  1. I always assumed it was back up from the drain. Residual water in somewhat horizontal lines moving fore/aft with acceleration and deceleration.
  2. I have the same with my 2017 R222ES. It doesn’t bother me too much as I use them to store lines and fenders. It would bother me if trying to use for dry storage. I bet it could be stopped by using a standard drain plug in each.
  3. That’s a bummer. I have an R222ES and rod storage is my biggest disappointment in a short list. I don’t mind leaving 8.5’ walleye rods in rocket launchers while fishing. Just wish I had a secure place to store them on the boat when not fishing. I do have gunnel storage for 4 rods but max length is 7’
  4. I don’t disagree with you, but we drydock 1000 ft lake freighters in the dead of winter where if blocking patterns aren’t perfect, you can breach a hull. Shit makes me nervous even with a 22’ boat.
  5. Reminds me of friends fishing a couple weeks back. Just got all rigs set up. Older son leans over edge of boat for one last adjustment. Truck keys fall out of jacket pocket. I’m normally stashing those items before I get to the dock.
  6. I’m betting OGR and NJRobert are the same person. Brand new profile. 3 posts only and to this subject in support of OP. It just seems to be too obvious.
  7. He’s created quite a stir on THT as well.
  8. You should consider the safety of other drivers and their occupants as you’re stretching the capabilities and manufacturers specs.
  9. I would think it should be covered under the hull warranty.

    Robalo 222

    Justin, I like your logo. Can you share where you got it from? Was it easy to install?
  11. That’s awesome I rented a cabin in Fish Creek in the heart of Door County on the bay of Green Bay. Cabin came with a dock where I kept my CC. Spent all three days cruising the beautiful shoreline. It’s really hard to focus on work
  12. I’ve been all over the boat. Just finishing up my second year.
  13. When I bought my boat, I went back and forth between the R222 and the R222ES. I liked the R222 flip up aft bench for the fishability, but liked the fit and finish of the R222ES and so did my wife as we were able to see both boats prior to deciding. I was happy with our choice to spend a few extra bucks on the ES and Robalo delivered to our expectations. Only issue after 2 years was a failed bilge pump.
  14. I love my CC for fishing. Wouldn’t trade it for anything. However, for family fun and cruising I would prefer the DC and I think your passengers would too. You being 50 50 on boating activities, I’d strongly suggest walking/sitting around on the decks of both styles and doing so with your spouse.
