    Robalo discontinued the r265

    Belated thanks JOEBALO. You are a real asset to this forum. We love our 2017 r265. Perfect for day cruising and if required, an over night stay. The cabin,also, comes in handy in rain and sun.

    r265 windlass

    Love our 2017 r265. We have learned a lot the past year, but not sure what the red tab is for on our windlass. It has a horizontal or vertical position. It may reverse how the rode coils, but not sure. Please help.

    R265 Cover

    I purchased a new r265 this year and had the same problem. Although our boat is stored in a rack building we decided to cover most of it. We just went to Home Depot and bought a couple tarps. Since then I have done some research and found two companies on line that sell covers for r265’s. RNR Marine and Ameri-Brand Products, Inc. I have not purchased any as of yet, so I cannot vouch for these companies, but take a look. If you do buy please let me know your experience.

    R265 Robalo Lots of Issues Brand New

    Your experience with the new r265 sounds like a nightmare. I also took delivery of a 2017 r265 in July with the opposite experience. We love the boat and have no problems with its construction. Only problem is completely filling the gas tank. Not sure whether it’s the gauge or vent. We have a great dealer and are confident he will fix the problem. Other than that everything, including the a/c, water, power steering, etc. is first class. I hope Robalo or your dealer resolves your problems.

    Engine trim

    Engine trim

    When getting up on plane with our r265 the bow gets very high. I use my trim tabs to lower the bow. The other day someone told me to trim the engines up to lower the bow. I always thought to lower the bow I needed to have my engines all the way down. Help!

    Profile name change

    Right on! I love their boats, but the home office support for owners is virtually nonexistent.

    Profile name change

    I contacted the Robalo site administrator regarding how to change my profile name, but of course, they never responded. Anyone know how?

    Winter storage cover

    Winter storage cover

    Our r265 is stored in a large indoor "boatel" in the winter. It is in a large marina and the soot from the Diesel engines on the lifts settles all over the stored boats. Looking for suggestions to protect our boat from all the soot. Planning on installing our helm enclosure and tarps on the other exposed areas. Any other ideas?

    R242 Fueling problems

    The last couple times I have gotten fuel I noticed the command link gas gauge of my r265 did not read full. I assumed it was a gauge problem, but after reading the comments I am starting to wonder if , in fact, the tank is not filling.

    Buying R227 - 200HP Performance

    Had a r227 last year before buying a r265. My r227 had a Yamaha 200 without trim tabs and we loved the boat. The 200 was plenty hp for us. Buy it without trim tabs. If you are not happy have them installed. Our trips were mostly confined to the inner bays of OC but did go into the Atlantic at times. Never had a problem with its power.

    Fuel tank indicator

    This is a relatively new problem. It always read full except for the last two fill ups. Now that you mention your r227 I believe I had the same problem with my r227 last year before I traded it for the r265. Thanks for the input.

    Fuel tank indicator

    Just filled the gas tank on my r265 today. Left the marina for some cruising and noticed that the fuel tank indicator gauge read about three quarters full. It wasn't temporary since when I returned to the slip it continued to read about three quarters full. I am assuming the float is stuck in the tank or something wrong with the gauge. I have digital engines with the latest Yamaha multifunction display. Anyone have any idea what the problem could be.

    Source of head water

    I assume that the water tank supplies the vacuflush head on my r265. The water from my water tank is clear( after removing the antifreeze). The water in my head is blue. I am sure there is a simple answer, but as new boat owners we are stumped. Is there a place in the head system that adds the blue color as it enters from the water tank. Just curious.
