  1. Thank you very much guys, Full Throttle, I like that one on Amazon that goes on the key ring. If that fits, it’ll be an awesome emergency one to have.
  2. The reason for the same question Haz is that that site seems to be offering the base plate with it, which of course I don’t need. I was hoping someone sold the plug only so I could buy a couple. I’ll check with the dealership. thanks again
  3. Hey guys/ girls, I lost a drain plug to my 2017 Robalo 202EX and I’m having a hard time finding the correct replacement. Anybody out there know where they sell these things? Do you have to go back through your dealer???????? Any help would be appreciated Merry Christmas, Lee
  4. Hey folks, hope everyone is well and getting ready for turkey day madness. Quick question, I lost the drain plug on my 2018 202ex. It’s the plastic threaded one. I’m having trouble locating one. Anyone know of any sites that sell them or should try and go through the dealer? Thanks for any help you can give,
  5. Thanks for your help fellas, much appreciate.
  6. Crash, Your exactly right. I do have to make a sharpe 90 degree turn to the right backing into my driveway. Then, after un-hitching, it does immediately shift to the right. Is this damaging anything?
  7. Haz, I appreciate the advice. I do like that wheel dock a lot too. I have to keep the boat off the payment and that would keep it from sinking down in the dirt. As for the shift, I’ll keeping chalking all the wheels too. Thanks again, Lee
  8. Hello everyone, I wanted to ask a quick question regarding my trailer to see if anyone has the same problem or advice. I have a R202ex on a twin axle trailer. When I disconnect from the truck, it immediately shifts to the starboard side. I have chalked the wheels and made sure it’s on level ground, but it will still start shifting, sometimes 1/2 foot or more. Is this normal? I even started chalking the jack wheel. Now I do turn the jack wheel side ways, because I thought that would take the strain off the boat. Should the jack wheel be straight?

    R200 VHS mount?

    Hey Ronsaso, I have a R202EX. I don’t have a mounted VHS radio yet, but I did purchase a Cobra HH350 handheld. I bought it because it is bright colored and it floats. Let me know if ya mounted one yet. How far have you gone out so far? Lee
  10. Awesome, thank you Haz. I will give him a call and send some pictures. I appreciate your help and have a great day!
  11. Hello all, I have an issue with one of my trailer’s greese cap not being secure. It is coming off on one side, not loose Elton fall off but enough of a gap to where water is getting in. I’ve had the boat just over a year so I think Coyote’s warranty has expired and this is my first boat. Has anyone had this issue or have some words of wisdom? Could it be as simple as a new cap is needed? If not, I’ll take it to get checked out. Just didn’t want it to freeze up. Thanks for any advice

    Corrosion protection

    Great, that helps a lot. I appreciate it Rick!

    Corrosion protection

    Good deal on the silicon spray, thank you. I was referring (of course) to road hazards in regards to pulling it on the trailer. I’m in central Florida so we don’t winterize

    Corrosion protection

    Awesome, thanks Rick. So the silicone spray is ok for the entire engine block areas? With the exception of the air intake of course. Do you have it fully tilted up with trailering or just enough to clear road hazards?
  15. I’ve had my new boat for a year now so I’m getting skittle more use to it. But I do have two questions for any of you experienced boaters please. First. For corrosion protection I was going to get Yamahshield. Can I simply spray that all over the engine head? Is it ok to spray onto electrical wires and the cowling rubber seals? Secondly, in regards to the outboard. I’ve heard different opinions but do I store it tilted up or down even? I have been trailering it and storing both in the up position. Thanks for any advice.
  16. I managed to break my transducer off the bracket yesterday. Transducer seems fine but the bracket is broken and has to be replaced. I can’t tell if Simrad sells just the bracket alone though and can’t get them on the phone. Just wondered if anyone else ever had this issue.

    How far offshore

    Awesome advice fellows, I really appreciate it
  18. That’s a good idea, I appreciate that fullthrottle. Never thought much about it before. I knew it could happen on cabin boats but wasn’t sure about center consoles
  19. Hey guys, I have been reading about carbon monoxide poisoning and have a concern since I’m new to boating. I have a 20 foot center console with a single outboard. My son likes to ride and even lay down on the stern seat a lot. Is he in danger doing that? Or is he safe with an outboard? Any advice is appreciated.

    How far offshore

    I appreciate the advice Full Throttle. 40 miles would be plenty far enough for me. We were at 2 miles and several smaller boats were passing us going out beyond eyesight. I started to head out further when I noticed the seas were getting a tad rougher quickly. Having my wife and little boy on board made my mind up not to try it and head back in. Definitely need to get a PLB. Got a handheld and there’s a Coast Guard Station right at the inlet so that’s reassuring. I just wondered if the 202 with the deep hull and high gunnels would be fine several miles offshore. My boat dealer said he has been 30 miles out in one but recommend never turning off the engine if you can’t see land.

    How far offshore

    Hey guys, fairly new to boating but took my R202ex 2 miles offshore yesterday and had an awesome time. It handled the seas very well, including the rough inlet getting out there. Just curious about how far you would say you could safely take a boat out that size on a good day? Is 13-15 miles a reality on a calm day with the right equipment onboard?
  22. That looks pretty cool. I think I’ll probably order one. I don’t have the rails on my R202 but I’m sure I could find something attach I it to. We would probably use it to help keep the sun off us while anchored

    Flushing

    Awesome, that’s all I’ll do then. Darn sure a lot easier. Hey Fishhead, one more question please. I bought a hose today for the raw water wash down connection. Do I simply flip the raw water switch or do I need to open the seacock like you do when you use the livewell? In case your wondering, not only is this my first boat but the dealer didn’t tell me anything when I was buying it. I’m having to learn all this alone and through trial and error lol

    Flushing

    Hey woodbiner; Yes I do have that and I flush it after every use. I was just going to do both types of flushing just to be safe. Unless that way is sufficient and I’ll just do that. I just got nervous with nothing comic out of that pilot hole with the earmuffs on. Do you just use the hose attachment only?
