    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.

    BOAT COVER FOR R227

    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.

    Fresh water leak

    I have a 2008 R 227. My freshwater line has developed a leak at an elbow fitting. I am not familiar with this this type of water line. (Picture attached). Is this a compression fitting or a quick connect? Do I need to replace this or can it be repaired? I appreciate your help. Thanks

    Bottom paint

    I looked into having my 227 bottom painted few years back. I am inthe water 6 months in Lake Huron. Spent some time talking to the interlux dealer at the Toronto boat show and a few dealers. Everyone recommended VC17. I decided not to do it. Let me know how you make out. Are you in Canada?

    2005 227 Top Speeds

    I have a 2008 227 and my top speed is a bit lower than yours. I think my engine was a little low. I had the engine raised when I winterized the boat hoping it will give me some more top end. Is will know in a couple of weeks.
