  1. I purchased a new R200 a few months back and have only found a handful of loose bolt/ nuts but I think that is to be expected. Nothing a wrench or thread lock won't fix. The bimini is a problem folding back though. The braces dig into the padded sides is my only complaint. I made and mounted some folding brackets to secure the bimini while trailering. I opted for the Yamaha 200 motor and am very pleased with the power and fuel consumption. I do think a 19 pitch prop would give me more top end. It gets on plane in three to four seconds compared to my Formula Fastech which took a week or so. I bought my R200 from All Seasons in CT. Nice dealer and a super deal!
  2. put a dab of thread locker on them if concerned. Happy boating.
  3. Has anyone fed the cable from the transducer to the console on a R200? Thanks for any help. Ron
  4. I live in Virginia but go down to CB as much as I can. We would take my old boat over for lunch at Something Fishy. Bald head is cool too. I'm installing a fish finder/ GPS and about half done. I'm waiting for good weather. What motor did you go with? Did u get the Robalo from Angler's Marine?
  5. Did you catch any fish? The picture of the boat under the house looks familiar. My house is on the north end of Carolina Beach. I always wanted to get the nerve to try frying pan shoals. Ron
  6. Has anyone played with various props on a R200 with a Yamaha F200?
  7. I recently sold my Formula Fastech and went about a month without a boat but got the bug for something a little different. I shopped for a center console that I could use on the Inter coastal in NC. and the Robalo R200 made the most sense. I was impressed with the high freeboard , boat weight and the enclosed head for the ladies that the Robalo offered! One of the factors I took into consideration was height on the trailer. My house is elevated (a block from the ocean) and i needed something that would fit under the house. I shopped several dealers and came across All Seasons Marine, a Robalo dealer in CT. The website showed three 2017 R200's in stock. I settled on a Shark gray R200 with the Bimini, a Yamaha 200 and several other goodies. The T top would have been nice but I was fighting the height issue, so the bimini made more sense. Before the final purchase, I had Nathan, the owner of All Seasons measure the overall height for me with the boat on the trailer. I wound up to be 3" to tall to fit under my house. Nathan did some research and found the folding windshield option and threw it in to make the deal. Robalo shipped the windshield directly to my house within two days! I installed the windshield (good quality item) and backed the boat under the house with three inches to spare. All Seasons Marine went the extra mile for me on this purchase! It was worth the ten hour trek to CT. The performance of the Robalo with the Yamaha 200 is great. I was worried about this, coming from the Formula Fastech. The only issue with the boat is the Bimini top. When folded down, eats into the padding on the rails. I believe All Seasons has two 2017 R200's left in stock if anyone is shopping for a new boat.
