    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.

    Trim Tabs for R180

    9x9 should work well, 6x12 will work better for clearance with the swim ladder.
  12. Interested in more info regarding your install and performance experience with the trim tabs on your 180.   Thinking about adding to our 180 (with 115 yamaha).

      I added Bolts to mine and they are worth the money that you spend, plane time is faster, planing speed is slower, side to side balance is nice and the boat behaves like a larger boat when running.

    Probably on some days but you'll most likely be replacing it with the longer shaft.
  14. When I picked up my boat and trailer the bunks were parallel to each other and I didn't think anything about it until I put the boat on for the first time and I had a hard time centering it, during my 5 hour drive home I figured out that the bunks weren't centering the boat when it was pulled up to the stop. When I got home I measured and marked the centers of the cross members and measured the whole trailer in general, I found the axle 3/8 out of square. The trailer company paid to have that fixed locally. Next I moved the front of each bunk in towards the center 1/2 inch and moved the back of each bunk out 1 1/2 inch so that now instead of the bunks being parallel there is a slight V between them. The boat centers itself when it's pulled onto the trailer every time.
  15. Is the ramp level under the trailer tires?
