    Simrad v. Garmin

    I do not know much about Simrad, but I do know a lot about Garmin, and they are so user friendly that you really do not have to read the manual to operate them.

    Bottom paint with sea foam green?

    Do black bottom paint and it will look good.

    This is true on the Cayman 246, however some other boats still have that option.

    Has anyone fished an Explorer?

    There is no perfect boat, that being said, the Explorer is an effort to make the fishermen and the family happy. And the non-explorer R200 or R222 can be ordered with a full width seat that folds down when you want more fish mode in the cockpit.

    Trolling Motor Install on R200

    I didn't see any covers over your batteries, it is required by the Coast Guard that the batteries have covers over them by the way.

    That method is totally safe for the boat.

    R202 bilge pump

    It is not on a timer, so you do have to turn it off if you turned it on. It does have an automatic float.

    Tongue swing

    I just looked at many trailers, many swung to the left, and many swung to the right, so I would say yes you can change it and it won't matter.

    For ease of attachment 3/8 is the better choice.

    Nope that is clearly not the drain plug, that plug is for a compartment on the inside of the boat.
