialize in earlier model-year Robalo boats, where other R2520 owners participate. Good luck!
