    2018 R200 Delivered

    I'll have to measure my R200 sometime this week for you. Another option you could consider is deflating the tires vs cutting off the rod holders.

    R200 150 vs 200HP real gains?

    Yes, Yamaha. I've had it running 52 (gps) flat calm.

    R200 150 vs 200HP real gains?

    I have a 2016 with the 200. My rationale was having the additional hp available if I need it vs needing it and not having it. We have a lot of drunks cruising around and we tend to run offshore and I appreciate having the extra hp to get out of situations (drunks or weather). I find myself cruising between 3,500-4,000 depending on conditions. I get great fuel economy (in my opinion and comparatively speaking vs my last boat). In addition, I opted for the 200 for resale when we decide to go bigger (again). Its a personal choice based on your wants, needs, and means I suppose.

    R305 breaker tripping

    May be a bad ground or a loose connection. Try removing the Shore power tie in and checking the connections. It sounds like it's a bad ground or it's arcing somewhere and blowing the breaker.

    Sounds like the marina has a problem that needs to be addressed.

    Did you check your Shore power polarity? It could be a problem from the supp,y.

  9. Taz, On my Coyote trailer I'm not real comfortable on how the trailer attaches to the tow ball.

    My old trailer, when you pushed the lever down to lock onto the ball the locking device that hooks around the throat of the ball was much larger than what is on the Coyote trailer.

    When I lock on the ball with the Coyote trailer, it seems to bearly catch the ball. Not sure if that's normal or do I have a defective trailer.

    Can you give me some input on this ?

      You may want to check your coupler. My trailer sits nicely on the 2" ball.  

      As for a lockout going from forward to reverse, no. You certainly can go from one to the other without pushing any buttons. I couldn't imagine messing with a button when trying to back into a slip.  

      As for going into neutral (and not gear) to increase RPM's, in the middle of the shifter, there should be a button you can press to keep the engine in neutral. 

      I hope this helps.

    R200 150Hp or 200Hp worth the 3K?

    YES! I opted for the 200 (with tabs) and couldn't be happier.
