    227 engine/prop resource

    A couple of things that may explain the difference are the relative weights. There was redesign of the motor in 2009 which dropped the weight by 50 lb and likely increased performance. I also heard that the weight of the R227 dropped by about 300 to 400 lbs over the years. My boat is a 2008.

    Actually it turned much better on wide turns. If I am pulling a tube and need to turn really sharp I will trim tab down.

    227 engine/prop resource

    I have a 2008 with 2006 F250. My top end is low 40’s. I noticed a significant difference in performance when I moved the motor to its highest position. I think I have mercury 19.5 prop but don’t know for sure.

    Interesting. Do you have a picture of the planer trees? What are they connected to?

    R 207 Trolling Motor

    It has been a few years since I posted this. Perhaps there are a few new members who have a trolling motor and can answer the question.

    What is under the Helm Seat of a R227?

    Good idea. Did you install one?

    R227 performance issues need help!

    I raised my 250 as high as I could on the transom and it likely gave me a few extra miles per hour - but it I was really surprised at how much the new position improved the ride and fuel mileage. I have a 2008 227.

    Yamaha outboard: 250 oil level question

    I checked the oil in my 250 while boat was in the water and it was overfilled. Pulled it out and checked it on the trailer, still overfilled. Took it to the dealer to have the oil removed and when they checked it was okay. The angle of the motor makes a big difference.

    What type are you looking for. I have the stock mooring cover. Is also have a custom enclosure off the Bimini. In addition to the full enclosure I have curtains that drop from the back of the Bimini to enclose the helm but keeps the back open for fishing and down riggers. Great for spring salmon fishing in Canada.
