  1. Has nothing to do with suntan lotion, mine did it and nobody was even on my boat with suntan lotion. The fabric was contaminated from the factory, Robalo has since switched to Naugahyde because of the issue.
  2. My trailer has a bracket on the inside back of the trailer on each side, I strap it there up to each u-bolt on the transom.
  3. I've had problems with my R200, but it's more related to the wind blowing me around with the t-top.
  4. You can go to this topic and see the Rigid lights mounted up in my T-Top at the back, I will be adding the same to the front. These don't draw much amperage and are very bright. There is a wiring hole that runs down the front right support tube and into the console area. https://www.amazon.com/MARINE-DUALLY-DIFFUSED-SM-2/dp/B007I5AAPA/ref=asc_df_B007I5AAPA/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312104220456&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=186887862273735519&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvloci
  5. Never seen anything with mine, I would be checking connections. I will say they didn't tighten the ground strap on the engine on mine, that got me stranded the second time out, wouldn't start. Which engine did you get?
  6. I have the 200hp on mine and have no regrets. I really don't see how a 150 is going to out perform a 200 unless it's just a little better fuel mileage, it certainly won't run with it top speed or plane out as quick. The 200 isn't much heavier, so that isn't a concern. If they have boats in stock, they are probably just trying to sell you what they have.
  7. No problem here, but the components are probably made in China, like everything else these days. Chinese stainless will rust, because the metallurgy in that country sucks.
  8. There is a rubber covered breaker on the switch panel by each switch.
  9. We don't use suntan lotion, so that is certainly not the case with my cushions. Robalo did replace my cushions, picked them up yesterday and started installing.
  10. Wow, more staining on the new material? My new upholstery is suppose to be on the way, not what I wanted to see. I have been around boats for close to 50 years now and I never remember this being an issue in the past. We got the Ajax out each spring and scrubbed everything down and we were good to go, now they don't want you to use that because it damages the fabric and stitching. Somehow along the way engineering of materials has gotten worse.
  11. If everything was so bad, why didn't you see it before you bought it? The Robalo boats I have been around may not be perfect, but what boat is.
  12. Same here on the R200, I raise the bow further than the jack will go when sitting in the driveway, otherwise water will accumulate.
  13. I have the same upholstery as the OP, never had a problem until this spring when I cleaned the boat, and it looks exactly the same. Hmmm.
  14. I have the same setup as ba_fisher, mine is mounted at the front though. I mounted it just off center so it clears the light in the back when the antenna is down.
