    Trim Tab Wiring

    I installed Bennett Bolts on my R-180, it took me right at 4 hours start to finish.

    Jack Plate

    Northern Midwest lakes have lots of shallows, big fish like to lay on the edges of these shallows.

    Jack Plate

    Has any one added a jack plate to a R-180 or R-200? Atlas or Bobs?

    R200/150 Prop Size

    I really liked the rev 4 on my R-180 but I wanted to try the Enertia so after talking to Ken at prop gods ended up with a 17 in. Pitch. The Enertia runs a little loser when trimmed out, has more rpm and a few more mph, the hole shot might be a little slower by maybe 1 second or so. It seems like a good fit on the R-180, the one draw back I have found is the slight side to side wander that mostly went away with the Rev 4. I still have the flo-torq 4 hub but I'm going to try the rubex hub on my next trip and see what the difference is. I installed Bolt trim tabs on my boat a couple years ago, it took me around 4 hours start to finish and it's worth the time and money, it will completely change the way your boat handles sloppy and windy days.

    Gelcoat question

    The state's should be on one side or the other of the bunks not riding on top of the bunk.

    R200 live well pump

    No wash down pump, I replaced the original Bait Sentry with a new one. What's weird is that it wasn't making any noise then in the middle of a trip it sounded like a bearing going out, I made it easier to get to maybe ill pull it and grease it and see if it quiets down.

    R200 live well pump

    Mine got really loud last year so I replaced it with the same brand and size pump but it's just as loud, I don't know what problem is maybe a vibration echoing thru the boat? I think I have to chase it down this spring, post something if find an answer.
