    R227 Head Light

    My 2008 227 has a court light circuit breaker on the helm. Make sure it is turned on.

    R300 Horrible fuel burn

    Check to make sure the height of you motors are adjusted properly. My motors was running too deep and when I had them moved up on the transom my fuel mileage increased by about 20 percent.

    Stress crack on console floor

    FullThrottle how did you caulk the screws. I noticed the screws on the stern seat are all loose. I need to add something so they will stop coming loose. What type of caulk did you use? Thanks

    SWF227 I am interested in hearing how the new prop changed your performance.

    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.

    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?
